Brown Bag Back

Okay, So I was hoping to show the finish product this morning but I am having some tension issues.  Ah, curses to you tension issues!! So anyhow, I am taking a break from my free motion quilting so I can calm down enough to fix the problem :)  In the meantime, I figured I could show you the back of the good old Brown Bag Quilt.  I have to say, I am loving how this make off the fly piecing turned out.  In fact, I love it so much I wouldn't be surprised if a variation of it turned up again in the future :)

Alright, I feel better.  I am off to show my machine who is boss!

Oh, and on a complete side note - We reached 300 followers which means giveaway time, but I am going to ask you to hold tight for a bit, I am hoping to get something special on our trip for the giveaway :)
Pin It!


  1. Melissa, are you using your regular sewing machine for free motion quilting. I use to have tension problems too until I read somewhere to put my stitch width to 0 and do nothing else except that. It worked like a charm.

  2. Hope you work out your tention problem soon.

  3. That is so beautiful! Good luck with your tension issues!

  4. I hear you on the tension issue! I actually got so frustrated with my old Pfaff, that I went out and bought a Janome!! It is much better - doesn;t skip stitches, but I still need to practice more to find the correct tension settings.
    Let us know if you solve this problem : )

  5. Who won out???? Looks wonderful...

  6. Beautiful work! I love the photos so much.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
