Independence WIP

Happy Independence Day! I'm free, free to stitch! I'm all WIPped up and ready to sew, which is a good thing since I'm behind on Leah Day's QAL homework.
Wonky/Improv Quilt - Leah Day's QAL homework.
I don't have enough of any one tan background fabric, so I decided to mix and match some tans and hope that it looks tonal. Right now it reminds me of torn-up paper bags, LOL! It will make a nice throw/beach blanket. I still have to trim/square it up and stitch it together.

I did get quite a bit of FMQ done this week, though. I completed my Sew Cal Gal's FMQ Challenge for June. Leah mentioned that this is similar to how we are going to FMQ the wonky/improv quilt. To me it's just GROOVY!

 I also finished my baby Urban Nine Patch/ FLMQG solids challenge quilt. Even though my lines of stitching are a bit wobbly, I'm really proud of how well this quilt turned out.
