May 350 Blocks Report

Posted on May 31, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

Did I mention I’ve been traveling for the past month?

So . . . yeah, I didn’t accomplish much sewing. All the blocks I got done were for Quilt Market samples, and two of those quilts I didn’t even get pictures of, I was in such a hurry to ship them off. So my monthly total of blocks was 28, in spite of myself. I hope to do much better for June.

But I knitted a scarf!

And part of a dishcloth!

I really need to get back in gear . . .

How did you do in May?

It’s time to report in and let me know your new totals. Just leave a comment on this post and let us all know how you’re doing.

I finally got the page updated with last month’s totals, and our new goal for June, which is 38 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 187. So many of you are already there, you can just cruise . . .

Some of you, like me, are hoping for a better month this time!

The prize winner for April is Leslie! She made it to 101 blocks in April! Woohoo!

I’m hoping we all have stellar numbers to report by the end of June, and if you have stellar numbers to report right now, that’s even better!

    I moved on May 14th, so I only finished 12 blocks for the month of May. Hopefully I will be more productive in June. đŸ™‚

  4. I made a whopping total of two blocks in May. Doing LOTS of quilting on my Westerning Woman Quilt. Body done and I’m on the border…trying to beat the 100 day challenge.

  5. Maxine E. says:

    Only 62 Blocks this month. Had company for the first two weeks of May. I finished my Storm at Sea quilt. YAY! Caught up on the Sewcial Bee Sampler. I have started again on my commission quilt which needs to be completed by December.

  8. Sheryl says:

    I only had 16 in May

  9. Louise says:

    I made 138 blocks this month. I spent more time piecing this month than last. But, that means that next month I will spend more time quilting and less time piecing.

  10. denniele says:

    43 blocks this month! Better than last month! Sounds like you need a few days of rest! I know…what is that, right???

  11. Diana says:

    I ended up with 110 for the month of May. 63 more bowties and then 47 blocks for Arkansas Crossroads scrap quilt. Have been making a lot of 2 1/2 inch red white HSTS for a swap. And tryihg to put more stuff away. Been cutting more 2 1/2 squares for another scrap quilt. Should say for many more scrap quilts. The one i just made uses 404 squares. Did not make a real dent in the scrap bin!!!!! I bought enough wide backing the other day for another one the same size.

  12. Danice says:

    Made 51 blocks in May. ‘Wanted to do more, but life got in the way, lol.

  13. Janet V says:

    I made 133 blocks

  14. Arlena Hickman says:

    I’m sorry to say that I only got 5 block for May. I did finish setting together 2 quilts that had been laying round for 2 years.

  15. Beverly V. says:

    54 blocks this month. It has been one of the best for quilting, but now things will slow down as we are starting a remodeling project.

  16. Mary Hughes says:

    I did 60 blocks for may

  17. Sherry V. says:

    I did 6 blocks done this month. They were all for swaps.

    I am in awe of those that get so many blocks done. Perhaps when I retire there will be larger numbers.

  18. Cynthia says:

    My total for May was 28 blocks.
    Pop over if you would like to see what I have been working on.

  19. Darlene says:

    21 blocks for me. I have been doing what seems to be endless piecing when will all these parts become blocks!! I have also been working on a few baby sweaters for new grand baby due to arrive mid July

  20. Beth F says:

    I assembled 12 blocks this month! With my 75 from earlier in the year, I sooo close to 100!
    I’ve been putting together my Splendid Sampler quilts (5 smalls instead of 1 huge), assembling a gift quilt that never seems to end but just this week started finishing actual blocks, and started working at my favorite Nursery/Greenhouse this month.
    And I just bought another sewing machine that allows me to free-motion quilt, so I’ve been practicing before I quilt the 8 quilts I have sandwiched. Whew! Time to get productive!

  21. Crystal says:

    My count is 96 Quilt of Valor blocks.

    One of those blocks was Florence Flamingo, she is about 18 x 27 — a BIG block!! She is going on the back of my Exotic Tropical Flower Garden. She was so much fun to make, I have been debating on piecing her sister, Flossie to join her.

  23. Kathy says:

    I’m on sabbitacle. No crafts at all. I am gardening and enjoying our summer place. Doing some reading and just relaxing. But I did do 8 blocks the beginning of May.

  24. katie z. says:

    178 new blocks for a total of 541. I might have had a little stress relief sewing lately!

  25. KT says:

    96 blocks for me–a record for me! Most of them were easy blocks for a quilt that needs to be done soon–nothing like a short deadline to get you sewing!!

  26. Linda Knight says:

    I made 4 blocks in May but got a quilt on the frame to quilt which I will do when I get a batting for it.

  27. Betty K says:

    I did 67 blocks for May, but 35 were crumb blocks. Been one of those months of weird stuff besides lots of internet problems. Crossing my fingers but I think it has been finally fixed after 2 trips from the internet company.

  28. Susan Nixon says:

    43 blocks in May, up from some very low months. Total is 113, so far behind! That’s okay. It’s better than none. =) And so is your total for May.

  29. Stephanie says:

    I have been working more on assembling and quilting this month. But I still managed a set of 24 Heartstrings blocks and a row quilt made from 99 squares, which is figure is about the same as stitching them into 11x 9patches.
    So = 35 blocks for May.

  30. Amber says:

    I got 94 done in May.

    My YTD total is 236. đŸ™‚

  31. Meloney says:

    I made 223 blocks in all the quilts I finished in May. It was a great month for completions. I used 50 yards of material too. That is a win win.
    I hope June is half that good.

  32. Leslie says:

    Winner? My total blocks for the year is 101.
    We left on our road trip May 11, I did get some cutting done for my blocks but ZERO sewn together. I packed my sewing machine but there it has stayed, sleeping I hope, not pouting.

  33. JanetD says:

    Finished 75 blocks in May. It’s been a much better year for sewing but only because I committed to samples for the LQS. Nothing like a little pressure to get stuff done. I haven’t touched knitting needles in ages, but making wash/dish cloths is pretty gratifying.

  34. Rose Marie says:

    I did 34 blocks this month…………..and also was instrumental in putting on a great quilt show!! Want to put up a Quilt Show of the Month report?? LOL

  35. Pam Martin says:

    I completed no blocks in May. I did bind 2 quilts and applique on another one, but no blocks were completed. I also had the pleasure of having my grandsons for a week.

    I’ll do better next month.

  36. Andrea O'Brien says:

    I had a slow month for sewing. I only managed 7 blocks last month!

  37. Kathi Benchley says:

    I only managed to get 20 blocks done in May. Was a very busy month!

  38. Carolyn S. says:

    My block total for May is 213. Thanks!

  39. Judy Smith says:

    I had 35 blocks in May. I can’t believe the year will soon be half over.

  40. Patty H. says:

    I got 52 blocks done WooHoo

  41. Susan says:

    I think I have a total of 1 for May, but June is looking much more promising.

  42. Marsha Yahl says:

    Sorry, I’m late reporting. Only 4 blocks for May. Still setting together quilts and quilting for my sisters.

  43. I made a whopping 19 blocks in May, mostly because I’m making very time consuming blocks…but better than April. Hoping to catch up this month.
