I'm up to 40-ish. I lost count! Good thing you posted today or I'd be further behind! Giggle.....

Maria said...

I´ve have 46. Not that I make one everyday, but last week I made 10 or so. So tomorrow I must make blocks for the next week! I just love this projekt!

Jenny said...

wish my sewing was unpacked. Will just have to admire everyone elses hard work. Until I get every thing set up in our new home.

Good Job!!

connie said...

I am at 41. I little bit behind but I think I can make it up. I am loving this.

Frogdancer said...

Not as many as you have. Today I have the day off work, (I'm a teacher and the mid year reports and exams have just finished. I did mine before report-writing day, so today is MINE!!!), so I hope to catch up over this weekend. I'm a week behind.

allsewnup said...

I'm sitting at 46 too! Tonight it looking like rain so I plan on getting a few more done.

Jackie said...

Very productive, you are! Love to see stacks!

Julie said...

I'm so excited...I finished number 70 this morning and am working on setting them now. I used them as leaders/enders and got through them quicker than I thought I would. This was a terrific idea, and I appreciate your sponsoring it.

Leslie said...

oh man...i have to get cracking again. I have about 40 right now. i love your pile shot

Heather said...

I'm not following along with you but I am working on a disappearing 9 patch that has required me to make 42 some (I think). Does this count??!! :) I can't to see what everyone ends up with.

Robyn said...

I've got 45, but I'm going to have to take a few days off as my in-laws are in town and they're staying in my sewing room, (the guest room!)

Needled Mom said...

I'm at 40+ so guess I'd best get some more done to catch up. Thanks for keeping us updated on how many we are suppose to have done.

Valerie said...

Still behind but will catch up. I promise!!

Terriaw said...

Wow, good for you! That looks like a lovely stack of 9-patches. I've only made 18 so far.

Thimbleanna said...

Overachiever!!! ;-)

Let's just say, by the end of the weekend I'll be caught up!

Thanks for the updates -- I was wondering how far we should be by now. Have a great weekend!

Nichole said...

52! I have more fabric cut and pieces pinned ready to go as well.

Britt said...

I'm at 49 and should get some more made this weekend. I'm ready to start thinking about how much fabric I need for the sashing. Thanks so much for the idea, I love my blocks!

Fiesta said...

70!
I am excited about putting the sashing on. Looking forward to seeing how it will look.

MelissaS said...

I'm at 47! So 70 is our goal? I forgot....no problemo.

Now I gotta go get me some snow white Kona for sashing.

And, I'm almost caught up with Old Red Barn.

This weekend will be a busy one!

Betsy said...

I'll admit it....I am behind. I am going to catch up though...I promise...no more procastinating...except I have to finish a romper first. Oh well....I'll get there.

leigh said...

I think I'm at 46. I was doing catch up last night and thought I was ahead. Oh well - at least I'm not behind :)

Amy said...

I think I have thirty something, but I have all the squares for all of them and the scrappy border cut out!
I usually sit down and do a batch of them at a time.

Anonymous said...

My hand quilting is *so* close to being done, I can't hardly stand it! Now on to the bias binding, LOL! Should be finished, with a pic, early next week, busy weekend...... I <3 this quilt!

Meg said...

I've only got 30 left, but since mine are a little smaller, I can get them done in a day or two. But I still need to get crackin'.

jaybird said...

39 here! i have a busy weekend ahead so i won't be getting many more done till next week.. but i like how it is coming along so far!

JVC_Scout_Mom said...

I'm at 40-something, but I have all of the pieces cut for the remaining blocks.

Karen said...

I had to jump ahead and stopped at 100. I started putting mine together last week. Thanks for all of your inspiration;)

Cheryl said...

Since I am a late starter, I am way behind! But I look forward to being caught up this weekend!

Mushyhed said...

I just got caught up yesterday. I think I'll try to get to 70 this weekend. This has been really fun! Thanks for organizing it!

Emily said...

I'm stuck on 50 until after I move this weekend. Yuck! Would rather be sewing...

imquilternity said...

If it's day 46, then I've got 46 blocks made. I've been very disciplined about this quilt-along and that makes me happy! Guess I've got another 24 to go....

CJ said...

I am WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY behind! Silly me joined the Old Red Barn quilt along too and I am behind on that AND I have to go out of town this weekend. Maybe next week I can play catch up??? Love seeing your pile of blocks. I still don't know how you do it.

Lynn said...

Yeah - I'm at 46! No ufo here (at least I hope not). But it is getting harder to find 2.5 inch scraps from my scrap stash.

