Some of this, Some of that

First my destashing report:  Used a few scraps for some string blocks - about .10 yd.  Used a few pieces to make more hexagons - another .05 yd.  Made a few more units for En Provence and a few pieces for the Anna's Garden block - .05 yd.  Pulled and sorted out of the stash 6 yards to give to the Pay and Take Corner at the guild meeting tomorrow.  My YTD use/donation now stands at 6.8 yds destashed! 

Design wall #1 hasn't changed. Design wall #2 now has my first 2017 RSC block which is also my first Winter Solstice block.

I'm also participating in Shelley's "The 350 Blocks Project" in which you make blocks all year to see how many you construct.  If you get to 350 blocks, you're eligible for prizes at the end of the year.  Last year participants made over 35,000 blocks!  What's fun is you decide what blocks you're making; they don't go anywhere. It's all fun.  And the two 2017 projects above will help me keep making blocks.  Here's her badge, and Angela's, too.

What are you up to?  I'm working on my sampan, my Anna's Garden block, and thinking what top to make next as a baby quilt.  Leave me a comment and I'll come check your blog.  Blessings!

Gorgeous purple you have there. It makes a striking block. I'm still working on the 365 Challenge so I have enough to keep me busy. I am not about to start on another year long project soon. But good luck to you and enjoy! ;^)

Mmmm churn dash is one of my favorites. Love your purple too. I have made a heap of 4 patches in purple for the RSC17. We'll see how far I get. Maybe I need some small design walls...just need to find a wall or two. Yours seem to work so well Angie.

I'm glad you're joining us again for the 350 Blocks Project! I'm planning to make LOTS of scrap quilts this year, so I should be making plenty of blocks!

I love the 350 block fun, and I try to do RSC, but somehow my colors never really match. I keep planning, but it doesn't happen. Still, I see a lot of great blocks on other posts, like yours, and I do love seeing what people do. Churn Dash is my second favorite block. I intended to do Winter Solstice, but so far, my year has not gone according to plan. =) Yours is off to a great start with the stash reduction! I took in another box of orphan scraps from a friend. LOL
