February Progress: Week Three

The One Where I Actually Finish Some Blocks

I've been primarily working on my king sized February goal this month. Life has been trying it's best to get in the way. I continue to be thankful to Sarah for her 4x7 Sewing Challenge for the month, to keep me focused mostly on the one project (which is hard for me) and for the encouragement to just do that 30 minutes (or whatever I can manage some days) each day, even when I don't feel like it or really don't have the time. I'm thrilled with my progress and have finished 15 of my 36 quilt blocks, with the other 21 of them in progress, assembly line style (go go gadget chain piecing!). This gives me six more days to finish the blocks up, get them pieced together and add on the three borders. It'll be a stretch, but I might just finish the quilt top. (Why'd I chose the shortest month of the year to make a king size quilt!?) This will be the first quilt that I'm sending out to be quilted, so the quilt top will be nearly the "done" stage as far as my work goes, which is even more exciting.

Just keep sewing. Just keep sewing.

Here's a slightly wonky late night pic of how the blocks look together:

 

I also got these four blocks together this week to finish my IG Rainbow Mini Swap quilt top. You might remember the pattern from my Antioxidant Delight quilt.

 

Linking up to Sarah's 4x7 Sewing Challenge Week 3 and Thankful Thursday.

      Thanks, Bo! It'll be so nice to have it on our bed instead of the (totally doesn't match the room) t-shirt quilt of my college shirts. I'm glad that the rainbow quilt came together. After designing Antioxidant Delight I knew I wanted to use it again and I was excited to do this in a different way.

      Thank you, Kathy. I'm working on two separate 100% purple projects, plus one of the two patchwork city blocks I'm on this month is purple. I love purple, but part of the reason I worked on the rainbow mini this week was to see some other colors! ;-)

      Thank you so much, Shauna! Your cross blocks are looking great. I love the one with the moustache background! :-)

  2. Chain piecing for the win! I'm weighing in late in the week, Sarah, but I hope to be really surprised with photos of a gorgeous finished top with your last link up : ) Even if you don't quite get it done, at least you'll be so close!
