Was your March a busy month? Mine sure was. I’m ready for April, which might actually end up being busier than March!
Did you make lots of blocks? I had another good month with 99 more to add to my total.
I made the 9 large blocks for this quilt, which you can read more about HERE:
And I made one for myself to keep:
It’s funny, Amanda and I were both late making and sending our blocks to each other, and without ever discussing it, we both sent our blocks, and on the exact same day we received each other’s blocks! What coincidental timing! We had a good chuckle over it.
I got all ready to put my Whistle Stop quilt top together, and was one block short, so I made one final block for that quilt, and used the leftovers from that quilt to make 48 Log Cabin blocks from homespun. I’ll show you both of those quilts later on.
I finished my Sampler Shuffle quilt top, which I’ll also show you a bit later, and made this fun Hashtag block for a guild exchange:
I’m busy working on some t-shirt quilts for a customer, and I’m counting 12 blocks toward those so far, and naturally, the rest I can’t show you just yet.
But enough about mine, anyway. How did you do?
It’s time to report in and update your totals. We are a group to be reckoned with so far this year — so many blocks are getting made! I have a sneaking suspicion that we’re ahead of last year, altho I never tally up till the end of the year, because I like to be surprised with our numbers.
And we made it past the 100-participant mark, too — woohoo! We’re at 103!
It’s a lot to keep track of, so I’m trying to keep the Project Page updated more often. Do be sure and let me know if your total doesn’t look right. Someone’s gotta keep me in line!
The winner of the prize drawing for February is: Sherry V.!
We’re adding another 30 blocks to our goal for April, for a yearly total of 110 so far. Some of you are so far past that, you can just kick back and watch for awhile, right? Wrong!!! Keep sewing! We need numbers! Have a good, fun, stitchy, quilty April!
