June BOMs

June has been an extremely busy and challenging month on the work front it’s a wonder I’ve gotten any sewing done.

Alas, in addition to working on the 3rd project from My Quilty Bucket, I did get most of my June BOMs made.

First up is the Build A Quilt block #7. The marigold is not officially part of the Stay Wild colorway, it’s my personal touch. I am not thrilled where I added it in the last three blocks I’ve made, but oh well, I am not changing any of them. There are three more monthly blocks, (Angela’s Build A Quilt projects consist of 10 blocks) and then it will be time to start working on the rest of the layout and putting it all together.

June’s Monthly Color Challenge is Pumpkin/Orange and this is my 6″ block.

I don’t have any Criss Cross Stars to show in this post but I quite like these two cross plus blocks. =) These blocks are part of a sew along I’m doing w/Madonna (@sunnybunnyquilts on IG).

That’s all I’ve got for “sew & show”. Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’.

A Thread for Life

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 1 Corinthians 1:20-22 NIV

Monthly Color Challenge

May BOMs

We had a “bye” month at Build A Quilt/BAQ, which means no May block, but I do have layout options to show you. I’ve chosen Layout 1.

Here’s my May block for the Monthly Color Challenge hosted by Patterns by Jen. The food is potatoes and the color is, you guessed it, brown! Surprisingly, I’m still going strong w/the 6″ blocks.

And last by not least are the blocks from the sew along I’m doing w/Madonna (@sunnybunnyquilts).

My 9″ Criss Cross Star blocks.

And my 15″ Cross Plus blocks. I made quite a bit this month in order to get “caught up”. My goal is to have 36 blocks by October, which will give me ample time to get the top pieced & quilted for my daughter’s January birthday. Now I just have to make 4 a month.

Until next time, God bless & happy stitchin’!

A Thread for Life

Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:34-36

Monthly Color Challenge

My Quilty Bucket R1P2

Round 1, Project 2 = Chevron Quilt

I pulled this project on Apr 25, 2021. It’s for a friend who has waited patiently for a quilt for quite sometime.

She didn’t have a specific pattern in mind but her favorite color is blue. Ever since I’ve been thinking on a quilt for her, I’ve wanted to incorporate this cream w/blue & brown circles. I didn’t have much of it and wanted to use every inch of what I had. It turned out I had just enough to make one chevron stripe in this quilt.

I had all the HSTs cut out in a matter of minutes thanks to this die and my AccuCut GrandeMark 2 which is identical to the Accuquilt Studio 2.

This quilt went together so quickly!

I had it on the frame in no time.

I even felt brave enough to quilt it with a Flower Meander motif that Angela Walter teaches in this video, which I did from edge to edge.

Ta-da! It’s not perfect, but it’s finished! And when I warsh it, all the quilting imperfections will disappear into crinkly goodness.

After I finished this quilt, I decided to tackle sorting my fabric by color. Here’s a before pic.

And here’s my after pic. It looks so much better and the stacks are a uniformed width. I’m very happy with it. Now all I have to do is keep it in order. Eeek!

That’s all I have to share on the quilting front. Until next time, God Bless & Happy Stitchin’!

A Thread for Life

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.– Romans10:9-11NIV
