I hope we’re all busily making blocks this year.
It’s one of my goals that, as a group, we can break all of last year’s records!
We’re off to a good start with that, because we have 86 participants signed up so far — woohoo! And if you want to join in, but haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late. You can help us break those records. Here’s how the Project works: The 350 Blocks Project, 2015.
This month we only had to make 20 blocks — so how did you do?
Here’s some of what I did . . .
I made this block for our guild exchange in January:
I made this one for our guild exchange in February (and you can get this pattern free HERE):
I made 13 blocks for a quilt that will be published later this year, so I can’t show you those just yet.
And I made the 13 blocks for this quilt, also a free pattern you can get HERE:
I made 12 of these little stars to add to my guild “Merry-Go-Round Challenge”, which will be finished soon, and I can show it to you then:
They’re little 6-inch (finished) Variable Star blocks with plain centers, made all scrappy, but with the same background. Very quick! I’m thinking I might put up a tutorial for making them — if you’re interested in that, let me know.
And I made several other blocks that I’m going to count later. I don’t want to get confused and count them twice, so I’m just going to count them all when the top is finished.
So my January total is 40 — which gives me a little leeway to have an unproductive month later, if that should occur. I have some applique to do — that’ll slow me down!
How about you?
Some of you have already reported in — for the rest of you, it’s time — time to let me know how you did for January. Just leave a comment here (and put a link if you wish, so we can go visit your blocks), or contact me to let me know your numbers.
Also, be sure and check the Project page to make sure I have you listed, have your blog linked (if applicable), and have your totals correct. The bigger this project gets, the harder it is for me to keep track! I don’t want to short anyone, so you need to double-check me and let me know if a correction is in order, OK? Thanks!
February’s goal is 30 blocks, for a yearly total of 50 so far. That’s more than a block a day, since February is short . . .
You better go get stitchin’ . . .
