Well, that went fast! Do I say that every month?
Schools are back in session — it seemed weird to see the school bus go past the house after 5 months of not seeing it. Fall is getting closer. We’ve been having gorgeous weather. We are heading into my two favorite months of the year. I hope to get to slow down and enjoy them this year. With no fall Quilt Market, a lot of deadline work has been taken off my schedule — I feel so free! Until I remember that I still have plenty of deadlines as it is . . . and I’m really super behind. And there’s only 4 months left of this year.
I have a better block count this month, tho — I finally get to count all the blocks and sections I made for the Sew Sweet BOM quilts, Loretta’s Farm and Garden Samplers. You can see the quilts (and get info on signing up) HERE, if you missed them earlier. It starts September 12.
And then I made these two little scrappy nine-patch blocks:
I’m also making a lot of pinwheel blocks and some churn dashes, too, but I’m gonna hold off and count those all at once when I’m done, or I’ll lose track.
I had a total of 38 this month. How about you?
It’s time to report in and tell us all what you got done in August!
I have the Project page updated, so double check your totals and correct me if I’m wrong.
Our goal for September is another 30 blocks for a year-to-date total of 258. No hill for a stepper! Most of you are way on past that.
The July prize winner is Joan, who is up to 1628 blocks so far this year — Woohoo! That’s gonna help our group count, for sure!
I wish all of you a lovely September, and happy stitching!
