We are three weeks into Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 78 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks.
I finished 2 blocks this week, bringing me to 34 out of 75 blocks complete. The blocks shown feature Kona Clover and Punch (I think).
I started the week with cutting out the majority of the six blocks in these two colors. These two sections will actually stack vertically in the finished block.
When I'm piecing I like to chain piece... I don't break thread between sewing units. I just take a couple stitches and then start the next seam. It saves time and thread. I also work on multiple blocks at a time, so I sew a bunch of seams, then I go to the ironing board to press them and get ready for the next round.
I finished two 8" blocks this week.
I ended the week with more components stitched together for the coming blocks. My next update should have four more finished blocks. ;-) Then I get to pick some new colors to work on!
Hop over to see what I did in week 1 and week 2.
Cassandra is the organizer of Quilting the Countdown (#quiltingthecountdown on Instagram).
Let me know if you're participating. I'd love to see what you're making.
December is underway and so is Cheryl's annual Blog Writing Challenge. This is my 4th year in a row participating in the December daily blog writing challenge. I have some finished projects to show you, some works in progress to update you on, and some year in review and goal posts planned for the end of the month.
Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm a quilter, traveling (via Zoom these days) quilt teacher and lecturer, and pattern writer. I'm currently participating in a 100 Day Challenge to make progress toward completing one of my oldest WIPs.
What else do you want to know about me and my quilting? I like to include tips, tricks, and tutorials. What would you like to know more about?

'Tis the season for gift giving... and for makers, 'tis the season for finishing up those handmade gifts.

And remember, you can like up gifts of years past as well. :-)
I have some go to gifts I make over and over, including the Open Wide Zippered Pouch...

One year I made a ton of key fobs.
And of course, I love to give a cuddly lap quilt.
