This quilt became a group project when Corey and Brian began a discussion on different longarm machines on their men's quilting Facebook group. Brian pieced the quilt and requested that Corey longarm it using a Millie AQPS machine. Brian lives in Ohio and Corey in Alberta. The two have built a friendship because of this conjoint project.
