Block a Day July complete

By some amazing feat of dedication I have completed Block a Day July, all 31 blocks!  I was even sick through part of it!   Woo hoo!!

Anyway, I was planning to post about Brain Waves as well, but there was just too much on my plate today, and I’m running out of daylight.  A skirt that needs buttons and buttonholes is eyeing me from across the room.  Brain Waves update, soon!

Pics or it didn’t happen:

Block a Day July Week 3

What I have learned so far from this project:

  • I would not succeed at making a block a day for an entire year
  • Taking an attractive photo of many blocks at once without a design wall is more effort than it should be
  • A wrinkly quilt is not a good background for an attractive photo

See you next week!

Adrianne at On the Windy Side challenged herself to make a block a day for the month of July and asked for others to join in. She is doing QAYG, but I’m not as I thought this would be a good way to help me pull together my Brain Waves quilt (maybe in time for a show at the end of this year?). I think this quilt is ready to be finished, especially after being a back burner project for so long.

Block a Day July Week 1

Each day I make a 6″ block and post it on Instagram, and if I feel so inclined I can continue to make larger pieces for the quilt as well. I figured I’d post the week’s blocks here each Monday to digest my progress, then I’ll do a big wrap-up post on the 31st.
