Good News, Bad News and … the July Mod-Mod QAL Update
The good news: I’ve begun working on a short contract gig.
The bad news: It might take me a while to remember how to juggle Block Lotto deadlines with a (nearly) full time job. Thanks, in advance, for your patience with me. I’ve been stressing out about whether the contracts and scheduling would come together for the job and haven’t yet made any of my MMQA (Mod-Mod Quilt Along) blocks this month. I am determined NOT to fall behind, but … we’ll see.
For July, in the Mod-Mod Quilt-Along, we’re adding Spokes blocks. Here’s how many blocks you’ll need to make this month, added to the chart of blocks we’ve made so far.
|Diagonal Bars Blocks||4||4||8||12||12||20|
|Star Chain Blocks||1||2||2||3||4||5|
|Double Chevron Blocks||1||2||3||4||6||8|
