OMG for May

Going to play along this month for One Monthly Goal over at Red Letter Quilts.

My goal for May is to get my niece's quilt top completed and put together.

The blocks are Road to California:

I have about 12 made, and think I have enough of the black leaf pattern to make 25-30. I hope. If not, I'll make blocks until I run out, and come up with borders to make it big enough :)

April 350 blocks report


A long time to not post - I was nudged by Prairie Moon Quilts April blocks report..

It was a reasonably productive month, though. I'm going to call my final number of blocks 23.

I finished this hourglass miniature quilt; it was a UFO from the heart quilt I made, using the leftover trimmed blocks. 72 blocks! They're tiny, though, and I was starting with already-made HST, so I'm going to claim 16.

I pieced a miniature trip around the world, and started quilting it. How many blocks in this one? One? 

I stopped keeping track of my split 9-patches at the end of March, and only started back up the last week of this month - 5 blocks this month. Likely more, but I didn't document them! I had 45 in February and 52 in March. I kept up with the 365 challenge blocks (28 of them) in February, but completely dropped out in March :(. I also got one Road to California block done in February, so February's TOTAL is 74.

Overall YTD is 83 + 74 + 52 + 23 = 277

I've also started to organize beads, in the hope that I'll actually USE them if I can see them better.
