Well, how did you do this month?
September seemed really short to me.
Going to my guild’s retreat sure helped me out, and I managed to add 48 blocks to my total this month. At least I’m not falling any further behind for a change.
At this late date, I can’t afford to — there’s only 3 months left to get to 350! I’m still marveling at and applauding those of you who have already made it and are working on your second (or even third) set of 350 blocks for the year — way to go!
Here’s a sampling of some of mine from this month . . .
I made 5 blocks for a quilt I can’t show you just yet, 2 blocks for a community service quilt I forgot to take a picture of, and 16 blocks for a mystery quilt that was also a guild project. I’ll show it to you next week.
I made 20 more blocks for my Scrap Jar Stars quilt. It’s coming along nicely now, thanks to that big boost. The Scrap Jar Stars Quilt is a free tutorial offered up by Amber over at A Little Bit Biased. If you want the tutorial, click HERE. It’s a fun quilt to make! Amber has lots of other tutorials, too. I found this particular one thanks to my friend, Karin. Here’s just one of my blocks:
I made the top of this table runner, which I’m counting as one big block, and you can read all about it HERE and get the free pattern for it as well:
So now it’s your turn! Let us all know what you got accomplished this month. We were supposed to have made another 30 blocks, to get us up to a total of 259 for the year so far. Did you make it?
And here are the prize winners for August . . .
For meeting the goal of 229 blocks, the winner is: Kay
For simply participating, no matter how many you have done, it’s Charlotte.
Congratulations, ladies, and thanks for playing along! Now go get stitching! If October flies by as fast as September did, we’re gonna need all the time we can get!
