Life got in the way of Quilting.... Oh No

It has been a while since I posted anything to my blog. OK, my last post was on March 31st and its July 31st today.  You know when life gets in the way when you are not be able to do your hobby you know that there is a problem.. lol… not really I was able to quilt a little at a time, but not as much as I would have like to. April and May just really pasted me by before I even knew it only did 30 blocks. Then in June I had an injury, I fell up the stairs going into work.  Yes I fell up the stairs and injured my hand, wrist and arm. Quilting one handed wasn’t an option in June, so not much quilting at all that month. At the end of June my daughter come home from South Korea with my granddaughter. We celebrated Riley's birthday in July even though her birthday was in June. Her daddy made it home from South Korea to celebrate her 1st birthday.  They were in Georgia for her birthday, so I made the trip from Missouri down there.  This was a great trip. I got to sit down and teach my daughter to quilt. She loves it now that she knows how to use the machine.
Tomorrow my second granddaughter will be born. Can't wait she is being induced at 5:00 am.  They made it to Ft. Bragg, NC where they will be stations.  So much closer than South Korea.

So I know that March I stepped it up and made 92 blocks, With everything that has been going on I did do a little quilting. But for the last 3 months I only actually did 43 blocks so my total for the year is 152 blocks which is way under the goal so far.  But I still have time to meet my yearly goal.

In April I made 15 blocks for a friend to piece for her grand baby girl.  They love batman, so with my scan n cut. I cut out the batman and put it on the blocks for her. Then designed the quilt in EQ7 for her for a layout to follow.  She loved it.

Remember I was working on the blocks for my relay for life quilt and I did 8 blocks in March.  I did finish that quilt and we raised over $800 for relay for life.  There was actually 23 blocks in this small quilt, I didn't use all of the 8 blocks that was crazy quilted, instead I did some embroidery on some of them, which you can't really see.   A great guy at work won the quilt...  so on this one I did a total of 15 blocks.


I also worked on my Skill Builder BOM 2015 Technicolor Galaxy quilt.
There was 10 complete blocks in each block there was 3 different sections that I had to paper piece and then put then into 1 block.  So I am only counting the completed blocks so 10 blocks for these.


I started the Row by Row I have 10 rows but only did 3 rows. Which I am counting each row 1 block.

Of course I quilted a quilt book and a panel for my new granddaughter. To be here very soon we are hoping tonight or in the morning.


I know that for 3 months 43 blocks isn't much. But, I will catch up next month.

Happy Sewing!!!
