I have had a quilt on the longarm for way too long. Ran into a problem using pink thread on a busy fabric that had pink in it. Therefore I couldn't see where I was going.
So, I made Jamie Wallen's side light . You can see the video on his YouTube site.
It helped tremendously.
This is a charity quilt made by a guild member and they ask for people to quilt them. I took this one to practice my free form feathers. (they only have 100 that need to be quilted!!!)
I worked in the "dark" with only the side light so that I could see the shadows of where I was and where I was going. I highly recommend throwing one of these lights together rather than trying to adjust lamps here and there. Quilting is supposed to be fun....not so much work.
Here are a couple pictures of the backing.
Ok....back to my stars. I have started putting the rows together. It won't be long before it is a top.
