The CLA is a professional longarming group, so as you can imagine the competition was stiff. The quilts are absolutely gorgeous! We did challenge quilts to show off our styles, or in my case just to say that I did one. I left mine to the absolute last minute, but I felt it was really important to contribute. It took me longer to load the quilt then it did to actually quilt it. Next time I will plan mine out earlier, but at least I had one hanging.
My Millie got a lot of attention. It was fun to show the attendees what a longarm is and how we use them to quilt their quilts. My next couple of blog posts will have some pictures of the vendors, show quilts and challenge quilts.
