Block Progress

My A.D.D. self has started another project.  Last week (I think), I blogged about wanting to start the Craftsy BOM series from 2012.  I just loved Amy Gibson's choice of blocks, so I told myself, "you can make one block a day, and that's that."  - Plus I just so happened to have a few yards of Kona Snow, the fabric she chose as her background fabric, so I took that as a sign.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you my progress so far.  I've got 7 blocks completely done, and one 3/4 done - my husband wanted to call it early last night so we could go for a run this morning... out of respect for the light sleeper, I turned off the sewing machine.

Here's what I've made so far on this project:

January Blocks
The Asterisk Block

Slashed Pound Sign

February Blocks
Balkan Puzzle
The Balkan Puzzle - this one has been one of my faves so far :)

Broken Spider Web
The IN-PROGRESS Broken Spider Web

April Blocks
These are hexie blocks which I haven't done because, frankly, my printer is out of ink!

May Blocks
Modern Frame Log Cabin
Modern Frame Log Cabin - I really enjoyed the improv blocks.. I'm thinking about making an entire quilt of either a May block or something from March... but that's in the future.

Well, that's about all for now! Finishing up the Broken Spider Web block today, and going to go pick up ink for the printer so I can do my hexie blocks.

Linking up with WIP Wednesdays @ Freshly Pieced


  1. I love all of these blocks. I am all for starting a new project. I get bored as well. I eventually come back to it.

    1. Aw thanks! Me too... I just need to finish one once in a while too haha. It's always been the same way for me. 15-thousand projects at once and they're all WIPs. :)
