I can hardly believe this is already our 4th report for this year — time is just flying! We’re having a lovely spring, and hot summer is just around the corner, I’m sure.
I’ve been super busy this past month. I spent a lot of time at the longarm, feeling like I’ve been quilting in slow motion. I’ve also been preparing things for the Arrow Rock Quilt Camp, which starts Monday. No, I’m not teaching at Camp this year, but I’m making a couple of brief appearances — first, to wrap up last year’s Block-of-the-Month, and second, to launch the new one, which will also be shown here on the blog and open to anyone, so stay tuned! They asked for a spring theme, so I hope I’ve managed to represent that well enough.
I didn’t post this report yesterday because I was still busy making blocks clear till the end of the day, and I wanted to count them!
I ended up with a total of 166 for April. (Told you I was busy!) Most of them I will be showing you as the next week unfolds, but here are the ones I can show you now . . .
I made 16 more blocks for my Limerick quilt:
I made 11 more tiny HST blocks for my scrappy HST quilt:
I made 8 blocks for my Panel Challenge quilt (and I’m not done yet):
I did some appliqué that I can’t show just yet (but you can see a sneak peek of it on Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s IG feed HERE), and I’m counting it as 8 blocks. The rest were for the BOM which I’ll show you next Friday, and for another pattern that I’ll be introducing next week (that you’re for sure gonna wanna see).
So that’s it for me. How did YOU do? Did you get any sewing time in? Or were you too busy getting outside to enjoy the weather?
I’ve got the Project page updated as of this morning, and our new goal for May is another 31 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 136.
The prize winner for March is Suelynn. She’s up to 87 blocks already — plugging right along!
Be sure to leave a comment with your April totals. Also, be sure to double-check your totals on the Project page, and make sure I haven’t lost a number or missed anything. Sometimes that happens to me!
I hope you have a wonderful and productive May!
