I would like to improve my long arm skills. I have to do this without classes because I don't live close to any quilt stores. So I use on line and talk with others who long arm. Any long armers out there?

I have only done crazy quilt and log cabin. I'd like to learn other patterns to quilt. I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment with my husband, step-son, and a 130 lb anatolian shepherd. I am just now getting my son's bedroom situated where I can have my sewing stuff out in there (he's only with us on holidays and summers).

I have been quilting for about 12 years and have just recently started machine quilting. I would like to learn free-motion quilting though.

My goal is to lose 30 Lbs.

If I remember correctly, the study showed that the harder the skill, the better the brain worked afterward...and that the benefits remained. There are so many things I would like to learn..especially other languages, but it is just not 'IN ME" to do it these days.

I have not yet tried needle turn applique...and am tempted, but have so many other projects backed up, it is a pretty low priority on the to-do list.

Right now I am struggling with the directions for the quilt I am working on...and I am SO grateful to be taking a class with it. I seem to stay confused on this one all the way through. It is def. giving my brain exercise to figure out this one!
