I rather like the name "Barberpole Quilt" ... or "Barberpole Twist" or variations on the Barberpole.   Cuz that's exactly what it looks like!

Thanks to you and Suze I have come up with what I'll put on the label: "This Quilted Red Barberpole Twister Was Created For My Kent State Sister". 

I'll include names and dates as well but you don't need that information ....

It's corny but it is very accurate.  wink

Finally finished the quilt I loaded on the longarm June 12. It did not help being away for a good part if the Summer. Having a lunch break and the gonna load the next quilt. I just reached in the bin and grabbed the one on top. It is the bargello we all made at a retreat some years back. Not sure how I am gonna quilt it but I have a few ideas.

On a side note DBIL keeps asking when I was gonna finish the one I just finished. Told him I was gonna get it off the machine today, at which he said "You are gonna run outts stuff to work on." I just laughed and laughed. I assured him that was not gonna happen. The ready to go bin has 12 tops and there are more tops not to mention UFO's.

I do hope to get started on the binding soon.

now that's a cute idea!  I might just do that - those white spaces bother me a bit, that's why I started thinking about doing it as a tessellation

that turned out wonderful.  I love the texture created by the strings.  very nice.

that is a good one.  It should be in the Laugh for the day thread.  he doesn't know many quilters does he - lol.

I think I am the only quilter he has ever known. He does ask a lot of questions and seems to like my quilts.
