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.
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’.

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
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’!
