  1. Wow, how impressive, Marion! You got so much done last week! Your Mario blocks look awesome, it must be taking forever to sew those squares together. What size are they?

  2. Thanks for joining :) Love those shams!

  3. Far out that is some list! I couldn't cope with so much on the go! lol

    But I love the pattern for the top you are going to do for your son! Looks really cool! Must check it out...

  4. Love all the Mario blocks, and Katie's bug quilt!

  5. I love your reunion charm quilt, just may need to try that. Good luck on that bikini!

  6. What great progress. I really like the pillow and the mario blocks.

  7. You are so organized with your to-do list!! Isn't Kelsey's Hustle great?! It's kept me on track these past few months!

  8. Love the orange in the pillows. I love orange what a pretty color not used enough. Also love the mario. One day going to do that as it looks fun.
