First quilt off the longarm.....

I have to say...this quilt has been off the rails for a little while and I felt so disappointed with it that I stuck it away. But...I have three quilts that need to go on there like NOW, so I got it back out to put the binding on and it didn't look as bad as I thought.
 
 
I used the "popcorn" panto on it.  Here is a close up.
 
 
I used a busy backing, not only because I liked the fabric, but I thought it would hide any problems that I may have created when quilting it.
 
 
I used white Omni thread on this but that was probably because I didn't have anything else here that would go.  If I had it to do over again, I might have used yellow or a light/med. gray. 
 
This quilt was a result of seeing someone's b/w/red scrappy quilt and I thought I would make it with my b/w stash. Well, that stash wasn't as big as I thought so I went to a shop that was closing and bought a bunch of black and white fabrics.  I CUT THEM ALL UP and sewed them into strips. ...(I don't recommend this).  I made a queen-sized b/w/red quilt; this b/w/yellow lap quilt and I have a bag full of b/w strips all sewn together  that will wait until I am no longer sick of black and white.  I plan on ....in the future...putting those strips together with turquoise or chartreuse.  We will see.
 
So...now on to the three quilts that need to go on the longarm pronto!!!
