November BOMs + A Flimsy!

I hope y’all had a Happy & Joyful Thanksgiving! My son came over and we enjoyed spending the day together. I’m amazed at how quickly time flies and cannot believe that 2021 is almost over! But I continue to stitch and pray, pray and stitch.

With this being said, here are my November BOMs.

First up is my Blueberry block for Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge. I actually had blueberry fabric!

Next up are my final four cross-plus blocks. I now have thirty-six, 15″ blocks, enough to make a queen size quilt for my daughter. Her birthday is in January and my plan has always been to complete it by then, BUT my longarm, Esperanza, is currently out of order. If I don’t win the APQS Millie Giveaway on December 10, 2021, I’ll be taking Esperanza to Missouri Sewing Machine Co . I’ve been entering that contest daily, like clockwork.

Here’s some scrappilicious goodness to ogle. I adore scrappy quilts and this one is going to be fantastic!

Build A Quilt 5 (2021-2022) is underway! I chose this Holly Jolly colorway. I am not a fan of the color pink but there’s something about Holly Jolly that makes me smile.

Here’s my block one. Isn’t it a stunner?!

BAQ registration is open until the end of the year so if you decide to join after seeing my stunning block, please use me as a referral!

And speaking of Build A Quilt, here’s my BAQ 4 flimsy! I really like the pops of marigold! I also improvised w/the grey borders around the four blocks. I thought I had used all of the dark grey fabric in the challenge quilt I made, and it wasn’t until after this flimsy was completed that I found the grey fabric that came w/this collection. Oh well.

I started quilting this flimsy w/Angela’s suggested quilting diagrams, and about 1/3 way through is when Esperanza started acting up. *sigh*

That’s all I got for you today. Until next time, Happy Stitchin’ & God Bless!

October BOMs

This post is short & sweet. I made my last Build A Quilt/BAQ block last month and since I was working on a deadline to finish my granddaughter’s b-day quilt, I only did the Cross Plus blocks and the Monthly Color Challenge block this month.

Here are my scrappy Cross Plus blocks. I only have 4 left to make after this and then I can start constructing the queen size quilt for my daughter.

And this is my block for Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge. This month’s color is pink for pink grapefruit. My light pink is so pale it looks white.

And that’s all folks! Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’!

A Thread for Life

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24 NIV

Monthly Color Challenge

A Creative Challenge

I believe it was during the July 2021 Build A Quilt meeting that Angela announced a creative challenge. These were the rules and the prizes. Even though participating in this challenge meant deviating from My Quilty Bucket projects and my BOMs, I decided to go for it.

The Oops Kit consisted of 5.5″ x 42″ strips of each of the nine fabrics in the color way. Here it is cut up w/the my additional 1 yard of fabric; three 12″ x wof strips of contrasting colors. That marigold w/the flowers was going to be my binding for the Build A Quilt quilt. I’ll either have to use something else or take a trip to Quilters Station in Lee’s Summit. It’s only 30 minutes from me.

This block was my prototype, though it was made with just 3 fabrics. I think it will be a lovely patriotic table topper.

And this is my finished quilt. It measures 36″ square.

Imagine how excited I was to get this message in my inbox!

Needless to say, I’m one happy camper!

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’!
