Mayflower and All 331 Blocks

I've already made one of these ship blocks, and I can confirm that because I went through all my blocks yesterday and made a nice stack.  The good thing about this block is that it is cute and there are not a lot of pieces...it would make an adorable quilt for a little boy.  This is number 331 of 366 and it is an 8-inch block.


Now for the massive stack of quilt blocks.  Ever since I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had all my quilt blocks stacked by our computer and the internet repair lady commented on them, I have received numerous requests to see the "stack."  There was no way I was going to show you the pile the way it was because each night I would just put the last one finished on the top...and it was kind of messy.  So I decided I would sort them all by size and see just how big this adventure has been.


Here they are...my son helped me measure it and the entire pile is 26-1/2 inches tall.  Most of the blocks are 9, 10, and 12 inches, but of course there are a lot of other "odd" sized blocks.


It was fun going through them all...and the last 35 will be put in their proper place.  :)  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

That Mayflower block would make a cute boy's quilt. I'll have to keep it in mind for my scraps.

What are you going to do with your pile of blocks?

I don't think I've ever seen a stack of blocks that high! What are you going to do with them all? I admire your stick-to-it-ive-ness.
