Getting back on track

Remember these? I had completed these small improv squares months ago...and I have finally put them together. And another new experience...free motion quilting!!! Never done this before! I think I did a decent job considering I'm using a cheap little Brother machine. It was a little difficult to get the rhythm of the machine...it really makes me wonder what it would be like to sew on one of those fancy quilting machines....oh dreams!

It will be about a crib size once complete...not sure what I'm going to do with it...but it has definitely been a "quilting-on-the-fly" project...and I've loved every minute of it.

Oh wait, more new experiences! I have never labeled a quilt before, so why not start now. This label is a duplicate of my business card, blown up, and printed on fabric paper. The problem...I forgot to put it on before quilting...so I will have to figure out an alternative.

On a side note: I got a new computer!!! The old university laptop was good to me, but now it's time to move on...

That was your first time free motion quilting??? WOW!! I am procrastinating getting started on just that. I have the quilt top but I am so 'afraid' of ruining it with my quilting. Did you practice alot before jumping in on the quilt??
