July: I can't believe I only did 49 blocks this month. Cause I tried to sew everyday this month, there were a few day's that I didn't get to sew due to illness.
Here are some pictures of the blocks I did this month.

 I just love this fabric bowl..

 I did 30 log cabin blocks for the "Express Your Love" background.

Here's what I made with all those HST that I did last month.

I know this isn't a block, but I worked on this on our Guild's sewing retreat.

June:  For June I did 40 HST 2" for our Modern Quilt Guild challenge.


Can't show the project yet, but will next month.

Oh I also did the block for Aiming for Accuracy Quilt Along.


 This quilt has 47 blocks and a couple of circles with the left over fabric.  This was a challenge from my modern quilt guild.  They gave us 8 strips of 2 1/2 inch strips and we had to make something anything out of them.  So I started cutting them into 7 1/2 inch rectangles and added white strips around them.  On the back I used the left over fabric and made circles.

Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month by In Color Order

Our Modern Quilt Guild is also doing the Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month.  I have caught up on those this weekend. Here April, May and June done.
Each block contains 4 half square triangles put together to make a big block.
I have them on my design wall, I haven't taken any pictures of them pieced together yet. Which I just finished piecing all of them this afternoon.  Will get pictures of those later.  I wanted to get my counts posted.  I know I have a few more days before the end of the month. Tomorrow I'm gonna be spending time with family and friends. Not much quilting, then I go back to work. So wasn't sure when I would have time to post before the end of the month.

April: I only did 15 blocks almost made 350 but short, I will get it next month...
I did 5 each of these designs from Elieen Roche's craftsy class.


March: 50 blocks for a Craftsy class that I am taken.


February: 246 if you count 105 hand hexagons basted. There was over 100 1 1/2 inch HST that I did. Trying something different this month with small scale... :)

16 Hexagons sewn together by hand. Still need to make more I am wanting to make a grandmothers flower garden, all hand pieced.
 Inside the storage bin is 105 hexagons that I hand basted.

 Picture below has 100 HST 1 1/2 inches

January :  32 blocks for January



Under that pile there are 18 more blocks. Plus 2 strips that still needs to be cut into 2 1/2 strips to make more blocks.

I also made this scrap holder.. That I put next to my cutting table.  It brings in some color... :)
