Today hubby and I took the mini for a spin, up to Yorkshire to collect the Moonridge auction quilt that I had quilted by a pro this year. It really looks fantastic! So thought I would post a photo here, so you can see what professional quilting really looks like.

Wow! do they do that by hand or do they have computerised machinery? The pattern is quite complicated.

As usual, your colour schemes are gorgeous. And of course those pics do add a little something...*G*

This is done with a Gammill sewing machine. The thing is huge and costs around ten thousand pounds to buy.

They use what they call pantograph's and follow that with a laser light, this is how this one was done. The pattern used here is called 'Bear Claw'

Yeah! The pictures help allot I would say..
