Have any of you used the longarm for piecing? Several quilters featured on The Quilt Show (hosted by Alex Anderson & Ricky Tims) have mentioned they do their piecing and — most interesting to me — collage work on the longarm. I still consider myself a new user; I have quilted a few quilts on my Lenni, but am intrigued by the idea of using it for creating the top, as opposed to only using it for the final quilting. I’m not quite sure how to proceed. I guess just attach the background fabric to a front and back roller and begin? Are there special considerations to be aware of since there aren’t 3 layers - such as tension, etc. If you’ve done piecing and/or collage on the longarm, would you please share any tips or suggestions,? Thanks, Susie
I had some fun this morning piecing then quilting on my long arm have been wanting to do this for awhile it was quick and fun. I used a minky blanket for the back then a thin 80/20 then stitched different width strips together on top, tried a bunch of different free hand designs a great way to practise a design you have been wanting to try . I have included front and back pictures
