I had fun quilting this on my long-arm machine. I have a Grace King Frame with a Juki TL2200 QVP Virtuoso machine, both were “new to me” and I have had so much fun learning how to long-arm quilt! You can see more about my long-arm setup here!

This is the first time I’ve done a design like this. It’s definitely not perfect, but I had a lot of fun and love how it turned out!

    1. Hi! Yes, I typically sew with a scant 1/4″ seam, but you don’t have to. The math should still work out if you’re exact. If your seam is a tad over 1/4″ that might cause issues. I would recommend testing your seam allowance, sew a seam then check with your ruler and make any adjustments needed. Then using either a 1/4″ foot or adding some masking tape or washi tape to your machine to help guide you for more accurate seams.
