Things were pretty quiet around here which made working on K's quilt easy! Not only did I piece together all of the B blocks, I also did all of the ironing *shudder*The plan this week is to start piecing the blocks together, but with everything going on this week --a dentist appointment, helping out in… Continue reading Week 4: The Pokequilt (aka WIP Wednesday)
