On January 1st 2016, I started Kathryn Kerr’s 365 Challenge. The idea was to make a quilt block every day and at the end of the year you would have a quilt top made up of 365 different blocks. Several times I got way behind but I always managed to catch up. I got all the way to December 10th and then I stopped. 21 days from the finish….crazy! I’m sick and tired of those blocks starring back at me so I have challenged myself to finish the quilt top by the end of 2017 (only one year late). I sat down to work on December 10th’s block and then I knew why I gave up on that date. This 6″ block is made up of dozens of 1/2 inch finished half square triangles. That’s crazy. Determined to keep my goal on track, it took me most of the day, but I knuckled down and finished it. It’s quite nice but man I would never make another one. I was just on Kathryn’s website and I see that in 2018 she is repeating the 2016 quilt so if you want to torture yourself, seriously it was a good exercise in patience and piecing many different blocks, there is still time to join up.
