August BOMs

This year is FLYING by! Not that I’m complaining but it is a challenge to keep up sometimes. I keep telling my kids, the older you get, the faster time moves. My middle son turned 31yrs just a few days ago and my youngest turned 26 yrs in June. They are catching up to me. =)

Without further ado, here are my August BOMs.

I’ll start w/my block for Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge. August’s food inspiration is mushroom and the color is brown. A nephew of a long time friend cultivates gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. There are so many species of mushrooms and they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. You can learn more about his Mushroom Kingdom here or check him out on IG @southwestmushrooms. It’s quite fascinating!

These are the fabrics that called to me for a mushroom block. And surprisingly to myself more than anyone else, I’m still going strong w/the 6″ block.

Next up is block 9 of 10 of Angela Walters’ Build A Quilt BAQ.

There were two options for making this block; templates or paper piece. I opted for paper piece. I really like how it came out!

And for the QAL I’m doing w/Madonna @sunnybunnyquilts, here are my Criss Cross Star blocks…

…and a Cross Plus block. I’m supposed to make 4 of these a month (my own rule for a self-imposed deadline) but I only had one completed by the time I drafted this post. But isn’t it fabulous?!

Stay tuned for my Christmas in July/August post as well as a post about a quilt challenge I entered.

Until next time, God Bless You and Happy Stitchin’!

A Thread for Life

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy 4:2-4 NIV

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

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
