One month of the 350 Blocks Project: 2013 is already finished. Can you believe it’s February already? I can’t. I wasn’t done with January yet.
So far, I’m managing to do really poorly at my own game, but some of you — some of you are really overachievers! Wow!
We only needed to make 17 blocks in January, and some of you are past even what we’ll need to make for February — maybe even March! Are you prepping for having an off month later or something?
I think I’ve had my off month right out of the gate. I only made 4 blocks in January. I didn’t even find time to sit down and make some easy 9-patches to catch up. Here’s what I got done . . .
My guild block to hand in at the February guild meeting:
Two half-square triangle blocks for my HST quilt (out of the leftovers from the above block):
And the quilt top for the quilt I showed yesterday, Peace, Love, and Lotsa Orange. It was just one big block, so . . . all that work, and it only counts as one block still! But it’s a cool block. (If you want a chance at the pattern, go read yesterday’s post and get in on the give-away before it ends.)
Anyway, that’s what I got done. Now . . . all you participants need to let me know your final January totals by Monday, February 4. You can leave a comment on this post, and if you write your own post about it, be sure and leave us a link. You can also email me your total, or use the contact form HERE. But you need to give me your updated total, and let me know you’re participating, so you can get in on the drawing.
On Monday, I’ll draw one random winner from everyone who met the goal of at least 17 blocks, and one random winner from all the participants in general (excluding myself, of course). Winner of what, you ask? Well, I’m not tellin’ . . . but I’m sure I can come up with something suitable out of the inventory closet.
I’ve updated the 350 Blocks Project page with the goals for February, so head over and check it out. You can see what everyone else got done, and get inspired to get stitchin’! Me, I’m going to an all-day quilting party tomorrow, so I hope to get caught up. We’ll see . . .
