Longarm Lesson!

I had a longarm lesson!

It was awesome. Here are some pictures of me attempting this art form at American Professional Quilting Systems in Des Moines, IA. My teacher, Dawn Cavanaugh, is truly an incredible longarmer and I couldn't have had a better teacher.mary fons, quilty, longarm, cavanaugh, apqs
Seriously, you guys. This is really fun... The photo below is of my bee. (It's kind of a bee.)

So is that what is known as a quilting bee?

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Ha! Oh, Gayle. Quilting bee. That's really, really good. And Barbara, I really was having fun. And strangely, my hair is sticking up, almost like I'm moving really fast... Ha!
