January 350 Blocks Report

Here we are at the end of January already! If you looked at the Project page, you will have noticed that our monthly goal for blocks in January was only 10. Since we kicked off mid-month, I figure that’s a doable number. I have the Project page updated, but please double check me and make […]

November 350 Blocks Report

I was at a retreat all this past weekend, and as I was sewing away, my friend Linda asked me, “Did you post this month’s block report?” Completely shocked, I had to answer NO! I had not even realized it was the end of the month, I’ve been so busy traveling and doing other things! […]

September 350 Blocks Report

I’ve been in complete denial that September is already over, and that we’re already at the SECOND day of October! How can that be? I had another slow block-making month, but since I’m a bit ahead, that’s OK. But seriously — can you believe we only have 3 more months left in 2017? I’m already […]

Posted on September 1, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

I sure hope your August was more productive than mine for block making. I have a big, fat ZERO for this month to add to my total. I kinda knew this would happen. I’ve mostly been at the longarm or pattern writing. That doesn’t leave much piecing time. I hope to do much better than […]

June 350 Blocks Report

So how about those stellar numbers? Did you manage to make a lot of blocks in June? I got to go to a retreat last weekend, and I put on a veritable piecing marathon! I had several projects completely cut out and partially pieced, and I was on a mission to finish those tops. I […]
