I am also doing some practice on my FMQ for the challenge this month...Frances has given a wonderful Tutorial to follow...loving the leaves. I still have to get my sample quilt pieced....and I am working on something for next month;

Here is a pic of the quilt for now.  hope you stick with me to see what is coming up later on. Enjoy your weekend.
