Voilà!! I did it!!

I did it all! So happy! I did my OMG (one monthly goal). This afternoon, I finished cleaning and oiling the deck. During the weekend, it might get a coat of sealer or maybe next week. After diner, I finished all the last blocks of April for the 365 Challenge and June is not over yet! YES!! I am no longer 8 weeks behind but only 6 weeks now. Can I keep up ? Can I get even closer ? For now I just want to enjoy it. :^D

 Kansas Star - 45 pieces

 Blueberry Pie - 49 pieces (I really like this block. Maybe as RSC for next year? Yep, it could work.)

 Windmill - 44 pieces (not sure about this one. It might get another coat of colour before getting into the quilt. We'll see.)
And even the Old Maid is fixed. Okay, maybe not the best of fixes but I thought I had to "make do with what I have" and I did. (See last post for the beginning of this story.) I stitched all around after trimming it. I was afraid it would come apart before I have the chance to assemble it to the quilt.

And now for the stats of all those blocks done in the last few months.

January - 371 pieces
February - 570 pieces 
March - 496 pieces 
April -  853 pieces 

Total so far - 2290 pieces

The best is yet to come in this quilt as some blocks have a whole lot more pieces than those done so far. 

Next block is May first with a beautiful basket block. But first, a glass of wine to celebrate. It is important to celebrate our little victories. :^D
