Well, as I said yesterday, I have sewed my little heart out this month. Short month, but I fit as much into it as I possibly could.
We had a severe cold snap, and I found that if I kept working, kept moving, and stayed busy, I stayed warmer, and it kept my mind off it — haha!
I was also cleaning, as mentioned yesterday, and finding lots of things to work on. One quilt top I found only needed one side border added — what strange turn of events caused me to stop at that point? I can’t remember, but it’s ridiculous!
I also came across stacks of previously-made blocks that only need to be set together. Some had already had the setting started. So I have finished three more quilt tops, and am working on three more to finish setting them together.
And I made 127 blocks this month!
I made 37 9-patch blocks. Here are a few of them:
I made one guild exchange block, a signature block for our champion block maker, Christopher, two Dresden Plate blocks, and a heart block for Deanna for her daughter’s wedding quilt:
I also drug out this project because I finally came up with a plan for what I want to do with it. Also, it’s taking up THREE drawers in my rolling cart, so it’s time to get it put together and out of my way. I made 16 more blocks for it:
And while working with those tiny triangles, it spawned an entire ‘nother new project, and I made a couple test blocks for that one. I’ll show it to you once I get going good.
And I picked up where I left off a long time ago on hand piecing my Daredevils blocks. I finished Block 5:
Like I said, a busy, busy month! It feels good to have some things finished, and lots more things organized and moving along. I can only hope March is as productive!
Now to re-clean my cutting table!
How did YOU do? Did you find lots of stitching time in February?
It’s time to report in with your totals and let us know what you’re working on. I have the Project Page updated with what I know up to this point.
Our new block goal for March is 31 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 75 blocks.
Our January prize winner is Wanda, who was up to 16 blocks at the end of last month. Right on goal!
I hope you all have a wonderfully stitchy March!
