revving up the longarm....

Was December the last time I used my longarm? Well, it's not that I haven't been making things!  Last week, I got the Shindig 2013 Raffle quilt for quilting from Alice and Ann.  The red and white wide backing I ordered arrived the next day.  I took this photo before loading it so I could figure out the quilting design even after I got it mounted on the rails.


 The backing fabric is barely visible in the upper right  of this photo. This should be a straightforward quilting exercise, and I got started today.  This will be raffled during the summer Shindig on the Green concerts, like last year's.

This is a very interesting pattern. What is the name of it? Of course, I am always in love with RED!!!

I am going to look forward to the "after" photo. Does the quilt have a name yet?

I want to make this quilt with gradients.

I like that pattern! I, too, will be interested to see how you quilt it.

The pattern is called "labyrinth" by Debbie Maddy.
I think the backing looks great. Anxious to see it quilted, Cheryl.
