#4 "Free" at last!!

Well I did it!!! I turned on my long arm sewing machine and left the computer off!! Yup, you heard it, free motion all the way!! lol
I have been so worried about messing up a quilt! You put so much time into piecing it, that I just refused to attempt free motion.
 So I decided to gathered all the fat quarters in browns and make a picnic blanket!
Truth be told I grabbed every fat quarter that I wondered "why did I even buy this" and made bricks and 1/2 bricks and built a "wall", with a border,
and I looked at this wall quilt and shockingly really liked it, and started to think...I can't quilt this free motion, what if I mess it up!!! So it sat for a week, till I decided to jump in!!
Day #1-- as stated on instagram...3 starts resulting in stitch ripping....thread issues and bobbin issues and threading machine issues

resulted in skipped stitches and improper tension.( I did learn something though, gently rubbing the new white eraser over the ripped threads lifts them out quite nicely!!)
So what do you do when nothing is going right... throw my hands in the air, and make cake!!!!
Banana Chocolate Chip!!
Day#2, 3
So I took a few days off and now went back at my free motion attempt, and let me say, although far from scale isn't consistent and I forgot to baste the sides... oops
and I got lost a time or 2...
overall I have to say....I FEEL LIKE A ROCK STAR!!!!!!!
I did it, nothing super bad happened... I survived.... and I have a quilt done, beginning to end by me!!

All that's left is the binding!!
I've climbed my wall and lived to tell about it!!

#5 What about you?
