January is always the easy month. Since we don’t really get the Project officially kicked off until mid-month, we can sort of just ease into the block making every year, and I sure needed that this year. And our goal was only 15 blocks.
And guess what? I still didn’t make the goal!
If not for practicing ahead of time to see how my trackers will go next month, I wouldn’t even have gotten as much done as I did!
I made 12 blocks this past month. Nine of them were for a commission quilt I can’t show you just yet, and I made 3 of these:
If you missed my earlier post about these Snowball blocks, you can read it and get all the details HERE.
And instead of counting each Snowball as an individual block, I’m counting each set of four as one block. They’re so easy, it just feels like cheating if I count them individually, altho if you choose to count yours that way, it’s perfectly fine. We’re on the honor system for this Project!
How did you do in January? It’s time to report in with your totals. If you don’t see your name on the list just yet, give me time — I’m a bit late getting the Project page updated, but computer time has been brief because of my current deadlines. Three more rush quilts to go, then I can get back to my normal schedule (she says, while not really believing it her ownself).
I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on, so leave a comment with your numbers (or contact me), and I’ll try to get the page updated over the weekend.
Our new block goal for February is 29 blocks, since I’m going with the block-a-day theme this year. That means we need to have a total of 44 by month’s end.
(And for those of you waiting on prizes . . . no, I haven’t sent them out yet, because . . . deadlines! I’m hoping to do some catching up over the next few days. Thanks for being patient with me.)
If you’re on the fence about joining in, it’s not too late. You can join in anytime throughout the year. Get all the details HERE.
We have an extra day in February to get more done, and my own personal 2020 is starting over tomorrow, so I hope to be way more productive. Here’s to all of us having a productive February! Happy Stitching!
