Block count and a goal


This month I am joining Patty of Elm Street Quilts and her One Monthly Goal link up.
I made very comprehensive lists last year and because I didn't make much headway on them, I'm working off the same lists for this year's projects.
Foxley Village was something I did pretty well with last year. I completed all the applique blocks. And I even made some of the pieced blocks.
There are four columns. Here's the first two completed columns —
And here's part of column four —
This month I aim to get column four completed!!!
Please visit Patty *here* to either sign up yourself or to have a good little look at other bloggers' goals.

I completed Block Three of The Santa, The Tree, The Turkey and Me (by Anni Downs) recently —
And have made three more Omigosh! blocks —
And another two Scrappy Christmas blocks —
Although I was focused on getting The Lorax quilt finished in January, I squeezed in a little block sewing time!
With the temperature quilt blocks and other bits and pieces, these latest ones took my block tally for January to 24. I've signed up with Shelly of Prairie Moon Quilts to do the 350 block challenge - January's goal was 31 so I'm a bit short but oh well.

I thought I'd finish with sharing a photo of Lily wearing the hat I made her, shown in my last post.
It's passed the test - she loves it!

'til next time,
happy stitches,

I’m so pleased Lily liked her hat. It looks lovely on her. Good luck with your goal. Hopefully the quilt will be completed this year. Your other blocks turned out well too.

Good progress on your 🦊 Foxley Village.. and you nearly made it for the block challenge...
Great Lily loved her hat....

You're making great progress.

Lily looks good with her hat and it is so nice to see kids having it ingrained in them from a young age to wear a hat for protection for the sun. Good luck with all your projects

Even though you can't see her cute face, it is obvious that the hat works well for Lily.
Very smart of you to work from last year's incomplete list. Some people accomplished more sewing than usual during their COVID year, but I am not one of those people. :) But look at all the blocks you made during January. It may not be the 31 you were aiming for, but it is awfully close. Good job!

Fun to see Lily wearing her cute hat. I love it. And I enjoyed seeing all your blocks, but the dog in the Santa hat really caught my attention. Pawsome!

Really love the omigosh blocks. I think I said this last time but I just keep thinking how much I want to make one of those. The hat is so cute and glad she's enjoying it!

Glad Lily loves her hat, it is fabulous. You got a lot done.

Shelly said...

That's a lot of sewing! I love that quilt that's in columns -- so pretty.

Angie said...

Raewyn - kudos to you for not beating yourself up over goals that you didn't achieve! Your work is lovely - I especially like Santa's clothes! And we know kids can be picky, so well done with Lily's hat!

dq said...

You got so much done! Your work is so beautiful as usual, and I just love all of your projects. Those tree ornaments certainly must go into my Christmas quilt!
There you go with those Omigosh blocks! I am super far behind you and don't plan to catch up, but if I can just make some along with you each month, it will move me forward.

That last photo warms my heart. I love the little hat. Your blocks look wonderful. 24 in a month is a big deal. You’ll see lots of finishes at that rate.

Kathryn T said...

Love all the variety of blocks here. All the best with the column four of Foxley, will be gorgeous I am sure as the others. Thanks for visiting me at Kathryn Quilts.

Karen S said...
