The 350 Blocks Project, August Report

Posted on September 1, 2013 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

I can hardly believe it’s already the first of September. Even as hot as it’s been, I’m not quite ready for summer to be over with. Even as much as I love September and October, I’m not quite ready for summer to be over with.

I have gotten quite a bit of sewing done, in spite of myself. This month I added 92 blocks to my total, which actually catches me up to speed — woohoo!

I made 4 more of these HST blocks. I have enough of them now that I’m starting to formulate a plan for them, but a quilt will be a long time coming yet.HST1

I made this block for a guild group project:GuildBlock

I made 4 blocks I can’t show you just yet. I made 80 blocks for this quilt top. This quilt is an adaptation of a quilt from the book “Singular Sensations”, by Barbara Douglas. I still need to add my borders and get it quilted, so I’ll show you a better picture of it later on.1blockquilt

I made 3 blocks for a quilt that I can’t show you until November. I also made 2 aprons, but those don’t count for blocks. So I’ve been busy!

How about you? Did you meet this month’s goal of completing 31 blocks? Have you reached the yearly goal of 229?

Leave a comment and let us all know how you’re doing. There are only 4 more months to get those blocks made! Some of you are already working on your second set of 350, and for that, I applaud you.

For September, we’re setting a goal of 30 more blocks, for a yearly total of 259. Think you can make it? I have the 350 Blocks Project page updated, so as you send in your totals, I’ll add them to the page.

The prize winners for July are as follows . . .

For meeting the goal of 198 blocks for July, the winner is: Diane

For participation, at whatever level, the winner is: Sandy (who is also right on track with 213 blocks)

Get those comments and totals posted, so you can be in the drawing for August’s prizes. Don’t forget, the end of the year will bring Grand Prizes, so get to stitching — you don’t want to miss out!

    I’m on my third set of 350, just to make up for an abysmal lack of sewing last year! Here’s to 759!

  2. Melissa Pagliai says:

    I completed 45 blocks in August. Hoping to get more than that done in September!

  3. Deanna says:

    I am at a snail’s pace with 24 for the month, but it is 297 for the year so far. YAY!

    Thanks, Shelly!

    My total for the year is 265, for August just 24 of them. This has really helped me see how much I do!

    I made 20 paper pieced blocks that are the beginning of a Cartwheel quilt and one paper-pieced goldfish block. Other than that I went to Colorado and worked a lot!! And went to guild meetings and sewed on a binding. I need a QTUW day!!!

    This was a busy month with several trips and getting ready for school to start. I have ZERO. This is my worst month. I hope that I can catch up in September.