Karen L R said...

Hey, question here. Amandajean , you use lots of white fabric....how do you keep your quilts clean? Do you wash them often, or do they sit on shelves, or do folks wash their hands before using them, or what? (I'm always so dang practical...) BTW I am having such fun with this project. At 53, my first quilt along!

GloJoeSews said...

I finished 62 blocks then started oldredbarnco quiltalong. I've got to sew some blocks this weekend so I can stay on schedule!

Grey Cat said...

I've been at 70 for about two weeks now, but as I started laying them out, I discovered that I hated the color combinations in four of the blocks. They just weren't bright enough! So, technically, 74, but only the 70 that I like will be appearing in the top.

Cryssy said...

I'm at 38 so lots to catch up on. I tend to to four at a time so just a couple days to be caught up....assuming I get started...

Hincha's said...

WooHoo! I have 72 blocks made. Now I need to cut my sashing. I too started the Old Red Barn quilt a long too. I love quilt a longs. Thanks for putting this together. When does the next one start?

Deb said...

I haven't actually finished any... but I have about 70 in progress!!

jacquie said...

nada, zilch, zero..pathetic i know.

Andi said...

With the wedding and all, I decided not to join in.
I'm relieved too as I would have put too much pressure on myself to keep up.
But I'm loving seeing everyone's progress. There are going to be some really stunning quilts come out of this quilt along.
Good on you for organising it.
Thanks also for all the lovely comments on my blog.
I'm so lucky to have such wonderful craftswomen being a part of my quilty bloggy life.
Andi :-)

Jenny said...

I think I've managed 40 so far, must try and catch up this weekend!

comfortstitching said...

So that's 10 days to go! Looking forward to seeing how all your nine patches look laid out!!

nicolette said...

Still only 14 finished...
but 35 halfway )using another fabric) and another bunch is cutted...

Only 10 days... phew!

Eila said...

Hi!My name Eila from Finland. I'm at 54.

2ndAvenueStudio-Rachel said...

I have 50 Made and but haven't yet made any this week.
ohh lots to do I better get going..

LauraJ said...

I have 54 or something like that. I am making 99. All blocks with no sashing-so I need a little bit more. Must get to work!

Aimee said...

ugh, Amanda, I am so far behind!! I love the flickr pool though to live vicariously through everyone else's progress!

alice said...

I think I am almost there. I lost count. I am busy using some of my many to make a lap quilt for my sister-in-law. Thanks for the motivation.
Alice

berylthepearl said...

I am making my quilt a bit smaller than your, 8x7, and I have made all 56 and awaiting further instructions. I love this quilt, thanks so much.

Breezy Bree said...

Im not telling! Ive been lagging behind, nut hopefully by the time you finished your ten Ill be caught up......now to go and loose some children somewhere..........

Bison Girl said...

43 for me. This has been such a fun project :) thanks again for coordinating it. I'm going to be sad to see it end.

Jenny said...

I've made 73. I might make 7 more, but I'm worried it might look unproportioned and more square than rectangular. I'm eager to get to the next step though...

Stefanie said...

I think I'm in the low forties. I have squares ready to go for the new patches so it will go quick when I sit down to sew. I am so impressed with your Old Red Barn Co. quilt a long finish! I am getting close on that too. You said your dad was a farmer, does that mean you grew up on a farm, is that part of why you are so prolific? Just wondered...

Wendy said...

Love to see a stack of blocks!
Still kicking myself for not joining!
Hope you do another quilt a long soon - and I look forward to seeing your blocks all layed out!

Hillary and Cameron said...

I have made 38, but I only started 3 weeks ago.

Jeanelle said...

I ave all of mine completed and am looking forward to the next step.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE INSPIRATION!

amandajean said...

stefanie...i do believe that is exactly it. i did grow up on a farm and times that we weren't busy were rare-especially during the school year. it's extremely hard for me to sit still without doing something.

amandajean said...

Karen L R,

we do use our white quilts in our house. i don't wash them much more than any of my other quilts. i don't seem to have many problems keeping them clean...even with kids in the house. :)

pink pool noodle said...

I am not officially signed up for the quilt along, however I jumped on the bandwagon a few weeks ago. I have finished 72 nine patch blocks, and I alread have them in rows. I am going to work on it some more today!

Libby said...

Pretty Stack! I need to count mine and figure out how big i want to make it. I hand quilt so mine might be lap sized. Thanks for hosting this! Libby

MegVS said...

