Here’s a quick peek at some of the 55 blocks I’ve completed for my Civil War sampler quilt. These are 8″ blocks that I’ve been sewing in my monthly “Civil Sewing Circle.” It was nice to spread them all out to get a better idea of how much has been accomplished with this project for the past year.
In addition, I am rededicating myself to the Building Houses from Scraps challenge. The idea is to sew one scrappy house block a day – right now I have 17. On June 1st, I started sewing 2 a day (and plan to for the rest of the year), so there will be 365 blocks by Dec 31. As of June 1, I am only 6 blocks behind (as in, I still haven’t started sewing on them 🙂 ).
Any tips for how to better organize your time? I’m sure all of us could use some time management advice. I’ve tried various ways to get on a sewing (and blogging) schedule, but it seems something always comes up that is more important. Right now, my focus is on finishing projects since so many are close to being done. By the end of June, there should be quite a dent in the UFO pile (fingers crossed).
Keep it thimble!
