I was right — October was over before I could even blink! Wow!
Only 2 more months to make blocks this year. I’d best get crackin’!
I managed to add 34 to my total this month. I’d have never guessed I got that much done, given that I spent so much time sewing for other people in October.
I made my monthly exchange block for guild, then forgot to take a picture of it.
I made 26 blocks/sections for a quilt I’ll be showing you soon.
And I made 7 of these terrifically scrappy 9-patches. Here’s 4 of them:
How did you all do? The totals really came pouring in last month, so I know some of you have been really busy!
In the last few weeks, while our weather has been so gorgeous, I’ve been trapped inside meeting deadlines. And now, when I have whittled those deadlines down to just a few, and have a chance for a little breather, it’s getting too cold to get outside and do much more before this winter hits. I’m hoping for a few good days to accomplish some outdoor winterizing yet. But we had to break down and turn the furnace on yesterday, because it got down to 24 degrees last night. That sort of weather will sure keep me inside — maybe I’ll get even more quilting done! How about you?
November’s block goal is once again 30 blocks, for a yearly total of 320. Lots of you have already passed that, and it’s now down to simply seeing how many you can actually get done for the entire year — I always like to see if I can beat my previous year’s goal.
I’ve updated the Project page, and now it’s your turn to leave a comment and let me know how your October went! Were you out enjoying the fall weather, and doing your winter preparations, or did you get lots of time at your sewing machine? Or both? That would be divine.
I didn’t even take time to draw for a September prize winner, so I’ll announce that now. It is:
Congratulations, Pattilou! I’ll get your prize right out to you. I can tell you need more fabric, right?
Have a wonderful quilty month of November!
