What a crazy month! (And we had some very strange weather to go along with it!)
As usual, I didn’t keep real good track of what I was working on — I just had my nose to the grindstone, churning stuff out because of deadlines — and most of that was at the longarm, not block making.
I do recall making 32 blocks for a quilt I can’t show you just yet because I don’t have any pictures of it! But it’s gonna be a pattern real soon, so I promise I’ll show it to you as soon as I get some pictures.
I made a couple of banners for a booth at the AQS Show in Paducah, KY, so I’m gonna count those each as one block. Guess what? I don’t have any pictures of those, either.
Everything else I did all month was at the longarm, so I’ll at least show you a couple pictures of some of that.
This time of year, there’s a lot of secret sewing until the trade show is over mid-May. So here’s the back of one secret quilt I quilted:
Here’s the back of one I quilted for my sister:
And I CAN show you the front of hers — it’s her mystery quilt I showed you in my last post:
And here’s a close-up of another secret project:
Hopefully, I can show you the projects themselves, once they’ve been unveiled (if I can get pictures, that is)!
So I guess that leaves me with a total of 34 for the month. Ten short of the goal for the month, but hopefully I can make up for lost time at some point. That may not be during May, since I still have a lot of time to spend at the longarm.
How did you do?
It’s time to report in and let us all know what you’ve been up to and how many blocks you got made this month!
I’ve got the Project Page updated with all the totals from last month, and our new goal for May, which is 30 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 133.
The prize winner for March is Sherry V., who is up to 84 blocks so far this year — woohoo!
I hope we all have a productive sewing month in May — happy stitching!!!
