I’m not gonna say February flew by, because for us here on the ranch, it didn’t. It seemed to drag out forever. I’m not gonna blame it on the extra day, either! Maybe it was because we’re so ready for warmer weather, but it was still cold and nasty quite a bit of the time. Maybe it was because I still have my foot in a boot.
But because it seemed like February had about 50 days . . . I sewed a LOT! One of my trackers was to machine piece 1 hour a day, and I stuck with it really well. However, I was busy finishing things up, and setting things together, so there wasn’t much actual block making. I always say that at some point after making all these blocks, they need to be set together and quilted!
One of the blocks I made was hand pieced. This is my Block 4 from the Daredevils Quilt-Along by Barbara Brackman. Eight more to go.
And I made one extra block from a past guild challenge. I ended up with 11 blocks from the challenge itself, so I made one more to give myself an easy number to set together. These will turn into a Comfort Quilt for our guild’s stash to give away. The block pattern is called Dashing, and you can find it free HERE.
I also finished some other things I’m gonna show you in a future post soon, and while all the blocks for two of these quilts were finished, I made some extra filler bits, and I’m counting them as 12 more blocks. Six of the blocks were these easy little signature blocks that finish at 3 inches square.
So my total for February is 14, not quite halfway to the goal. But I’ll catch up.
How did you do?
The January prize winner is Maxine!
Our block goal for March is 31 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 75.
Spring may finally be on its way here, and I’m ready. I only have a few days left in my boot, and I have a lot more sewing planned. Happy stitching to us all in March!
