First time long arm quilting!

This is Vladimir.  He is one of my 3 Siberian Forest cats.  He loves to get under the quilts I am working on while they are in my lap.  In this instance, I am binding it and he is hiding underneath. 

This quilt is something I threw together in one evening with left over fabric from a much bigger project I am working on.  It's Amy Butler's Soul Mate fabric  but the pattern is her Lark Quilt on her website.

This ladder is very special to me!  It was my granddad's ladder.  He passed away about 3 years ago but when we cleaned out his house, my Uncle came across this ladder and hid it from me so that he could surprise me.  He refinished it and gifted it to me last Christmas.  It was a complete surprise to me.  It means so much to me because he was the most wonderful man!

This is my first attempt at long arm quilting.  I love how it turned out.  Faster and more professional-looking.  Of course I love my hand quilting but this is much easier and faster.  Definitely something I will be doing more in the future.
