December BOMs +Another Flimsy!

Can y’all believe 2022 is less than 24hrs away?! Where does the time go? We can all attest that it waits for no one! With that being said, I just celebrated my half-century birthday on December 16th. And I had a party! If it wasn’t my first birthday party ever, I can’t remember ever having another one. I hosted an ornament exchange party with about a dozen friends. It was so much fun and delicious! Here’s a pic of the birthday girl.

And here’s a close-up of a “dirty” snowman cheeseball that Madonna made. He was delicious!

Now on to quilty matters. Here’s the last block in Jen’s 2021 Monthly Color Challenge. The color was olive, inspired by….olives.

And this beauty is block 2 of Build A Quilt 5 (BAQ). I’m so smitten w/these Holly Jolly fabrics!

And last but not least…my crossplus flimsy! What do you think? My daughter’s b-day is Jan 16 but Esperanza needs to go into the shop. So the way things are looking now she probably won’t get her quilt until my February trip to Phoenix for Quiltcon 2022. Sadly, I did not win the APQS giveaway, but CONGRATS!! to Diane M. of Texas!

And speaking of QuiltCon 2022, will you be there? I’m planning to spend at least 1 day at the show with a few local friends, but I am not taking any classes or lectures. Let me know if you are going, it would be fantastic to meet IRL (in real life)!

Monthly Color Challenge

July BOMs

This post will be short and sweet.

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’!

A Thread for Life

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

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
