February 350 Blocks Project update

Woo hoo, I finally have my computer back! Yay! I just picked it up at noon today and am busy loading all the software I need back onto it. I should have been quilting, but you know how that goes….LOL.

I actually had a pretty good month. I got a lot done early in the month, then was sick and lost almost two whole weeks of quilting-type work, but made up for it early this week when I jumped in and finished more of the Birds in the Air blocks.

This first block is the center block for a lap quilt for some friends who are huge Packer fans. I finished up the main Packer logo in December and had the letters cut out for the words, I just hadn’t put them on the block yet. Now that part is finished and I just need to work up the border. This is a quilt I had worked up in EQ7 and then lost the files when my laptop crashed. Fortunately, I found a printout of the finished EQ project when I was cleaning in my sewing room the other day!

My next project is for a graduation quilt for a nephew.Brett's quilt

I pieced the 13 9-patch blocks and got the whole center of the quilt pieced together. That leaves only the borders and quilting. I don’t know what is up, but I am way early on getting this one done! By the way, I didn’t count the plain alternate blocks in my block count for the month….I figured that would be cheating, but I may wish I had by the end of the year!

I spent Monday and Tuesday working on more Birds in the Air blocks. Monday I was able to finish up 34 blocks.Birds in the Air

Tuesday I finished up 18 more. Birds in the AirIncluding these, I have 257 birds in the air blocks. I need 280 blocks total so have only 23 more to go.

End result with the 66 I made this month, my total for the year is 123 blocks. I know that makes me way ahead of what I need to be, but I am sure this summer I won’t get so many done, plus I will have all the easy blocks pieced and that will leave only hard ones as I finish the year. For instance, some of the Civil War Tribute blocks have 70-80 pieces per block!

If you haven’t already, hop on over to Shelly’s and see what everyone else has accomplished!

  1. You’re doing great! I know I have some more complicated stuff coming up later, so I’m glad I have that bit of a cushion starting out, too. What’s up with being sick? Don’t you know you don’t have time for that?
