Counting Blocks - April 2016


This is my continuing monthly count of blocks made for for Prairie Moon Quilts' 350 Block Challenge.  April was not a very productive month for me, quilting-wise (or in terms of blogging), but, as usual, preparing for the block lotto ensures I will spend at least a little of my time quilting each month. 

Here's the list of the 19 blocks made in March. Added to the 179 blocks made during the first quarter of 2016, my new running total for 198 blocks.


5 Butterfly blocks (2 of these were made in March and already counted)–one to test an idea of how to convert a paper-piecing pattern to traditional templates and 4 for my rainbow scraps sampler.  (I still need to make 5 more of these for the Old MacDonald's Mystery Sampler quilt)7 Butterfly blocks
My compulsion interest in completing this very old UFO has waned, but I did manage to make 6 more of these Summer Vine blocks.6 Summer Vine Blocks
... and although I am dealing with some technical difficulties in putting together the block pattern for the May Block Lotto, I did make these 8  scrappy green leaf blocks.

You have some really pretty blocks there. I just adore the butterflies they look like they are about the take flight. That vine ebb and flow is awesome..........I went back and looked at the photo you had with more of them on your design wall and would think those would look awesome with green sashing and all on point. I think we all reach a point (or sometimes more) when we get disenchanted with a project. That will be beautiful when you get it done.

I had forgotten the vine quilt, and suddenly it's very appealing. Does that ever happen to you - sort of a waking up to the beauty of something you missed before? 19 beautiful blocks!

As I sit here drinking a cup of coffee, I look over to see my stack of lights and greens. Only a dream yet of leaf blocks! Love seeing all yours. I have some green bias tape, somewhere. I plan on attaching it to my sampler blocks for a atem.
