Wow! That was fast! Do I say that every January?
We only had to make 14 blocks this month, and all I managed was 3. I thought I had more time!
I’m trying to get caught up on all my Bee and Guild Exchange blocks. After these three, I only have one left to make, so my plan is working!
Here’s a Scrappy Churn Dash I made for Shirley:
A star block that will go into a Quilt of Valor that Holly is making:
And the last block for my Sew Sisters Bee — this one is for Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts. I think you can still get this pattern from her site or from Craftsy maybe. It’s foundation paper pieced.
So, really, I wanna hear how you all have gotten your year started! Did you make lots of blocks? Our weather has kept me in a lot, but my numbers don’t reflect that, for whatever reason. Maybe you’ve done better than me.
I’ve got the Project Page all ready to go. If you’ve told me you’re joining in, but you don’t find yourself on the list, please let me know. I don’t want to accidentally leave anyone out.
Our block goal for February is 24. That’s not even one a day, so surely we can do that, right? And if you need to play catch-up, like me, our year-to-date total so far is still only 38. No hill for a stepper! But remember, it’s not a race or a contest, so you are completely free to work at your own pace. I know some blocks are more involved than others (it’s why I’m tempted to make a bunch of 9-patches this month — haha!)
So it’s time for you to report in your January totals. You can leave a comment on this post (if Captcha will let you — uff!), or contact me to let me know.
