Patriots in Petticoats

Dear Quilting Friends,

This is the Patriots in Petticoats quilt that was a BOM last year to celebrate women and their participation in the Revolutionary War.I pieced it by machine and did the quilting on the longarm quilting machine at Sew Unique Threads. This quilt is made with all 100% cotton fabrics by Marcus Brothers and measures 92 x 92, queensize.

How fantastic that our local quilt shop has the AQS Millenium longarm quilting machine available for rent....with stitch regulator.... and the shop owner on hand to help with changing the bobbin, setting up, and fixing anything else that comes along. My goal is to use the machine at least twice a month to keep "current". There is definitely a learning curve and the only way to improve is to spend time on task.
