A little win

Last week I found out that I had won second prize in the Australian Machine Quilters Association Challenge, there were 4 categories and I was in the pieced, hand guided.
This included long arm machines and home machines. I use a Bernina 820 to machine quilt.

I am extremely happy with this win, as even though it was a small group of quilts the competition was quite strong and I suspect that many of the other quilts had been quilted on a long arm (more professional type ) machine.

The orange is a Lisa Walton hand dyed fabric, the grey is a perfect fit and  allows the whole piece to shine. I used some funky coloured threads, purple, green and blue.

Overall a very happy quilt and a very happy quilter!


  1. Congrats, Jane - who needs a long arm?????

  2. Congrats and yes I agree with Chris, who needs a long arm. I make quilts for a profession and I rarely pay for machine quilting, mostly its all free motion baby for me!
