She is my LongArm Quilting Machine!
QuiltaLottie and I have been Holding Handles for about Fifteen Years and spent MANY hours
Quilting ALot of OPQ...Other Peoples Quilts...and MOQ...My Own Quilts!
She is a Hand Guided Quilting Machine with Options for Pantagraph Pattern Quilting or Freehand/Custom Quilting.
Pantagraph Pattern Quilting is done from QuiltaLottie's Backside where a Pattern is laid out on the 12 foot table.
Using a Laser Light, I hand guide QuiltaLottie over the pattern and she stitches the pattern on the quilt.
The patterns I use are All my own Freehand Drawn Designs.
I began LongArm Machine Quilting before Technology developed Computer Driven Software for the LongArm.
I enjoy the Freehand Control, so I didn't UpGrade QuiltLottie to be computerized.
Custom Quilting is done from QuiltaLotties Front...shown on the left side of photo.
QuiltaLottie takes up alot of space. She now resides in my garage converted into a Quilt Studio.
For many years she was the main attraction at my Quilt Shop.
I hope you have enjoyed meeting QuiltaLottie and my Lesson on The Letter Q.
