Cracking the WIP!

Wow, Wednesday again! But at least I've been busy working on my WIP! Cracking it open and gettin' it done! Yup, finished up another project this week. My wonky/improv quilt that was part of Leah Day's homework, awhile back, is completed.
I'm surprised how soft this quilt is with this much FMQ!

I sure did learn a lot about quilting on my new machine. I even got back to work on my Expanding Possibilities quilt.

I will say that using the spool net over the thread really helped eliminate the loops I was getting. Just another tool in my tool belt.

I've also pulled out the Library quilt that has been waiting to be worked on.

I plan on doing this as a QAYG. I picked up some batting last night to get going on this. The best part is that I didn't start any new projects this week. I WILL whittle down this WIP list!!!

No questions for Leah this week. I just plan on taking her advise to "Shut up and go quilt!!!"
