September went by in a blink! All things considered, I’m pleased w/my productivity. However, sharing and writing about it is a whole other story. Alas, here are my September BOMs and there’s a peak of the 4th project from My Quilty Bucket at the end of this post!
These srappy blocks are from a sew along I’m doing w/my friend Madonna (@sunnybunnyquilts on IG). However, she’s already made a complete quilt w/her Criss Cross Stars. Isn’t it lovely?! And she’s just about ready to put her Cross Plus blocks together.
Meanwhile, I’m still plodding along. Here are my Criss Cross Star blocks. I make 3- 4/month.
My plan for these is to put them on point with cornerstones and sashing for a king size quilt but I have no idea how many blocks I’ll need for that and I no likey the quilty math. These are 9″ blocks but let’s say they’ll end up 8.5″ after I trim them down to matching sizes. I want to use 2″ sashing and 2″ cornerstones. If there’s anyone out there who is a whiz at quilty math, PLEASE tell me how many of these Criss Cross Star blocks I need to make. I’d really appreciate it!
And here are my Cross Plus blocks. These are 15″ blocks and I’m making 36 of them for a queen size quilt for my daughter. I’m at 28 blocks so only 8 more to go!
This is block 10 of 10 for this year’s Build A Quilt. I totally forgot to add marigold splashes in this block but, oh well. All that’s left are the finishing blocks and borders, which I’ve already started on. Build A Quilt 5 starts in mid November. I’d like to have this quilt completed by then. We shall see what happens.
And last but not least is my Yellow Pineapple block for Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge.
Now for that peak at project #4 from My Quilty Bucket.
I pulled Bad Girl Quilt which is an awesome pattern by Southern Charm.
I fell in love w/this quilt pattern when I saw Kathy’s version (@ibtreerock on IG) back in Jan 2019. So far I’ve finished 12 of 18 Andromeda Star blocks. I’m using Aboriginal fabric scraps given to me (at least 4 years ago), along w/varying tones of brown Grunge.
Well, that’s all folks! Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’!
A Thread for Life
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Soooo Your criss cross blocks – if you trim to 8.5 will be 8 inches in the quilt right? and with a 2 inch border…
to get a 98 x 113 inch quilt ( no outer border) – you would need 98 blocks I think ( that’s what my little calculator says)
I know I tell you this all the time, but you have such a distinctive aesthetic in the fabric prints and colors you choose and the way you combine them. I am especially struck by your Andromeda Star blocks in this post, which make me rethink my aversion to brown fabrics. Your style is never “cutesy,” always vibrant and strong and exciting — just like you!
