Well, that’s a wrap! The first half of 2016 is over. Already!
We, as a group, are doing fantastic on block making! I’m really proud of us.
Here’s a little of what I got done this past month. I ended up with a total of 165 blocks for June.
I made this little tiny thing from trimmings. It’ll get added into the scrap quilt I’m making with other such tiny units.
I made a block for the group quilt that my art quilting group is doing, but I don’t think I’m allowed to show it just yet.
I made this stack of 142 blocks for a project I’ll be telling you about next week:
I made this small quilt top from some Mostly Manor stripes fabric. It looked way better in my head. I’m not loving the gray so much. But when I chose that gray, I had prison on my mind — it’s a long story! You probably shouldn’t ask.
I finished up this little community service wheelchair quilt top. I’m counting it as 20 blocks, since I made big 4-patches and sewed them together.
Can you see that I just added several more quilts to my to-be-quilted pile? Uff!
One consolation is that I can use up some yardage I have laying around to make backings for all these, and that will help, right?
Now it’s your turn! How’d you do in June?
I’m anxious to hear what you’ve been working on, and add to our totals.
Leave a comment or contact me to let me know how many you did this month.
For July, I’m adding another 30 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 200. Since the year is half over, we have to get past the halfway mark for our blocks, too.
The prize winner for May is Amber, who has 129 blocks so far! Woohoo!
Be sure and check out the Project Page to see how everyone is doing, and have a great block-making July!
