I sure hope your August was more productive than mine for block making.
I have a big, fat ZERO for this month to add to my total. I kinda knew this would happen. I’ve mostly been at the longarm or pattern writing. That doesn’t leave much piecing time.
I hope to do much better than that in the coming month.
I’ve been working on getting the new Block-of-the-Month quilts ready for Sew Sweet Quilt Shop’s “It Takes Five!” program for this year. It starts on September 9th. I’ll give you a peek at the traditional version of the quilt for this year, and I’ll be back in a few days to tell you all about it, plus the modern version of it as well.
(You can get all the information for signing up for this BOM by calling the shop at 660.548.3056 to reserve your spot, or check out the details on their Instagram post HERE. HINT: There are lots of freebie options being offered all throughout this year’s program, and you’ll only get them if you’re signed up!)
So . . . now it’s your turn, and I hope you have a much better report than I do!
How many blocks did you make this month?
Our random number of blocks to complete for September is 42, for a year-to-date total of 274 by the end of September. That way, we can take it a bit easier heading into the holidays. (Did I just say holidays? Eek!) Check out The Project Page to see all the info.
Our prize winner for July is KT, who is already up to 331 blocks, so she can just kick back this month and relax!
Just leave a comment or email me and let me know your new totals (or if I have any errors in the totals you’ve already reported), and have a wonderful stitchy September!
