I love going to Waxahachie - it's such a unique town. I went there today to attend a Charity Stitch-A-Thon at Seldom Seen Quilting, a long arm quilting business owned by Diana Buckley, who is a member of my quilt guild. Even though I've been to Waxahachie many times, I had never visited Seldom Seen Quilting, which is right across the street from my favorite quilt shop. Diana celebrated her business's one year anniversary by hosting the Charity Stitch-A-Thon.

I really appreciate the opportunity to quilt on the long arm machine. This quilt got done a lot faster that way. Quite a few other guild members came to either quilt or help finish other charity quilts by binding them.
Here's a couple pictures of my quilt that I took when I got home and the lighting wasn't very good.
When I get the binding on, I'll take a better picture
Thanks Diana! By the way, Diana teaches people how to use her long arm quilting machines and then rents the machines out to them so they can do their own quilting. Visit her web site here.
