Big stitch - first attempt

Well here it is. This is my second block. The first one was just straight lines and the stitches were hard to see in the photo.  The stitches in the center of this one don't show up very well either but you can certainly see the brown area.  I used a chalk pencil to make my arcs.  Couldn't get that rocking motion going so it's pretty much stab stitching in some areas. I'm blaming the Warm n Natural batting as someone here said it would make things difficult. Not sure if my stitches are…

looking for advice

So I need some advice. I made a quilt back, but I like it too much to be a backing for that particular quilt! I want it to be a front. So I have it laid out (a little sloppily, sorry) with a piece of fabric I'm thinking of using as a backing.  I know backings don't necessarily have to match the front, but do you think this looks good at all?

Longarm for sale

I know there was someone here that was wishing for a longarm.  It's expensive (although I know nothing about pricing these), but this blogger in Portland, Oregon, is selling one with lots of extras:
