Three entire months of this year gone already — can you believe it?
Have you gotten as much done as you wanted to?
I did a lot of sewing this month, and as usual, once I started counting, it’s more than I felt like I did.
That’s the good thing about keeping track — it makes you realize you get more done than you think you do . . . or sometimes, you don’t get enough done — right?
Here’s a few shots of some of the things I’m working on.
For the most part, I forgot to take pictures of some of my blocks, and they’re already off and gone to their new homes. One of those was a signature block for my friend, Victoria’s, signature quilt. If you’d like to send her a siggy block, just click HERE for the instructions. She’s still collecting. (My Cowboy even made one for her!)
I’m counting this table runner as 3 blocks. You can read more about this project HERE.
It’s called Ferris Wheel, and it’s by Elizabeth Dackson of Don’t Call Me Betsy, and this pattern is in the July/August 2013 issue of Quilty magazine. I attended a “Paula Party” at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop when this was the project, and got a good start on it, and now I’m trying to finish it up. The Paula Party was so much fun, I’m already signed up for another one in June! Here’s one of my blocks (I have 6 of the 20 done so far):
This quilt is a Kaffe Fassett pattern, and I can’t tell you which one right now, because I can’t find my book that it’s in. But I had these already cut out, so I put them together. Now to find the book, so I can finish the quilt! It’s still packed away somewhere . . .
Excuse the crinkledyness of my blocks, please. I’ve had them packed into my carry-around sewing bag so I could work on them!
So that makes a total of 61 blocks that I made this month. How about you?
It’s time for you to report in and let me know. Post a link if you have one. I love seeing pictures to go with the reports. I’ve already heard from some of you. I’ve also updated the totals with our goal for April, so keep on stitchin’!
