Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt

I made this rainbow log cabin quilt for my step daughter.
She sent me a picture of a similar log cabin quilt she liked and I created a pattern in EQ7. This pattern was super easy to put together. The blocks are very large. I think they are 28" blocks! This was my first log cabin quilt. I really liked piecing it together.

I have have had the top finished for a few weeks and now I am ready to quilt it. I thought about doing an all over design with my Pro Sticher but I really didn't like any of the options I looked at. So this one is going to be quilted free motion!

I have 4 sewing machines in this room!  I had to move the longarm into the closet to fit them all into the space.  I love this space now! All that was missing was some sound! I know you were probably wondering were this was leading based on the title of the post!
I have been using my iPad to watch (more like listen to) Craftsy videos or movies but I couldn't really hear it over the sewing machine. Yesterday I decided to look at buying a speaker for my iPad or IPhone.  I spent 2 hours at Best Buy testing all the Bluetooth speaker…
