May 350 Block Report

“Our new goal for May is to make 46 blocks
for a year-to-date total of 149.

and our new goal for June, which is 38 blocks,
for a year-to-date total of 187.”
Prairie Moon Quilts

My total to date –
January 33 + February 34 + March 22 + April 12 + May 0 = 101

Yes, zero, I cut strips for my 30’s scrappy trip-around-the-world,
but nothing sewn together.

I don’t even have a new picture.
I love the way these blocks look.

We left Sacramento, CA, on our vacation road trip on May 11.
I did pack my sewing machine
but it hasn’t seen the light of day.
I’m doing good to get in some crocheting on my #100 day project.
We are now in Holmes County Ohio.

April 350 Block Project

‘. . .our new goal for April, which is 29 blocks,
for a year-to-date total of 103 by the end of April.’ – Prairie Moon Quilts

My totals at the beginning of April,
January 33 + February 34 + March 22 = 89 blocks!

Life and trying to do ‘something'(a crochet project started in 2015),
for 100 days straight ate into my fun time.

I completed 12 scrappy, happy 30’s blocks in April.

I almost made it!
January 33 + February 34 + March 22 + April 12 = 101!
I’ll accept a pat on the back.


I don’t even have a new picture.
I love the way these blocks look.

Our new goal for May is to make 46 blocks for a year-to-date total of 149.
Not sure how many I’ll get done,
because we’re leaving Thursday,
on our 2nd cross-country road trip,
We live in Sacramento, CA area.

March 350 Block Project

350-2017

‘Our new goal for March is 12 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 74’. Prairie Moon Quilts

I started March with 67 blocks.

I finished these 6 crazy pieced blocks for my daughter’s customer,
topstitching the pieces to the foundation fabric
and doing the setting sashes and border.
The pieces looked to be from someones clothing,

4 Scrappy Trip Around the World Blocks

I stumbled on this pattern and it said make me in 30’s fabric.
I love 30’s prints. So it was easy to obey.
Blocks will finish about 14 3/4 inches.
I haven’t settled on how many blocks I’ll end up making.
Bonnie, a Hopeless Scrapaholic,
posted the directions for this quilt here

I’ve been making pot holders as gifts, 3 for March.
Still using bright, happy 30’s.

I also fussy cut 9 blocks for quilt in progress.
Blocks are sewn together, ready for borders.
Picture, hopefully, next month.

This gives me a total of 22 blocks for March.
January 33 + February 34 = March 22 = 89 blocks!

I’m happy!

February 350 Blocks Project

350-2017

 

‘OK, so here it is the end of February, and we’re supposed to have 62 blocks made by now”
Prairie Moon Quilts.

Goal for February 35 blocks.

I made 16 blocks for this table topper
at a class offered by Run With Scissors,
Citrus Heights, CA
Night time pic are hard on the colors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the topper letovers I made 9 blocks for coasters.
Miniature crazy quilts.

 

9 blocks were cut out from a cute coffee theme panal.
Simple just cut out, next I’ll pad and back, stitch,
turn rightside out then quilt a little.
These will become small hot pads.
     

I love this fabric for the backing.

So I’m adding 34 to my total blocks made.

January 33 + February 34 = 67 blocks!
I’m a few ahead.
Time will tell how this project finishes.
