WIP Wednesday & Wednesday Weigh-In


Karrie Lyne over at Freckled Whimsy is having a Charm Pack Quilt Along.  Yeah, I love to quilt-along!  And I also love the 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain for Moda. 


They’re already on week three, but I just started working on my HSTs so I’ve got some catching up to do.  Here’s one by Kim using the same charm pack:


I can’t wait to get my Charm Pack quilt finished, but first … DSC01537

… I need to finish my log cabin “quilt of errors”.  I have made some progress, and I’m thinkin’ I’m likin’ it!  Check out that middle block … I think it adds character, don’t you?  I’m thinking I’d like to do something other than just a plain border.  We’re heading to Berkeley again this Friday, so not sure if I’ll have this top done by then … but I’m working on it.

Wednesday Weigh In

On a different note, I’m happy to report that I lost 7.5 lbs this past week!!  Seems unbelievable, but frankly I believe most is water loss due to my blood pressure medication which is also a diuretic.  So let it be!  It's good to see the arrow on the scale go down instead of up, and it's a great motivator.  I'm already feeling better!


  1. WooHoo! you had a great week! 7.5 is 7.5 no matter how you do it. I do love your log cabin. The centre works for me. Very striking. It gives it a bit of movement.

  2. Rita, your doing great. I can't believe how well you are doing. You are motivating me to do better! Steph

  3. Congrats on you WWI! And I love the log cabin, that center block adds interest!

  4. Congratulations on your weight loss! The "quilt of errors" should be the "quilt of rights" because it is turning out great. The middle block is nice!
