350 Blocks Project

Dee Dee left a comment on one of my blog posts at the beginning of this year suggesting that I check out the "350 Blocks Project 2014" at Prairie Moon 



The hope with this project is to help us make progress on our UFOs, and I guess the thought is that the more blocks you make, the further you will get on your UFOs. Each month has a goal number of blocks, although many people make significantly more than the goal. For January, the goal was 20.

I surprised myself with the number of blocks I finished in January. It helps that most of them were bowtie blocks for two different projects. I love how easy it is to make bowties! Unfortunately, only about half of the blocks I made were for any of my UFOs; the rest are for new or fairly recent projects. 

My blocks made in January:
Judy L's Tell It to the Stars mystery--2 blocks

Rainbow Scrap Challenge LeMoyne Stars--10 blocks (one dud didn't make the photo)
Scrap Hexies--1 star & 1 snowflake

Rainbow Scrap Challenge Ninepatches--9

Scrappy Sampler--44 bowties for the border

Bowtie Baby Quilt--58 blocks

Total January blocks--125

Take a look at how many blocks others finished for the 350 Blocks Project at Prairie Moon Quilts.

  1. I love them all! That's a lot, and such a variety. What a treat for the eyes . . .

  2. That's a lot of blocks! Sounds like a fun challenge. I may have to check that one out.

  3. wow, so much in a month. I like the assortment of colours you have used. The hexies and stars are such pretty colours. Good luck in the challenge. I barely made this month's challenge, but will get started earlier this month.
