I don’t know about the weather, but as far as sewing goes, March came in like a lamb and went out like a lion, for me!
I’ve been flung headfirst into what I call “Deadline Season” around here. It won’t end until June 1st, at which point, I believe I will need a nap!
This month, I’m counting 63 blocks made for myself.
I finished the applique on this one from “Women of Design”, but didn’t take a new picture:
I made an exchange block for guild (naturally using cowboy fabric):
I finished two more of my “Remembering Almo” blocks:
And I made a quilt for Moda’s Piece & Comfort challenge. I like to support my local quilt shop, and it benefits a good cause, so I really wanted to join in. My quilt will be given to a veteran on Veteran’s day this fall at a program our guild takes part in. And guess what? I didn’t take a single picture of it! But the shop will, and it will be hanging there for a while, so I’ll get a picture and show it to you at some point. It contained 59 blocks.
Now it’s your turn . . .
What did you get done this month?
Leave me a comment or contact me and tell me your totals. We’re all doing pretty darn good so far this year! Can you believe 1/4 of the year is already gone?
I’ve updated the page with the new totals for April. We’re now working toward a yearly total of 110 blocks. Some of you made it to that number in the first month!
As always, double check your numbers to make sure I’m correct. My computer has hiccuped a couple times, so I don’t want anyone’s hard work to get left out!
The prize winner for February is Linda Ko., who had a total of 157 blocks as of March 1st. Way to go!
With the weather warming up, I know a lot of you will be spending more time outdoors, so the quilting may slow down. Just remember to squeeze in some sewing time whenever you can! Have a wonderful, happy April!
