My machine is Bliss

 I updated my longarm machine earlier this year as I wanted to get Quilt Glide and Bliss.  These were both new features that APQS came out with after I purchased my first machine.

I am very happy that I made this purchase. I still have my old machine for sale but it is sitting unused  to the side of my family room.

These two quilts were quilted without using any rulers.  The 9 patch to the right I did mark where the straight lines were going to go with a Frixion pen.  When I quilted it I did not use any of the chanel locks or even a ruler.  My machine moves wonderfully.  All the smaller 9 patches in the outer backgrounds were filled with tiny fillers using the Quilt glide.
The other quilt is for a friend's daughter's wedding, so I won't show the front.  The outer curved border is 10" wide and all of those curves are freehand.  I marked the initial curve with soap, as it had a black background, and that was the only markings. The rest of the sitiching follows the piecing or eyeballed.  Again no rulers.  some of the straight lines are on the diagonal and no problems with them being straight!
I love my Bliss and my machine!
