Often called functional works of art, quilts are made to be part of your life. Toddlers often find comfort and coziness in them; they enjoy the quilt’s look and feel in their own bed. Eventually as the children grow old, the quilts are handed down to the next generation.
Most people who love quilts don’t have enough time to finish stitching their quilt. They usually end up stored in the sewing room or closet.

What is Longarm Quilting?
Longarm quilting is used to describe the size of the sewing machine. Now, it is used to describe a quilting process by which a longarm sewing machine is used to sew together a quilt top, quilt batting and quilt backing into a finished quilt. The longarm sewing machine typically ranges from 10 to 14 feet in length. One typically consists of an industrial sewing machine, a 10 to 14-foot table, and several rollers on which the fabric layers are placed.
The longarm quilting machine makes quilting a completely new experience. It combines the creativity of hand quilting with the speed and accuracy of computerized machine quilting. Quilting using a longarm machine can take significantly less time than hand quilting or more traditional machine quilting. This time saving is a large factor in the gain in popularity of longarm quilting.
