The first quarter of 2018 is now behind us, and we’re speeding toward the end of the next one — boy, how time flies!
I did a little bit better this month, thanks to my guild’s retreat. I ended up with 51 blocks for March — I finally met the goal for once!
I finished Block 14 of the Anthology quilt:
Houses 9-14 of the Village quilt:
I made this scrap block for Janet at the retreat, for a community service quilt she had us work on as a group:
I completed the 12 blocks for my Mystery quilt — the big reveal is at our April guild meeting, so I’ll show it to you then.
And I made this quilt top from a jelly roll, and I’m counting each long strip as one block, so 24 blocks:
I also made 5 blocks for pillows, and I’m working on a couple of quilts that should boost my block total some. I’ll show those to you after they’re not secret any more.
So how about you? Did you have a productive March?
It’s time to report in with your new totals, so leave a comment or contact me to let me know how you did this month.
Our new goal for April is 44 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 103. Some of us are way past that, some of us have some catching up to do, but that’s OK. There’s still a lot of time left, even tho it will seem to fly by!
The prize winner for February is Pam M., who is up to 83 blocks as of the end of February. She’s ahead of the game!
I have the Project page updated as of the time of this post, and I’ll try to update it in a few days after more totals have come in, so check there to see everyone’s progress (and to make sure I have your total correct).
Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, and April Fool’s Day. April Fool’s indeed — we’re under a Winter Weather Advisory until 7:00 tomorrow night! Sunrise services are going to require a winter coat! How is this spring? Brrrr!
Whatever your weather, I hope you have a fabulous weekend, a wonderful Easter, and a very productive April — happy stitching!
