Longarm Tuesday

I think it's time to spill the beans. I bought a new longarm machine, the Handi Quilter Fusion. It was delivered in August:

I assembled it and have been on the road ever since.

After I got home from Houston last week, I finally had time to play with my new baby. I am so in love with this machine! It loves threads!

Threads like Glitter:



And threads like Rainbows:



It also has a stitch regulator (actually two!) and is so easy to control.

I just finished sample fora The Quilt Basket. They gave me permission to post it here:
Cathy is such a precise piecer. Look at all of those points!!!

Feathers:
Inner borders:

Hard to see, but detailed quilting of the border fabric:


Please check out the Quilt Basket and their blog.

Oh man I don't know what I'm drooling more over, your gorgeous quilting or the fact that you have a Fusion.
