First off the Nolting!

      A lap quilt of exploding squares is the first quilt off the Nolting longarm. I used Glide on the top and So Fine 50 on the bottom. I found I could not do diagonal lines without big wobbles. Surprise, I did not know that you could not. I found out from the dealer that I need to purchase a ruler base and rulers to do diagonals. Who knew? I wonder what else I don't know that will surprise me. 
     A good surprise was that when I removed the quilt to photo on the design wall, it laid absolutely flat. Without being stretched and pulled through a domestic machine, but moved on roller bars, it stayed in a true shape.

Yes, isn't that the most pleasant surprise that they are flat when done?

Sweet. Did you get the ruler base yet?
