350 Block Project 2016 - April's Report



This month's total is 30 blocks.

It has been a slow month for stitching. There always seem to be something else that needed doing keeping me away from the sewing machine. I did manage some English Paper piecing and made 6 hexagons for a sample project.


When I did get to the machine I made my 4 Christmas sampler blocks but that took a whole afternoon, plus some.

23 little Four Patch block got made for the need to sew something. There might have to be a scrap project in the making so I can use these up.

Lastly 1 Scrap Dance Tango block A got made 4 more yet to be made.

So my total for the month stands at 34.
Until Next Time

Time to finish a Project.

I haven't done a lot this month as other things have got in the way. I have 2 quilts waiting for binding to finish them off. So I selected the smaller one which is Quilt #4 from my Stash Bash Sewing Party Booklet available to purchase at Cynthia's Ark. The binding had been prepared earlier so I was ready to sew it on.

I love the quilting on it. Does it look familiar?



If you have seen Quilt #1 Catch Me if You Dare it should be familiar as it is the same pattern and thread.

Binding is on and I just need to turn it over and hand stitch it in place. Then it will be ready to hang on my stand at the Stitches and Craft Show next week with two of the others from the Stash Bash Sewing Party Booklet.

Until Next Time

My Christmas Reproduction Sampler blocks.

I have been struggling this month with everything. I don't know why things have been hard to complete. I haven't had a lot of sewing or creating time so I have been struggling with what to write about in my blog post.
Today I did manage a little sewing time and I finished this month Christmas Sampler blocks. Looking through my previous posts I noticed I haven't done a single post on this project. I have mention it in passing in other posts and considering I have completed blocks 10-13. It was time to share my progress on my Christmas Sampler quilt. Here are the four blocks I have made this week.

Here is all the blocks I have made so far this year.  This project is a twelve month program and there is 35 blocks in the quilt plus a few extra blocks for a little bonus project at the end after quilt is completed.
Now I do have a few Christmas Reproduction Block of the month packages still available if you wish to join us. One of the benefits of starting now is when you get to the end of your 12 month May next year you will have some extra time to quilt and bind your quilt compare to us trying to do all that in December this year. Click over to Cynthia's Ark and click on the Blocks of the Month to purchase.

Until Next Time
