My Firrst Longarm Quilt

I have an old-old Gammill longarm quilting machine. It was made in 1990 and actually looks kind of scary. I've had it since Aug. of 2011 but am only now able to sew on it. Many things have had to be replaced, motor, tension device,belts and the dial that adjusts speed.
My first quilt, a "Jacob's Ladder", was finished yesterday and I will post a picture soon.
The quilt design is free motion and is what I call a squared off meander.

Free motion quilting, from moving the fabric to moving the machine, what a steap learning curve this is going to be!!!
