If you’ve been reading along, you’ll know why I didn’t have time to post any of the blocks I made last week, and you’ll also understand why I didn’t actually make a block every single day, but multiple blocks on some days.
Here are the blocks from Week 6 . . .
These are all for my Modern8Create group challenges.
Our challenge for last October was to choose a particular color palette, and then make an improv, sort-of-Gee’s-Bend-style quilt. I’ve done two blocks for mine so far. Yes, I’m behind — you should not be surprised at that!
This next one is for the January challenge, where we were to choose a word and make ourselves a quilt from it. Obviously, I’ve chosen the word “Inspire”. And even though this is the entire quilt, I’m calling it a block. It’s not large, and as soon as I quilt it, I’m done. You can read more about both of these projects here: Modern8Create.
I have not actually begun stitching on my February challenge, but I have a plan, so it’s not far off. And now, the March challenge has already been issued — I can’t seem to keep up!
That’s all the blocks I made for Week 6, but since I’m ahead, I’m not worried . . . yet.
Here’s my blocks for Week 7 . . .
I was cleaning off the top of my island and ran across that pile of leftover pieces from the Red Boots quilt, and decided to just stitch them up before they get lost for good. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with them, and they’re not all the same size . . . so . . . more on that later. What an easy way to boost my count — almost feels like cheating!
That puts my number of Triangle Star blocks at 6. I think I counted up that I want to make 25 of these to make the quilt I want.
So having an off week or two didn’t set me back too badly. I’m at a total of 95 blocks so far. How are you coming along on making blocks this year?
If you have some to show, add them to the Flickr Group so we can all see!
