WIP It Up!

I have been diligently working to finish up my WIPs/UFOs over the past two months. I'm still not caught up, but I now think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

For my Leah Day homework this week, I was able to incorporate it into a quilt (Expanding Possibilities) that I'm trying to complete. I probably prefer stitching regular paisley, but I love the look of pointy paisley.

 This quilt is just about twin sized, so somewhat large and heavy. So my question for Leah this week is; Do you still recommend the Gidget II sewing tables? I haven't seen them on your shop website for a while now, which I realize could be a purely business decision on your part. I hope that this is an appropriate question to ask, but Christmas is coming! ;) 

This week I finished up some smaller projects and worked on a few more - YAHOO!
Sew Cal Gal FMQ challenge for June - binding done!

Table runner from last week's homework - binding done!

Sew Cal Gal's September FMQ challenge - done!

Embroidered the missing two blocks for my library quilt.

 I was very bad, I ordered some fabric for my next (after all of these projects are done) quilt. I'm REALLY looking forward to starting something new, but I NEED to finish up these last four projects!

My stats for the week:
In-process: (4)
Purple heart wall hanging ( needs borders, backing, quilting and binding)
Expanding Possibilities quilt (Continue to quilt)
Storybook quilt # 2 - All embroidery is done
Geneva Public Library quilt - join and quilt (maybe make a block or two to even it out)

New projects: (0)

Finished (2)
Flip and sew orange table runner - done.
Sew Cal Gal June FMQ Challenge - done.
