Time to report in on blocks you made in August!
August was a busy month for me, so I know it was for a lot of you as well. (September promises to be even busier!)
And in spite of myself, I managed to make 15 blocks. I fell one short of the August goal, with a grand total of 229. No worries — I can catch up!
Here’s what a few of them were . . .
I made these two tiny blocks from trimmings left over from making scrappy binding for a quilt. I can’t bear to throw anything away — it’s a bit of a sickness, really — but still, it makes me happy that these pieces that might have ended up in the trash will now be in a quilt instead.
I made this block for my friend, Jean, in our guild. She asked for a black and white star with any color background. I chose the Brasstown Star block pattern from Quilter’s Cache to make this one.
And then I used the trimmings from that block to make these little blocks for my HST scrap quilt I have in progress:
I also made the rest of the blocks for some quilts I’ll show you tomorrow, and one block to contribute to a Quilt of Valor that Norma from guild is coordinating. A fairly productive month — now if I could just have a few more of those!
How did you do?
Leave me a comment or contact me with your updated totals. We’re fast closing in on the end of 2015 — can you believe how fast it’s approaching?
I’ve updated the Project page with all the current participant totals, and the new goal for this month. Another 30 blocks for a year-to-date total of 260 by the end of September. Some of you have already gotten there, so I know the rest of us can do it.
The July prize winner is: Julie S.
Have a wonderful stitchy month — I have a lot to get done, so I hope to have plenty to show for September’s report — I hope all of you will, too!
