Hi I have finished my first quilt
a MASSIVE Swoon, it was supposed to be for my daughter but ended up making it for my bed (sort of super king size)
Sooooo where can I get such a monster quilted (I am guessing it has to be done on some super special long arm machine)
Any advice would be great

I can HiGHLY recommend Belinda Betts from eucalypt ridge quilting. She's in Orange but I've sent her quilts from Melbourne and have never had a problem. She can provide the batting too which cuts the postage costs and the quilting has always been gorgeous. Her turn around has been pretty quick and her communication great too. Please PM me if you want any more details

I am closest to canberra these days
I will PM you Puggle for the info,
It is a bit of a bug this quilting isn't it? I will do another for DD and have been searching around for a boyish quilt pattern for the two boys
I saw this one (the second quilt down, yellow and blue one)
And thought that could make a rather handsome boys quilt......blues and greens maybe
And because I felt so bad I had stolen DDs Swoon, I knocked up this.

but I think maybe it is the fabric that makes it....
