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!
