I finally bit the bullet and did my first panel completely freehand and I really like how it turned out. I do know I need to get an open toe foot for my long arm but I don't think I did that bad without it and for my first time. I had so much fun doing this one I can not wait to load another and have at it. This panel is called "Christmas Treasures" by Susan Winget for Benartex. Not sure how old this one is as a lady from my quilting group at church gave it to me for practice. Thank you for looking.
