It's funny how putting these weekly updates up on the blog really makes me feel better about my accomplishments each week. The first week of February (!!) has come and gone and I had a migraine for 4 days of that, struggling to get to the sewing room and I was feeling pretty low about not getting as much done as I wanted to. But this morning I take pics of everything I did and feel much better! I got WAY more done than I thought.
Let's start with the blocks for the 365 Quilt Challenge. I love that all of these blocks so far have been out of my scrap bin.
A few of those were pretty detailed and took a lot of time but there were several easy ones that helped a lot.
Next up is last week's block for the Adventurously Epic Sampler. Thankfully, this one was before my migraine started. These blocks are so pretty!!
As it was the beginning of a new month, a lot of monthly blocks came out. Like this month's block for the Children's Library Mystery.
I'm loving the fabrics in that one. Too bad it'll take a whole year to get it finished. I also did the bee blocks for my Sew Sweet Bee sister, A Quilting Sheep, her design called Friendship Love.
I make one block to send and one to keep for a Bee Yearbook Quilt at the end of the year. I love that block. So cute and simple! I also went ahead and tested the one I think I'm choosing for my month in March. It's called First Kiss by Podunk Pretties.
Isn't it sweet?!? I love her designs so much and can't wait to play with these blocks more. Also before the migraine hit, thankfully, the first block for the new Release the Kraken BOM by Quarter Inch of Quirk came out. I fell in love with the design and couldn't resist joining in.
Can you say "OMG!!"? I was squealing when I finished these pretties. I've been saving a fat quarter stack of Horizon by Kate Spain and this is the perfect project for it. Love!!!
I also got the first month's blocks in the mail for Fig Tree's new mystery, Nantucket Seaside. Here are the blocks so far...
I love the fabrics in this and can't wait to add some Coney Island to the mix. Love!!!
Next up are the blocks for this week's 52 Week's with the Quilter's Planner, hosted by Gnome Angel. The block on the left is the block for the week, the block on the right is leftover from Project 48 and being framed to go with this quilt.
That finished up the blocks for this week. I also put the blocks together for another NICU quilt. This is another one using the Framed pattern in Simply Retro.
And lastly, I put together my bee blocks from last year. I asked for the Star Surround block by Happy Quilting.
So, as you can see, I wasn't as "unproductive" as I felt!! :)
