May 350 Blocks Report

Posted on June 1, 2016 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

I traveled a lot during the month of May, and when I wasn’t traveling, I was either at the longarm working on customer quilts or getting ready for the travels so I knew this month would not be a good one for me getting many blocks done.

And I was right: ZERO is my total for this month.

I hope you all did better than me!

In fact, I didn’t even get time to update the Project page after the initial update I did at the beginning of the month, so hopefully I have that done now. Please double check your totals and make sure I have yours correct — my inbox got a little out of control this month, too, so I don’t want to have missed anything.

And here we are ready for the last month in the first half of the year already — how did that happen?

Our total for June is another 30 blocks, altho I truly feel like saying, “Make lots of blocks — make as many as you can — 100 is good!” Our year-to-date total is 170 blocks. So many of you are way past that, and I’m really anxious to see how many we can make as a group this year!

I’m certainly hoping that I can contribute to that total a little better in June that I did in May (which won’t take much)!

The winner of the April prize package is: Bec. At the end of April, she was already up to 507 blocks. Woohoo!

So report in your totals and we’ll keep moving forward, making blocks. I love how some of you just report in anyway and don’t wait for me, since I’m not always the best at staying on top of things!

    May was not as productive as I would have liked. We did a bit of travelling and then we had some health issues with our pets.

    But, I was able to get 6 blocks done.

    And, since 5 of them were for a long time UFO and used paper piecing I am happy to say that I can finally think about getting the top together! YAY!

  2. randy says:

    well if we can count individual art quilts as one block I did 8.

  3. Bobbi says:

    You’re in good company. I also completed zero blocks in May. Things are looking up for June, though. I’m excited for my total to finally start climbing.

    I am doing a pot holder quilt. I have 40 done so far and 60 to go. Love doing this block. This quilt is from the civil war. It originated in New England during the civil war. From what I am told it was mainly in Maine then spread out from there. Anyway My hubby is doing some also. Can’t wait to get it together.
    As a matter of fact I am teaching a class on the Pot Holder quilt the end of October.
    And yes I am occasionally still working on my king hexagon quilt. That one will take forever.
    My garden is finally all planted. Everything is coming up and I am pleased with what I see. Now I have 2 trees to plant a Mac apple and a Peach, and 2 blueberry high bushes to plant. Hopefully tomorrow. Then maybe, maybe? I can sit back and enjoy our new porch we just built onto the front of the house. It over looks the flower beds and the bird feeders etc.

    I got a whopping 2 blocks done in May. Which gives me 309 thus far this year.

  10. Put me down for 44 blocks. For me, that is a good total. Good luck to both of us doing some more in June. It will be a busy month for me with 2 sets of out-of-state company coming.

    25 blocks for me this month. It rained for most of the month here in Northern Virginia! It made me lazy and not want to do anything … but I am getting my groove back and finishing up a quilt for my niece. Hopefully more for June.. although, I am scheduled for Jury Duty.. 🙁 Hoping they won’t pick me.. keep your fingers crossed! I don’t mind being a juror, it’s the drive to the court house.. DC traffic is not fun at all..

    May was a busy month here…total blocks 16!

  23. Stephanie says:

    I spent the month quilting/binding, finishing up 7 quilts, therefore had almost made Zero blocks for May.
    However, I managed to make block 5 for Westering Women on the last day of May, looked back over my list and noticed that I hadn’t reported block 1, so I guess I can say 2 blocks instead of zero.
    Block 2,3 and 4 of WW remain untouched oops.
    Total so far of 459 for the year.

  24. Leah G. says:

    managed 28 small blocks 4 large ones. Not bad.
    Oh, forgot the Westering Women block. So that will be 33.

  25. Deanna says:

    A surprisingly productive May, all things considered. I am working on the Splendid Sampler and the Temecula Quilt Company Circa 2016 quilt. Those blocks helped out a lot. My total for the month is 32 bringing me to 192 for the year so far. Thanks for the encouragement.

  26. Patricia Hotz says:

    I got 64 blocks made which I didn’t even sew any till the last week of May. And I turned those blocks into 2 quilt tops. woohoo I did more than I thought I would. Patty

  27. Sophie says:

    It wasn’t a very good month for me either … I made 14 blocks in May. https://sophiejunction.blogspot.com/2016/06/counting-block-mays-sad-effort.html

  28. Jo says:

    I had 2 weeks off work ( hubby still had to work so it was like a mini retreat every day, heavenly) so was super productive this month with 192 blocks. I also made 30 blocks in April which I don’t think got added. My new total is 383.

  29. Susan says:

    Lots of blocks are being made, and I know you’ll get more done since you are home this month. Hard to sew and travel at the same time, unless you are doing it in an RV. =)

  30. KT says:

    I made 43 blocks in May–no idea what that brings my total to, but I’m feeling pretty good about what I’m getting done.

  33. Sue Hook says:

    My count for the month 191. Good thing I made three flannel blankets or I would of had one.

  34. Jackie Hale says:

    Nada. Zip. Zilch. None for the month of May.

  35. Pam says:

    I made 75 blocks for May. 56 for a graduation quilt, 16 for a small table topper and 3 odd blocks.

    62 – January
    72 – February
    22 – March
    50 – April
    75 – May

    9 blocks for a wall hanging for my new laundry room and 3 butterfly trial blocks for a table runner that will be a housewarming gift. That is a total of:

    12 blocks for May

  37. Linda Knight says:

    I did 11 blocks but in the process I finished making all the blocks needed for the paper pieced quilt I am making. I still have a pieced border to make but am taking paper out of the blocks after I have the rows sewed together. That is more time consuming than sewing the paper in was.

  38. Hi Shelly,
