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

March BOMs

First up is my Build A Quilt block. After making it, I kinda wished I had used the marigold on these smaller squares, but it will stay as is.

Next up is my Monthly Color Challenge block. March’s color is Red Orange for Yams. This fabric combo brings to mind candied yams.

These first two X Plus blocks are 10.5″. It’s an okay size but I wanted to make a block that uses a lot of 3.5″ squares.

I don’t like quilty math but I actually did it and came up with these 15.5″ blocks. I plan to make my daughter a queen size quilt out of these scrappy blocks and if I use this size, I’ll only need 36 of them! I’m not super thrilled w/either of these blocks but I think when I mix them up w/some really gorgeous ones, I won’t dislike them so much. I felt the same way about some of my Scrappy Trips blocks but when they were all put together, it was total WOW factor!

And last but not least, the 9.5″ Criss Cross Stars blocks. This is a Lori Holt pattern/tutorial. This block is a my 2nd favorite to make after Scrappy Trips.

So that’s all the quilty sew & tell I have for you today. Until next time, God bless and Happy Stitchin’!

A Thread for Life

As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you,
and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
2Cor.6:1-2NIV
