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.

Last night I stumbled upon this ‘project’ –

make 350 quilt blocks in 2017.

I not really good with goals,
but since I plan on making quilts all year long,
I thought it would be a fun way to track my progress.

So far in January I’ve made 13 blocks
