lil orphan annieWait! Before you run and get your Lil’ Orphan Annie Decoder Ring… Here’s what the title means:

30/30 Sewing Challenge

Over at Berry Barn Designs there is a lot of excitement! Sarah has started a new challenge for the month of March.

Sew 30 Minutes
30 Days

Berry Barn Designs

I really long for quilting every day…it just never happens. Which is really hilarious because I really want to do a bit of housekeeping every day…it just never happens! Hmmmm.

Today is the day to show what I want to accomplish during the month. AND! it has to be for me. So goodbye Log Cabin: use some other minutes in my day! 

So here are my 3030SC:

1. The next thing up on my UFO list is quilting two quilts. Then there is finish a Lone Star that only needs one more corner square added. But what I really want to do is work on my Farmer's Wife blocks. I've made 94 blocks. I'm still trying to decide whether to make queen or king. I'm 17 blocks away from a queen and I'll make my decision then.

The photography on this isn't the best...I'd advise squinting or half closing your eyes, but that's what it looks like now. This was taken early into the making of the blocks; I have a lot more now.

Just for fun, here a few blocks that I've done.

To see other challengees, find badge on left column. Maybe you’d even want to join!


  1. Thanks for joining the challenge! It's nice to put aside the other stuff and just sew for ourselves sometimes : ) Looks like you have a great start on the Farmer's Wife quilt - can't wait to see pics of it all pieced when you decide how big to go!

    1. I'm excited to see how many I can make! They are time-consuming, but having a time set aside every day is very cool!

  2. Love your blocks!!! What is that last one called? Looks like something concealed in a snowball - oh, oh.
    I'm having a terrible time figuring out a pattern and color scheme for grandgirl's wedding quilt.
    got any suggestions?

    1. Yes, sometimes it's hard to tell what a block is supposed to be! It's called Kitchen Woodbox. I'm sure now you can tell what it is! I think double or triple Irish Chain is a great quilt. Courthouse Steps made into a quilt is beautiful too. As for color, both would be great scrappy (of one color or two) and wow. I also love two color quilts! I can't to see what you are going to do!


I love comments. They make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. To show you my appreciation, I try to answer everyone's comment. :)
