This is where I quilt. Heartbeat quilting has 3 Gammill longarm machines, and once they teach you how to use them, you can rent them and have access to this light and spacious studio. My friend, Stephanie, came with me to quilt a couple of whole cloth quilts for her boys beds. She was the photographer and a great assistant. For me this was a fun outing, a chance to get to know Stephanie better and talk about sewing and our kids. I remember being amazed the first time I heard about these machines. Rory came home from running errands one day and told me he had popped into a quilting shop and had seen a demonstration of a sewing machine that you drive over the fabric. Rory doesn't sew, of course. He only went in because he knew it would interest me - boy was he right! I've included a great (and clickable) collection of pieced quilts below to whet your appetite for the still very much alive art of quilting.
