I had 5 baby quilts to get Freeda broken in - and I have to say - I LOVE Freeda! What do I love about her?? - tension is perfect, motion is smooth as butter, M bobbin lets me go forever without a bobbin change, handles are ergonomically perfect for me, controls in just the right spot, the automatic power advance saves so much time and energy . . . I could go on and on - really, I could . . . but I better show you my baby quilts instead. They are just cute and simple - just what I needed to get the feel of the new machine.
Gwen made these three little quilts - Freehand designs, Fil-tec Glide thread top and "M" bobbin (!)

Have a peak at these cute little appliqued quilts - one for a special little girl, and one for a special little boy - Freehand designs in the appliqued blocks, continuous curves in the rest; Fil-tec Glide thread.

Locating Little House Creations with Freeda (the longarm) into Addies Creative Fabrics has been a great move! People are very interested in the machine, how it works, and excited about getting their quilt tops completed - all in all it's been a very positive experience!
I have at least 10 quilts in the que - so I'll be kept busy over the next few weeks until I can devote my time fully to quilting - right now I am committed to another project for a few more weeks. Happy Spring and here's to new beginnings!
