Block of the month
When I started this blog, I was hoping to do a couple of things. Inspire other people who like to quilt by sharing what I work on, making a journal of what I do, and keeping myself on task as I tend to get sidetracked on my quilting. Well, it is definitely working out the way I had hoped for! When I start out my day, I think about what my post is going to be on my blog. Now if only I would have to be responsible for blogging about my workout routine and the time I spend at the gym!!! Today I worked more on my apron strings quilt. I have 9 blocks done, just 3 to go ... yay! I have to work tomorrow, so hopefully I will get those blocks done on Friday (do you see what I'm doing here? Because I told you I'm going to get them done, then I have someone to be held accountable to!). I put together the first piece of my Across the Wide Missouri block ... there are maybe about 10 more sections, but if I do a little bit at a time, I'll be done by the end of the year. The worst part is there is a big border and lots of applique, but the applique is big pieces, so that helps.
