Were you too busy with summer to make as many blocks this month?
I actually did some better because I went to a retreat, and sewed like the wind.
I got 42 done to add to my total for this month.
One of them was this block, which is Block 6 of the Hazel’s Diary quilt, done in earth tones. It will be given to my sister for something she’s working on.
The other 41, I will show you in about a week, when I’ve had time to take good pictures of the projects they went into, so stay tuned for that. Here’s a teaser: It’s something you’ll wanna get in on, and you can, quite easily!
So how did you do? Did you manage 30 more blocks?
Or are you so far ahead of the game that you can slack for a month or two and still be all right?
It’s time to report in your totals, and let us all know how you did. As always, double-check me and make sure I have your numbers correct.
I’ve got the Project page all updated for August’s goal — we’re making yet another 30 blocks for a yearly total of 230.
The June prize winner is Terri G. She has a total of 161 blocks so far this year — woohoo!
I’ve had a couple of participants send in pictures of what they’ve been working on. Sue H. sent in a photo of her AmpersAnd quilt made from wildlife prints — a great guy quilt!
And Mary D. sent this picture of the most darling quilt she made for her granddaughter. Parts of this quilt are from a pattern by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet. It’s such a sweet quilt!
I know August is always a busy month: State Fair, local fairs, back-to-school, still garden to tend to, last-minute vacations before it’s too late, etc. Whatever you’re doing, have fun, be safe, and try to fit in a little stitching time when you can!