I am behind! Weddings and vacations are setting me back, but I still get some done here and there. It is fun!

Heather said...

this was such fun! i finished my blocks, sashed the top and had it ready for the border blocks. . . folded it up to keep the kiddos off of it and now I can't find it--where on earth could I have put it? Hmmm. Anyone else have these mommy-brain moments?

hetty said...

I have completed 46, so I'm right on schedule! I love this quilt along! Thanks so much!

A New Season said...

I have 70 and the sashing is in place and the top is finished. I joined the old red barn quilt along and have that top finished also. Being out of school for summer sure does free up some time for sewing. I hope to have finished both quilts before we go to camp this summer.

Michelle said...

Okay, I was hoping you would ask this after the weekend! I am at 20, but I have quite a few half finished.I have a weekend to myself so I am hoping to catch up.

Lisa Pisa said...

I made a ton the last few days to catch up so I am at 50 now. I guess I have more catching up to do than I thought though ;-)

Mandy at MaKC Creations said...

I am so not a one a day girl...that being said, I have 30 completed and another 20 cut, just waiting for me to sew them together.

Karen L R said...

thanks amandajean. and i need to remember that it will be just me and batman around most of the time next year......

JasonsMum said...

It just happens that I'm at 46. Hope to cut up the remaining ones this coming week.

Annie said...

I'm up to 50 - I'll get going again today now my school reports are finished.

elpf said...

42. I counted this morning. Feels like a long way to go still for me.

Sherry said...

I made several today & am up to around 50. Hope to get a few more made tomorrow. Have a great weekend!

Cindy said...

I got carried away the other day and finished making all of mine! Next I'll add the sashing. First I want to get caught up on the other quilt along. I am so happy that I have gotten back into sewing again! Thanks!

LoveBug Studios said...

I only have 35... I got a little bit ahead, then started to slack off... I am making two smaller quilts though, one from batiks, and another from scraps. I'll catch up this weekend!

Zeynep said...

76 and I decided to go for a queen size quilt. I need total 100 blocks. It has been such fun project.

imagrandma2five said...

I've got 50 done, whoo hoo! Hate to say this, but I hope not to see a 9 patch for a while after I'm finished with this quilt!

qltmom9 said...

I made 80 and sure enjoyed it. Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement. I'm waiting for you all to put sashing on. This was tremendous fun.~

Dianah said...

I'm at 46. I am a few behind. I am hoping to catch up today. I have to say thank you for the great project. It has been so fun cutting up scraps and remembering the projects they came from.

Kelly said...

I'm super happy to report that I'm at 4! I know, way behind, but it means that my sewing machine is finally set up in our new house, connected to power, and that I used it this weekend!

I've got the strips cut out for nine more, too.

I'll be blogging about them (and posting them to the Flickr group) later today.

Rebekah said...

I finally finished all 71 yesterday! I've got my bleached white muslin ready to be washed and I hope to get started on the top this weekend :)

littlebluecottage said...

I'm near 40 and so I need to get back into the swing of things. I'm looking forward to laying it all out!

Tina

Rose Marie said...

My blocks are all done and actually made 7 extra. I guess, I was having way too much fun. I'm doing a different layout with some applique .... but won't be doing anything with them for a while as I have way too much on the go and must finish some tops first.

NanaKaren said...

When I began this project (late), I decided to make 2 of each block, so now I'm up to 70+. Think I will keep going as I may make 2 quilts. We shall see though. It may be one large one!

I'm enjoying this a lot and it keeps me quilting, so that's what is important to me. Hadn't planned on making another UFO, though! LOL.

Karen

Sarah said...

I have just finished my 80th one tonight! I see I have done a few too many, oh well, it can never be too big. I'm a bit unsure how good my quilt will look with the white borders. I may have to wait and see how others have turned out, to convince me. Mine just looks funny laid out with borders, to me anyway. Of course I'm no expert, this is my first quilt.

Sandra H said...

Hey, you are not going to believe this. I have completed 72 9 patches! I am hoping for a queen size of this beautiful quilt. I also have so many more scraps to slice and dice (and sew). I have found scraps to projects I worked on years ago that just so happen to be hanging in the closet as UFOs. I must get busy with those. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the inspiration to create such a thing of beauty.

Sandra

imagrandma2five said...

I put the final borders on my quilt top yesterday. Hoo-ray, it's done, now off to the quilter. I'm putting a cotton batt in it so when it's washed it will shrink and look antique. This was such a simple quilt but so involved it took a while to do. But I really love how it turned out!
Thanks!
