Quiltblocks 100: Daily Practice

Happy New Year Everyone!

You wouldn´t know it from reading this blog, but I really did manage to make 1 improv quilt block a day for hundred days and post it on on Instagram, hashtag #quiltblocks100.

Working on a block each day, whether I felt like it or not, whether it was convenient or not, was an amazing experience. For one, I am a little proud that I stuck with it, I wasn’t so sure I had the discipline to do it. Second, I was surprised, how much gets done in this little time, when done daily. After all, I only spent about 15 to 30 minutes on each block. And finally, I did not think I would miss this daily project as much as I did when it was finished.

And this was the kicker: this little daily dose of creativity spilled over into other areas of life. It seems once you practice your creative muscle it does get stronger 🙂 Problem solving at work turned out much easier, or at least things flowed better. Who knows why?

In any event, this project was a wonderful experience and I’ll start a second project like this soon. More about that later.

In the mean time, I’d be curious to know if any of you have worked on a daily project? What were your experiences? Let us know in the comments!
