Today is the last day of 2015. It’s the last day to make any blocks for this year’s 350 Block totals.
How did you do this year?
About like you expected? Better? Worse?
I did worse than I expected. I think this may be the first year I didn’t get to 350. And while I actually made way more than 350 blocks, they weren’t for my own UFOs, and I don’t count those. I’m trying to make progress on my own projects with this, and I didn’t do as well as I had hoped. But I’ll be trying again next year!
Some of you did fantastic, and are even working on your 4th set of 350! That’s a lot of sewing.
This month, I added 6 more Sampler Shuffle blocks to my total:
I made 6 blocks for my Sew Sisters Bee member, René, and sent two of them to her, and kept 4 for my own quilt:
And I made 1 more block for Sew Sisters Bee member, Doris. I was trying to get all caught up on Bee stuff by the end of the year, but failed.
That brings my final total to 289 for the year. I didn’t even make it past 300! I’ll do better next year; I’m already planning for it.
How about you? It’s time to report in those final totals for the year. I’ll give you a few days to report in, as usual.
I’ll get the 350 Blocks Project page updated, and you be sure and check your numbers to make sure every block is accounted for.
The general consensus is that we want to do this again, so . . .
Sometime around January 11th, I’ll compile this year’s report, and award the prize packages. Then on January 15th, we’ll get started on the 2016 Block Project. I’m still debating changes I want to make, if any, so I still have a couple weeks to ruminate on that. Suggestions are still welcome.
Meanwhile, the November prize winner is Cindy S., who at the beginning of December, had 605 blocks made!
Report in those totals, and get ready for the next round! See you next year!
