August 350 Blocks Report

Posted on August 31, 2014 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

I can’t believe August is already over!

Can you tell I’ve been busy? I’ve hardly blogged at all . . .

And it certainly hasn’t been that I’ve been working on my own quilts much at all, either.

I made a whoppin’ NINE blocks this month — that’s it. But it did break me over the 300 mark, finally. Some months are just slow goin’.

One of my blocks was for the block exchange at guild, and I forgot to take a picture of it. The other 8 are for a quilt I’ll be showing you real soon. I’ve been doing a lot of writing, which means lots of good things should come out of the hopper real soon . . .

One of the things I have been doing when I get the chance is playing in this pile of bright scrappy goodness right here:


The real truth is, I’ve been working on my studio remodel, which I’ll be showing you soon, I hope, and in between, I’ve been trying to keep up with quilting for other people. It’s tough, and as usual, I’m behind on everything.

How about you? Have you been busy, too? Busy with Quilting? Or busy with all the other stuff, like me?

It’s time to report in and let everyone know what you’ve been up to. I hope you’ve been getting more sewing time than I have. Leave us a comment, or a link, or email me and let me know. I’ll get the page updated as I can.

The new goal is set for September — we’re on the downhill slide now, and it’s picking up speed! For September, we’ll do 30 more blocks, for a year-to-date total of 260.

And since I never drew a July prize winner yet, here’s the July winner:

Cathy P.

Woohoo! Cathy is up to 444 blocks so far — well over the 350, but I’m anxious to see just how many she ends up with — I know she’s been working on stuff!

Wishing you all happy September stitching!

    Finished the lap quilts for the cancer center. 3 in all. don’t know how to count jelly roll quilts so I won’t. 2 of them. I did 1 twin for an oncology patient. That is 10 blocks wide and 17 blocks long. They are 4 1/2 inch blocks. 170? I think. But that is part of July and August. Now working on things I want to try. Hexies. I’ve cut out 3500. Yup 3500 over 3 weeks.. So maybe I won’t do an actual quilt for a while. I am just enjoying doing the hexagons. 2 1/2″.. Good work you all..

    I only made 40 blocks this month, but I’m happy I’m still meeting the monthly goal. I look forward to seeing pictures of your studio when the remodel is finished. My sewing room looks like an explosion hit it, so it will be nice to get some inspiration.

  12. Karen says:

    I made 15 blocks in August. It was a busy month with canning and the start of school. I am working on a new quilt and it will have 100 blocks so I better get busy and start sewing to be able to add them to my September total.

    I got 46 this month for a total of 223. Not as many as I hoped for, but my most for the year so far. And I started off September right by completing another spool block this morning. Thanks for the encouragement.

  18. Judy says:

    Only 26 total blocks this month, but another top quilted and a guild challenge started. I also made five Dear Jane blocks last week, which took a couple of hours each. Block A-9 has 43 pieces.
    I am anxious to see the big reveal of your sewing space.

    Add 28 to my total. I’ve been sewing daily, but most of my projects are beyond the block stage right now. Fun times, no matter what the stage.

  24. I made 28 blocks in August. Not a big month for me, but I did get two quilt tops together with borders.

  25. Susan says:

    I finished 5 applique blocks which are more like two blocks each. I might finally have a chance to sew some more.

  26. Jane B says:

    I only finished 9 blocks in August. I finished the quilt as well for a wedding gift, my third finished quilt this year. Now I need to finish my Celtic Soltice before Bonnie Hunter starts the new mystery in November. 🙂
