I have made some blocks for the 365 Challenge. I am getting so far behind that I can't see the dust cloud from the group before me anymore! Whatever! I am having fun at my own pace. Slow Poke won the race after all.
Now I've said in a previous post, that June was the month with the most pieces. So let's see what I did.
June 8th was Odd Fellow Chain
Kathryn is sweet enough to put one block with lots of pieces followed by one with a whole lot less. Thanks Kathryn.
Steps to the Altar
Any block following this one would be less pieces, well that's what I am hoping for.
Salute to the Colours
June 12th Hen and Chickens
To keep the chicken population under control, I think, Kathryn chose Eagle's nest for July 13th.
Gretchen came next
32 pieces. At this point, I thought the next one would have a lot of pieces because we had a few with, somewhat, reasonable amount of pieces. So ...
Okay, I was wrong but I didn't like the look of this one. Kathryn didn't assembled it as I thought it would be assembled. She made it as a nine patch and it was so easy to make. Now, it's on the RSC list too. :^D
Okay so June 16th brought Windmill
and BANG!! There's the biggie with 104 pieces. Many, many HSTs trimmed down to 1 1/4 inch. Not all though, because those touching the bigger triangles are supported by a square on each sides and then they are trimmed. Much easier way to do than what I had envisioned.
If you have counted them, you know that there more than seven blocks here. Yep, well, I had some good days lol.
The total of this loooonnng week in June, is 523 pieces.
The total for June so far is 848 pieces. (I am barely over the middle of the month.)
The grand total for the year is 4 390 pieces. Oh my! I think I fainted a little. (lol)
Unfortunately I am running low on some brown / tan coloured fabrics. I'll have to go shopping. Poor me, right? Lol.
Now I said I have a plan. Actually, I THINK I have a plan for my OMG.
I could finish June and July in the 365 Challenge. Nope.
I could finish my MIL's table runner. Nope.
I could make the placemats (not even started yet) for my friend. Nope.
I could quilt Shakespeare in the Park. Nope.
What really, but really needs to be done is ... a baby quilt. NO, NO, not for me. No, my gosh. Thank you very much, but no thanks! I would like to show a quilt at the craft show come November, to see the reaction of the public. Between you and I, I would like to sell some quilts.
SOOoooo, the grey fabric the blocks are sitting on, in the last picture, is what I would like to use as background fabric. Solid, soft grey with ... I don't know. There's too many ideas in my head I can't pick one. Anywho! That's my One Monthly Goal for September.
Joining Heidi at Red Letter Quilts.
Joining Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Hope you go and visit too. There's so much goodies to see.
Until next time ... try to stay in stitches!
