Meet Miss Daisy-My Long Arm Quilting Machine

dscn0809

This is Miss Daisy, as in driving Miss Daisy, because I feel like I am driving while I am operating her. I got her in December 2014 so we have been together a little over two years now. The first year we had a love/hate relationship. After the learning curve and a trip back to the dealer in California we worked out our disagreements and our relationship is much better now. Not to say that we don’t have a little spat sometimes, but we can usually get through an entire quilt now without one of us acting out.

This was a very big expenditure for me but I knew if I was going to continue with my love of quilting I needed a way to make it happen. I hand-quilted for many years but my aching hands and the time it took to complete each quilt convinced me to bite the bullet while I was still able to enjoy my hobby. I do have to admit that I enjoy the actual quilt construction  better than the quilting but I am thankful to have a long arm.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.
