I not only finished the top for the April Color Blocks QAL but I made the backing too!

The orange print I used in the backing matches the pink print I used on the front so hopefully that ties it all together. I need to get this puppy basted, quilted and bound in the next few days so I can start making blocks for May. Debby released a hint that we’ll need 35!!

In other quilting news, I’m still waiting on my friend to pick a backing for the Double Wedding Ring quilt but I also have two other tops she sent that I could be quilting on so… I need to have a full-on basting session!


For my first full week back on WW I did pretty good. I was diligent about being ‘aware’ of what I was eating and when, instead of just grabbing whatever was easy whenever I was bored or stressed. It’s not hard to do but yet, it is sometimes πŸ˜‰ I’m down 3.2lbs but I know that’s not something that will happen every week. I also tried to drink at least 4-5 eight ounce glasses of water every day, in addition to my coffee and tea. It’s a marathon so this is just the beginning πŸ™‚

Here’s my 5pt lunch from one day last week, I also had a bowl of blueberries & strawberries. So yummy!

That’s about all for now… enjoy the rest of your weekend!
