Was October a banner block-making month for you?
It finally was for me — I made a lot of blocks this month!
I made 20 blocks for this quilt, which is an alternate version of the Happily Ever After quilt from my book, “A Simple Life: Quilts Inspired by the ’50s”.
And I made 180 blocks for this quilt, which is my newest pattern. You can read more about this quilt, (and get the pattern) by reading this post HERE.
I also made 36 blocks that you will only get to see if you’re signed up for Sew Sweet Samplers BOM through the “It Takes Five!” program at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop, so I won’t be showing those here, but I’m adding them to my count.
So that makes a total of 236 blocks for me this month — woohoo! Don’t know if I can do that again before the end of the year, but every block helps our group count get bigger, so I’ll keep trying!
How did YOU do?
It’s time to report in with your totals for this month. I’m in Houston for Quilt Festival the rest of this week, so it’ll take me awhile to get the Project page updated, so bear with me.
For November, we’re making 27 blocks for a year-to-date total of 333 blocks.
Only two more months left in this year to make blocks, and I’m so excited to see if we can beat last year’s numbers!
Our prize winner for September is Katie Z., who has a total of 972 blocks so far!
Keep on stitching, and have a fabulous November!
