Ready to learn - free motion quilting

I found fabric for my "practice" quilt.  Christine's instructions on A Few Scraps were, if it is ugly, you got the idea.  I am supposed to use fabric that I wouldn't ordinarily use on a quilt. After sewing it all together, I found that the quilt width was about 2" shorter than she suggested.  I don't think that will matter.

I also found 3 pinned and ready to sew place mats that will be perfect for my scrap try outs.  I already have one that I tried free motion on about 2-3 months ago. 

Now to find some batting for the quilt.  I think I will have enough of the fabric I used for the wide sections to use for the backing.
