WIP Wednesday

I have got my charm pack challenge quilt basted and ready for quilting. I kind of know what I want to do, I just need to take the plunge and actually start quilting it. 


Using the remaining fabrics and a lot more Kona snow I put together a back, which is almost visible in this picture. In the end I used the whole charm pack apart from two 2.5" squares! So that in my book can't be bad! 

Looking at the picture now it is hard to believe it was taken yesterday. Today is wet and chilly again! It changes so quickly!

Whilst contemplating the quilting of the charm pack quilt I have been working on some of the Mario blocks. I now have nearly 7 completed. Poor Luigi needs a head! But I think that takes me to half way through the quilt now, thank goodness!! I really like it but it's not an easy one to do!

I have this lovely stack of fabric to work with too! Loving this Comma range, so fun and bright. 


Lastly, I can't help but share this picture of our youngest little girl graduating from preschool this morning! It was so sweet!

  1. Good on you for getting so many of the Mario blocks done :D I managed to buy fabric but haven't actually DONE anything with it. Haven't even taken it out of the package!

    The charm quilts look good!

  2. Oh I love Comma! :)
    your little girl looks very sweet.
