Last year I participated in a sew-along with my local quilty BFF, Madonna. Every month we’d make some scrappy blocks and share them via Instagram on the 4th Saturday of the month.
This Cross Plus quilt is a finish from that sew along. I made this scrappilicious quilt for my daughter’s birthday. It was about 5 weeks late, but she loves it!
Her cat loves it too!
Katy quilted it for me…and even blogged about it. 😁
Next up is my Stay Wild Build A Quilt (2020 -2021 4th annual) finish. Build A Quilt is Angela Walters’s version of block of the month. I enjoy BAQ immensely. I’m currently on my 3rd BAQ, but it’s Angela’s 5th Annual. Do you see my little beastie photobomber? His name is Moe.
My long arm locked up when I was almost half way through this quilt. I took it off the frame and attempted to try to finish it on my domestic. I didn’t get very far before I hated what I did. I begged Katy to finish it for me and she obliged. Thanks Katy! 🙏🏼 I have since got Esperanza serviced and she is stitchin’ again.
Speaking of long arms, APQS is giving away another Millie! Apparantly they give one away at least 2x a year. I’ve been faithfully entering everyday.
And last but not least is a baby quilt for my new grand niece. I call it a jellyroll remix. I used various sized 1.5” strips, and quilted it with a simple meander. I really like how it turned out!
The backing is a vintage piece I got from Katy. It worked perfectly!
And that’s a wrap! Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, God bless and happy stitchin’!
A Thread For Life
“People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.”– DA Carson

All of your quilts are beautiful! I especially love the plus/cross quilt. While reading Katy’s post I noticed that I have several of the fabrics you used in my stash also – she’s right you have an amazing gift for combining fabrics!
Such pretty quilts! Love that scrappy cross with all those lovely colors! You’ve been busy!
Love your finished X + quilt!!! So good you gave it to your daughter and she is using it!!! Great productivity with 3 finished quilts!!!
All of these quilts are beautiful but I must say, I am really smitten with the color palette you chose for your baby grand niece. Not the typical “baby colors” at all, but I bet the new mama is going to love it! Glad to hear Esperanza is all fixed up again, but I totally think you deserve to win the APQS giveaway. I wish we could all enter on your behalf!
These are all so beautiful! Love that I got to work on some of these. 😊
