    This is the quilt I made a couple weeks ago, got it on the long arm, had it over 3/4 done when the long arm died. So yesterday I got it remounted on the long arm and hoped I could finish without a big change in my free motion quilting. This is the first bigger quilt I have done on it. It is going to be auctioned off tomorrow for a charity a friend of my neighbor's started after losing her 9 month old daughter to a genetic metabolic disease. The money raised goes to Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia for research for a cure.

    Thanks everyone. I had so much fun with this. I had gotten the jelly roll and yardage several years ago for something, I know not what. When I offered to do the quilt I decided to raid my stash and not buy anything for it. Of course I didn't have enough of the yardage to do the back so I decided to do it this way. The only issue I found was quilting over all the seams. Just part of the learning curve. Next I will try some more defined quilting design and see if I can improve that. I learn something new with each quilt I make.

    so, the front was a jelly roll, how did you pick the fabric for the back? your color combination looks so soft and cozy, and your quilting is tighter so it makes the quilt look vintage-it's beautiful

    About 3 years ago I ordered the jelly roll and 4 of the fabrics in yardage, one was 3 yards, the others just one. So when I decided to do this I didn't have enough of the 3 yard piece for the back so I decided to do it that way. I did some mis-measuring on the center piece so kinda flew by the seat of my pants towards the end. Hmmmm! Don't we all do that?!?!? I have absolutely no idea what the original plan for the fabric was. Since I am a new long arm quilter this was actually an experiment in whether I could actually pull it off or not. Now I am psyched to do more. Thanks everyone for all the compliments. I can't wait to see what it brings in. I told her it should bring in at least $150, hopefully a lot more than that.
