I have finished the month of August ... uh uhm 2016, in the 365 Challenge quilt.
So happppppppppyyyyyyy! Like a good movie or book, which has a sequel, August finished with a twist. Let's have a look.
Last weekend, I picked fabrics for a few blocks at a time. It makes the task of cutting so much easier when you have little sewing time.
And here is Garden Square in all its glory with 29 pieces.
4 H with 20 pieces
English Ivy 27 pieces
August 28 Stoch Plaid with 28 pieces, some were cut at 7/8 of an inch.
Aunt Addie's Album with 25 pieces
Then came Anvil with 17 pieces. Here is where I thought that the end of the month was a breeze. It was a very easy block to assemble.
And last, but obviously not least, August 31 with a twist!!
It's called Mosaic #15. Someone was running out of imagination at naming blocks. I thought it was an easy one as it look pretty innocent. Ha!
167 pieces were used in these 7 blocks.
With this, the month of August is done. It took 815 pieces to make the entire month. Only four more months. The first of September is already done since it is corner number one, which I had to try a while back. You can see it here and here.
On with the reds.
Last week, I showed you this picture and asked what was I doing.
So, now all the reds for this project are done. I won't wait for next month's colors to continue on this project but will just move on to another color.
This morning, bright and early, I went sewing with the Artisanat Club. We made port-a-cath pillows, 65 of them actually.
I've asked the ladies to cut some more to bring home to sew. You will see these little pillows on my blog again. Hopefully soon. I have to find Velcros as we ran out.
I've also made another Ohio Star variation block. It has a basket of apples and a pumpkin as the center. I picked a heart print for the background as I love Fall. The center is not pieced; just a very interesting print.
And that's all for this week.
Wish you all a wonderful week.
