Yeeeoooooooooooooowwwww! Another month done gone! (To paraphrase one of my favorite old songs by Bobby Bare: Marie Laveau)
How was your month? We still had mostly horrible weather, but did have a few good days. Oddly, the warmer it got outside, the colder I felt inside — I think winter got into my bones this time!
And in spite of having to spend a lot of time the last couple weeks out in the goat pen, I did manage to make 90 blocks this month, so that helped me get caught up.
There are little goat babies everywhere!
But when I managed to find sewing time, here’s some of what I worked on . . .
I made this block from my Summertime Sampler pattern. I’m doing another version all scrappy, and I’m loving it. I also made 4 other filler blocks for this third version of my quilt.
I made another Improv Herringbone block. I’m leader/endering these, and surprisingly, getting more done on it than I thought I would! I still need a lot more blocks to make my quilt as large as I want, tho.
And I finally get to count the 84 blocks (rows) for these two quilts:
These are my two versions of the Virginia’s Puzzle quilt, the free quilt-along that’s going on over at The Life of Hazel Ilene right now. It’s not too late to get in on it if you want — we just got rolling good. Go check it out, if you haven’t already.
So that was my month! How about you? Did you get lots of sewing time and make some blocks? It’s time to report in with your March totals. Just leave a comment below, or contact me.
I think I have the Project Page all updated. Our new block goal for April is 22. A smaller number this time, cos if you’re like me, and the weather is turning nice, you’re gonna wanna be outside more! This makes our year-to-date total 87.
And the prize winner for February is Clara! Clara is right on track with 66 blocks so far!
I’m wishing us all a wonderful April. (I can’t believe it’s April already!) I hope you get all the sewing time you want! Later this month, I’ll be in Paducah at the AQS show. I’m excited! It’ll be my first bit of travel this year, since I’ve been sticking really close to home for a few months.
