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:
I am so excited there are only 3 more days… Come back on Thursday to see all the blocks together! There may also be pictures of all the bits of Brain Waves in one place. Only time will tell.

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!
It has been a very primary-colored week, and I’ll admit I haven’t put much thought into some of these as I’ve been busy with other projects.

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.
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.
