I did pretty good this week on a wider variety of blocks.
Here’s this week’s blocks . . .
Our Modern Guild challenge for February. It was Donna’s turn to offer the block challenge, and she chose an alphabet quilt. I took the “S”, because it’s my initial, blissfully forgetting that it was paper foundation piecing, which I don’t like, and the “S” had lots of pieces. I should have taken “I” or “H” or something . . . Anyhow, I made it just fine, altho I already wish I’d chosen different fabrics. I don’t think it shows up like it should. We were supposed to match our fabric to our letter, and I had this “saddle” fabric I wanted to use . . . live and learn . . .
If you’re interested in the alphabet quilt, you can get the block patterns HERE.
Another Modern Guild challenge block. This is Jackie’s March challenge block, from an Eleanor Burns BOM. Jackie is a certified Quilt-in-a-Day instructor! We were supposed to use dark blue for the center cross part, and the rest was up to us.
Wednesday’s block: Bouquets for Hazel, Block 1
Each year, my other guild (not the modern one), offers a yearly challenge. This year’s challenge involved lots of 2 1/2″ strips, and I’ll be writing an entire ‘nother post on exactly how it worked and what we did when I get my quilt closer to finished. But I’ve been working on mine, and this is one of the blocks. And yes, they’re all different, because I can rarely stand doing the same thing twice. It’s an ADD thing . . .
Friday’s block: More tiny HSTs
Still no plan, so I still can’t tell you more, but the pile is growing, so maybe soon . . .
And that’s all I did this week. No progress on any of my real BOM projects. Sometime I’m gonna have to get crackin’ on those . . .
My count is now up to 111 blocks for the year. Woohoo! I can hardly believe there’s this one thing I’m not behind on . . .
How are you doing on your blocks for the year?
