My Block Challenge Marches On

                                                   Month Three of 350 Block challenge 

First off these are 12 Buggy Barn stars. Yikes! It took about 2 of these before I stabilized. I plan on making a Quilt of Valor from them.

The heart block is mine. Our guild members made these Dreamcicle blocks for Lovina Payton, our Sunshine and Shadows chairperson. She sends us birthday cards, get-well cards, just generally takes care of us in joy and in pain. It was a fun surprise! 

These are the last 4 of my Film at Five Blocks. My next step will be to make the sashing. If you look closely you can find a sock monkey, 2 ducks, a pickle, pink panther, musicians, a pink monkey, a rug rat(I think that is what they are called), and other surprises just in what is visible of these 4 blocks.

The total for this month was 17. Didn't quite reach my goal of 30(I did go over 1/2), but I now have a total of 118. I have some more started, but hopefully they will be done next month.  My life was productive in other ways. The Mountainburg Lady Dragons made it to the Arkansas State Tournament Finals and ended the season with the state runner-up title, 32 wins and 3 losses, Conference, District and Regional championships, and many post season individual honors including Arkansas Coach of the Year from both The Southwest Times in Ft Smith and the Media Group in Ft Smith. I'm very proud of both my husband and his girls!
State Runner-up Team and trophy!

  1. Those star blocks do not look quick to make, so getting 17 done is still quite an accomplishment. Congratulations to the team!
