Seriously?! It’s February 1st already?!
Can you believe it’s already time to check in with our first reports for this year?
Have you been sewing???
I was doing pretty good, then I got caught up in a few deadlines, and that has slowed me down again.
I’ve been trying to get caught up on all the various quilting bee and exchange blocks I’m behind on. I made three for Sandra at guild. This one is just a large 9-patch that she asked for:
And these two are Half Log Cabins made with large pieces:
I finished my daughter’s Spiked Punch quilt top, so I’m counting the rest of the columns as 3 more “blocks”:
And I made this little quilt top that I’m calling 5 blocks (each column as a block):
I made two other quilts that weren’t really in blocks, so I’ll just call those 1 “block” each, and I’ll show them to you next week. (I’m saving my bindings for Super Bowl Sunday, in case we find someplace to watch the game, since we don’t own a TV!)
Everything else I’ve worked on has simply been units for upcoming blocks, or borders, or bindings, or setting things together, all things I can’t count. So that makes my total 12. Just 12? It felt like I was busier than that!
What about you? Did you get a good start on the year’s block count? Did you do better than me, and at least get to 27? If not, don’t worry — we still have 11 more months! (Which will fly by, I’m sure!)
February’s block goal is 35. That gives us a year-to-date total to shoot for of 62. I’ve got some catching up to do already!
So please leave a comment and let us all know how you did this month, and I’ll get the numbers updated on the Project page in a day or so. Remember, everyone that reports in with a January total is eligible for the January prize drawing, and I’ll announce that winner in the February block report post.
Happy stitching . . . Make lots of blocks!
