It's been one month and one week since the EZ Arc quilting template was first offered to the public. Seems like a year!
It's been great, though. Our first order from the manufacturer has almost sold out and more are on order. The EZ Arc tool and all the others to be introduced in the coming months (including the feather wreath shown below) use the same TopAnchor system, which allows the template to rotate around a stationary post fastened directly to the top of the quilt in the stitching area in front of the machine.
The artwork for our new feather wreath template arrived from the manufacturer today for approval. What do you think? The pink will be a much lighter pink when screened onto the acrylic and will help make the guidelines more visible.
Complete instructions will come with the template, but basically you stitch around one teardrop section, rotate the template and stitch the next section. After completing that part of the wreath, tie off the thread and start in the other section and repeat all the way around again. Piece of cake!
I am the furthest from a precision longarmer as you can find, and this new tool makes even my work look good! Here are some samples:
I can't wait until it is available to share with you all. I'm still shooting for the end of this month, but we'll have to see what happens.
Don't forget you have until
