April 350 Blocks Report

Posted on April 30, 2014 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

Well, I certainly hope you all did better this month than I did!350button14

I knew a slow month would hit me sooner or later, and this was one of them.

I only completed 4 blocks this month . . .

Four more blocks for my Ferris Wheel quilt that I also worked on last month:FerrisWheel

That makes my total number of blocks for the year: 185. But since our goal so far is only 110, I’m still ahead. However, if I have many more months like this one, I won’t be for long!

How did you all do?

It’s time to comment or contact me to let me know your updated totals for April.

Our new goal for May is 140. I’ve updated the Project page to reflect that, and as your totals come in, I’ll get them posted there as well. I hope your stitching is going well!

If you have any pictures posted on your own blogs, be sure and leave us a link so we can go look at what you’ve been up to — I love seeing pictures of everyone’s works in progress!

It’s never too late to join in — we’re up to 68 participants this year! You can read about how the project works by clicking HERE. I hope you’ll consider joining us. There are monthly prizes, and we’ll have grand prizes at the end of the year as well.

Happy stitching!

    I pieced a t-shirt quilt, so I don’t know how to count that one. I also completed 17 more 9-patch in a star blocks. All the 9-patches were finished, but I don’t remember how many I had already counted. So I guess just put me down for 17.

    • Cathy Poyner says:

      Add 42 more, as I forgot about a nickel and dime quilt. I also finished a rick-rack 9-patch, but I don’t remember how many 9-patches I made this month.

    April Total = 41, but I have 130 for the year, so far.

    I just recently joined this fun project, April 28.. I think my total for the year thus far was 115. I have added four more 12 inch blocks as I am doing a sampler quilt for my niece. I don’t know how many I have done for the month of April. But I guess 4 is my number.. I will be able to track the upcoming months better.. 🙂 Thank you.. BTW I love your Ranch Animal Diaries…

    65 for April.

    Put me down for 24 this month. Three of those were large table runners that I counted as one block each. I didn’t concentrate on the 9-patch stars for the guild challenge……….which would have given me another 12. That is one big quilt, however, and it will all have to be set together. So won’t get much to count in May either.

    Which is what I did mostly this month. Set together the Edina Raffle quilt last Monday. With help from my friend Kay and also Anita and Barbara from Edina.

    I got 41 done this month–32 block a day stars, 7 spools, and the 2 tell it to the stars blocks.

  7. Bari says:

    By the skin of my teeth I finished up 30 9-patch blocks today. That makes my total for the year 177. Fortunately, I still have some move 9-patch blocks to make so those will be good for part of May’s goal.

    I love your Ferris Wheel blocks! Beautiful!

    I feel really ashamed this month I only completed 2 block for the month of April. But I for see many more blocks next month, my husband bought me a new sewing machine last week when we went to Paducah.. Can’t wait for it to get here this week. When I get it I will post pictures on my blog. here’s the link to my project page to see my 2 blocks. http://ucanquilt2.blogspot.com/p/the-350-blocks-project-2014.html

    Sorry, but I didn’t get any done this month 🙁 Just can’t seem to find the time or desire to do any these days. Hoping May will be better.

  11. Sue Hook says:

    Although I was busy sewing all month – I only made 18 blocks. Hopefully, I will get to sew more blocks in May and less other items, but when the daughter-in-law says Mavis needs some pants – Mimi fires up the sewing machine and out comes 4 new pairs of pants. Also made a purse for my other daughter-in-laws birthday and a few baby shower items.

  12. Judy says:

    I had 56 blocks for April. They sure add up fast when you’re counting. It makes me feel like I’m accomplishing a lot. Thanks for the opportunity to participate.

  13. Andrea says:

    Put me down for 66 blocks for April.

    A whole whopping 18…no snow days = very few sew days I am afraid!

  15. Jane B says:

    I only got 24 blocks done in April. I did get my Quilt of Valor top finished with borders and also quilted a wallhanging with crumb pieced heart on it. I am still stitching down the binding. It was a good sewing month I think, even though not too many blocks got done.

  16. Barbara D says:

    I finally counted up my blocks. Since I haven’t reported I just counted everything since January. I have made 254 blocks including January. Whew!

  17. Sherrie says:

    Hi Shelly,
    I got 38 blocks done this month. I’ve never actually kept track of how many blocks I do, so this was an eye opener for me. I’ve posted at my place about this and I have pictures too. My count for April is 38. Have a great day!

    Mine was a rather slow month as well. i made 3 fabric postcards . http://www.heatherpearson.com/2014/05/needlework-tuesday-mellow-time-in-studio.html

    I did finish 3 other projects, so I am happy with my progress. There is always the next month to do better.

  20. Deanna says:

    Slow reporting more slow sewing. Sixteen blocks for me in April, but May is looking much more promising.

  21. Kathy Garringer says:
