This is block 8 of 10 for Build A Quilt (BAQ). It’s almost time to start assembling the quilt!
This is my Monthly Color Challenge block. July’s food/color is Lime/Green. I’m making the 6″ version and the smallest blocks to cut were 3/4″. I was one of the randomly chosen 2nd quarter winners in this challenge. I won a queen size package of Warm & Plush batting!
My 15″ cross plus blocks.
And lastly, my 9″ criss-cross star blocks.
And that’s all folks! Until next time, God Bless & Happy Stitchin’!

I pray that out of his glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:16-21NIV
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’!

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
Happy Spring Y’all! It’s gorgeous here in Missouri, even if I don’t have pics to prove it. I do have this pic of a snowstorm we had on 4/20/2021 though.
Even though it was a lot of snow and coming down real good, it didn’t stick to the streets or walks AND it was completely gone and sunny by that afternoon. If you gotta have a Spring snowstorm, we couldn’t have asked for a better one.
This month I’m starting w/the blocks from a personal monthly sew along I am doing w/my in-real-life-friend Madonna, here in Missouri. We’re making scrappy Cross Plus and Criss-Cross Star blocks. You can see her sunny, cheery blocks on Instagram @sunnybunnyquilts.
Here are mine. I FINALLY decided on a size and plan for my Cross Plus blocks. I’m sticking w/the 15″ block and doing a controlled scrappy w/dark backgrounds. They will become a queen size quilt for my daughter’s birthday in January.
I went ahead and cut out all the corner and background blocks last weekend.
And here are my two Criss-Cross Star blocks.
Next is the Monthly Color Challenge block. April’s food/color is Cherries/Red. This is the 6″ block which turned out waaaaay better than I thought it was going to.
That wraps up this post. Until next time, God Bless & Happy Stitchin’!

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. 2 Cor. 1:20-22NIV
