Long-arm quilting machines are becoming more commonplace as time goes on. Many quilters enjoy the design and piecing together of quilts, but for a variety of reasons will have their quilt tops quilted on a long-arm machine. These machines look like a cross between the large quilting frames of the past and a sewing machine with a deep throat. Quilts with an all-over pattern done via computer aided sewing are the least time intensive, followed by computer aided custom quilting. This is done by chosing a computerized design and limiting it to certain areas on a quilt, requiring set-up for each area before stitching.
