WIP Wednesday 4.9.14

Here's what happened this week:

I'm still making progress on my Super Mario Brothers Quilt at Cora's Quilts.  This is just the first block of the QA.  There's plenty of time to join in on the fun!

I finished this quilt for the H2H Challenge.  It will be going to Happy Chemo.

I have four rows sewn together for the Triangle QA.

I set four FINISH goals for the Q2 Finish-A-Long (one of them being the Triangle QA above)

Finish Along 2014

I completed the Classic Meetings Modern block for April (I'm still LOVIN' these fabrics!)

I finished the star row for the 2014 Quilt Doodle Designs BOM Mystery for April

I made two blocks for the April Block Lotto

I set my Lovely Year of Finishes Goal (which is a different goal than my Q2 goals...)  I need to make something out of that one little block that I removed from this quilt -- You can tell which one!

I can't believe I got all of this done AND attended an out-of-town wedding for my beautiful niece:

My brother is the tall dude on the right.
Here's a pic of me and my two brothers -- love times like this!

  1. You are keeping busy, Kathy! Mario is sure looking fine. And those triangles? Wow! Love the great mix of colours in your H2H quilt. Congrats on the finish! Glad to see your progress with all your projects!

  2. Lovely bright colours in your H2H challenge quilt!

  3. That is a big list and some great projects

  4. Mario looks great! I did a Mario pillow for my brother in law last Christmas and all the little squares just about did me in.

  5. Your Super Mario quilt is coming along great! I am absolutely in love with the last quilt you posted in this post (blue & teal) beautiful and fun! -Brittany

  6. I am impressed by your output! I wanted to do the Super Mario quilt but decided that by the time I finished it, my nephew would have moved on to something else! Visiting you from Sew Fresh Quilts!
