I was very excited to get back into sewing and quilting during March. My current classes were finished in mid March and amazingly so was basketball, volleyball, and show choir. I feel free! It will not be long lived however, a new quarter starts Monday and soccer practice has officially started. I've got to take advantage of the time while I have it.
I spent the past few weeks working on a baby quilt for a little boy that's due to arrive any day now. I used the pattern Cowboy Baby from the book Material Obsession. I love the colors and I think pinwheels are my new favorite block. I have it all pieced and ready to be quilted.
I have also been busy catching up on the Quilty Fun Sew Along that started last fall. I was way behind, but am now caught up to where I should be. This is the last week and I am excited that I have caught up with everyone else.
A few of the Quilty Fun blocks I have sewn this month.
In order to motivate myself, I joined the 2014 350 Blocks Project. The idea is to try and piece 350 blocks this year. Considering I didn't join until the middle of March, I feel I am off to a good start. The baby quilt had 20 blocks. I am counting 20 blocks for the Quilty Fun Sew Along. I am also in the midst of piecing a quilt for my daughter that is graduating from high school at the end of May. I can add 20 blocks to my total for that quilt as well.
