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

April BOMs

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.

And last but not least is the April Build A Quilt/BAQ block.

That wraps up this post. Until next time, God Bless & 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. 2 Cor. 1:20-22NIV

February BOMs

Did February fly by as quickly for you as it did for me? Work was kinda crazy this month, then I went on vacation, then my older son came to visit and now February is just about over. Oh well, better late than never for my February BOM progress.

Here is block #4 of Build A Quilt.

Next up is my block for the Monthly Color Challenge hosted by Patterns by Jen. February’s color is Lemon/Bright Yellow. I really like how lemony my block turned out.

And these last two blocks are part of a monthly quiltalong I’m doing w/my in real life friend, @sunnybunnyquilts, who lives just a few miles away from me here in KC.

This Japanese X Plus Block finishes at 12″. I used this tutorial. I made smaller ones last month (they finishe at 7.5″) but I wanted to try bigger. I think this one is too big so next month I’m going for one that finishes at 10″.

And last but not least, my Criss Cross Stars block, a pattern by Lori Holt. This one finishes at 9″.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, God Bless & Happy Stitchin’!
