I've been trying to use the Sweet 16 we have in the Clubhouse, but think I'd better stick to baking.

Yetta I love her designs. Using a longarm is definitely something that takes hours to master and there are definitely tips and tricks. My biggest trick is that I create a little drag by putting a folded batting strip under the bar to make it a little harder to push. This gives me so much more control and is how I am able to make feathers and little fussy designs.

I'll keep practicing but I began thinking stitch in the ditch would be simple....NOT!  Wish I had begun with meandering instead.  My saving grace is that the backing is a nice, close paisley print and hides a multitude of sins....

SITD is the hardest thing to do with a longarm! The Idea sounds easy but it is not....much easier to do on a domestic. Allover designs where you can be consistently inconsistent are the easiest. Do not aim for perfection just fill the space with a pleasing design and enjoy the process.  Often when I have a bobble and try to find it later I can't.  The thing about using a lingarm is that it is MUCH faster.

Some of those motifs are quite complex.  Even when you break it down into smaller unit, it's still a lot of time to do.   They are pretty, but I'm not sure I'd do some of them.
