Aiming for Accuracy Is Stretching My Skills!

I'm really enjoying the Aiming for Accuracy quilt-along.  I'm also going to start Leah Day's quilt-along to improve my fmq.  I hope to get started on that today, along with working on a project for quilt club.  Oh, and there is that blog hop of Madame Samm's with ruffles that I need to work on!  Oh, so much to do, and I  am having so much fun doing it.  I almost (I did say "almost") don't want winter to end, because there will be less time for sewing!

I decided that I should start my Aiming for Accuracy lessons by making a practice block using muslin and scraps.  My actual quilt is made of batiks, but I think I'm going to like both of them equally.  Here is what I have done so far:

This is my practice scrappy quilt above.  Below are my batik blocks. 

I am really pleased with how this quilting is going and how it is improving my skills!  What are you working on today?
