This year is FLYING by! Not that I’m complaining but it is a challenge to keep up sometimes. I keep telling my kids, the older you get, the faster time moves. My middle son turned 31yrs just a few days ago and my youngest turned 26 yrs in June. They are catching up to me. =)
Without further ado, here are my August BOMs.
I’ll start w/my block for Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge. August’s food inspiration is mushroom and the color is brown. A nephew of a long time friend cultivates gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. There are so many species of mushrooms and they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. You can learn more about his Mushroom Kingdom here or check him out on IG @southwestmushrooms. It’s quite fascinating!
These are the fabrics that called to me for a mushroom block. And surprisingly to myself more than anyone else, I’m still going strong w/the 6″ block.
Next up is block 9 of 10 of Angela Walters’ Build A Quilt BAQ.
There were two options for making this block; templates or paper piece. I opted for paper piece. I really like how it came out!
And for the QAL I’m doing w/Madonna @sunnybunnyquilts, here are my Criss Cross Star blocks…
…and a Cross Plus block. I’m supposed to make 4 of these a month (my own rule for a self-imposed deadline) but I only had one completed by the time I drafted this post. But isn’t it fabulous?!
Stay tuned for my Christmas in July/August post as well as a post about a quilt challenge I entered.
Until next time, God Bless You and Happy Stitchin’!
A Thread for Life
Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy 4:2-4 NIV

Great blocks! I enjoyed surfing through the mushroom photos – so many colors, and varieties! Really liking the colors in your cross block! (Great verse, too!)
A great set of blocks. I especially like the Criss Cross Star.
Beautiful blocks. and um… pardon me – but your youngest son is now older than you!! oh ya!! that can really happen ha ha!!
Fabulous blocks, love your fabric mix as I always do, but OH MY GOODNESS — I would have believed me if you had told me that YOU just turned 31! If you were selling Youth Serum, I’d be lining up to buy it by the case!! 🙂
