Design Wall Monday - Moving Along the Quilt Road

At very long last I have reconnected the Megaquilter after replacing some parts on the frame, and this Log Cabin is the first quilt to go up on it.  I finished it earlier in the summer (it was my July UFO) and I decided after such a long hiatus from quilting that I am going to use it as my "sacrificial lamb" quilt to see if I even remember how to meander.  I've got the bobbins wound and the thread chosen, the machine is oiled and I think I should probably put in a new needle.  It's a lap-size quilt at 48"x60" so it should go fast.  In theory...

Terrific Log Cabin--hope it behaves while you learn to play again.

I was just reading a bunch of Latin sayings in the back of my dictionary today...but the only one I can remember now is Et tu, Brute!

Beautiful quilt. Good luck with your re-education on the quilting.
