Here we are with another month in our past. They seem to fly faster and faster all the time. We’ve gotten into some cooler temps finally, and had some rain, so things are a bit more tolerable around here weather-wise.
I had a busy month, and due to a retreat early in the month, I got lots of blocks made!
Of the 146 blocks I finished, 144 of them were for a quilt I’ll be showing you tomorrow, so check back.
One of the blocks was this star block I made for a group quilt being organized by fellow guild member, Bev. It’s made from a Cake Mix sheet, but I can’t tell you which one, because I only had 2 papers, and I didn’t pay that much attention!
At the retreat I mentioned above, my friend, Shirley, was cutting out a quilt from Daewabo taupes, and she was about to throw away all her scraps, and I told her NOOooooo! I wanted them! Strings!
So in between sewing other things at the retreat, I whipped up this improv Log Cabin block.
I’ll be making more of them until the strings are gone, so it won’t be a large quilt, but it’ll be interesting!
Now it’s your turn! How did you do this month?
Leave a comment or contact me and let me know your new totals.
I’ve got the Project page updated with the current numbers as I know them, and our new goal for October is 39 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 301.
The prize winner for August is Linda K., who has completed 150 blocks so far this year! Yay!
I hope you get lots of stitching time in October. I’m looking forward to lots of time with my sewing machine, and some more beautiful weather!
