help me trouble shoot

Sigh I'm about to stitch together a baby quilt. I can't figure out what is 'wrong' with my stitches. Janome 6500 so It isn't a new machine but I finally decided to use the free motion foot.

The tension is 4.5 and the pressure is dialed to 1. The feed dog is lowered.

The front, daunting that I have 33" x 40" to stitch over, looks acceptable to me.

The back is a hot mess with perpendicular stitches randomly showing up. This is a scrap of 100% cotton home dec fabric from my stash. Your top left side was stitched using a basic running stitch not free motion and it looks good.
