WIP Wednesday #36

This week was quite productive for odds and ends plus one BIG project.  Today I finished rows 3 and 4 of the Victoriana Quilt Designs Fabric Party Quiltalong
I really like the colors on this quilt, it's the Seaglass Jellies and bundles from JoAnn Fabrics with just a couple of my others thrown in to break up all of the prints.
I decided to get in on the Kaleidoscope quiltalong with Don't Call me Betsy at  Right now I don't know exactly how I'm going to do the colors.  It's just pink prints and more pink prints...  The solids are just multiple shades of pink.  Boring, boring, boring.  I am making it baby quilt size.
I am pleased with completing the We Can Do It Skill Builder Sampler Block #3.  LOVE my colors on this quiltalong as well.  Block #3 is the Churn dash on the left in the photo.  Here it is with it's friends.  Get the details at

I also made my five sets of blocks for the block lotto for July already!  Yes, it has been a busy week!
And for the grand finale this week, I finally sandwiched my Country Kitties California King quilt.  Wheeee!
It's ready and waiting to take over the kitchen table for quilting some day. 
Yes, I'm still joining quiltalongs and such.  But I am also keeping up on them.  What's one more block/row per week?  Ha ha.  When will I learn?
