November BOMs + A Flimsy!

I hope y’all had a Happy & Joyful Thanksgiving! My son came over and we enjoyed spending the day together. I’m amazed at how quickly time flies and cannot believe that 2021 is almost over! But I continue to stitch and pray, pray and stitch.

With this being said, here are my November BOMs.

First up is my Blueberry block for Jen’s Monthly Color Challenge. I actually had blueberry fabric!

Next up are my final four cross-plus blocks. I now have thirty-six, 15″ blocks, enough to make a queen size quilt for my daughter. Her birthday is in January and my plan has always been to complete it by then, BUT my longarm, Esperanza, is currently out of order. If I don’t win the APQS Millie Giveaway on December 10, 2021, I’ll be taking Esperanza to Missouri Sewing Machine Co . I’ve been entering that contest daily, like clockwork.

Here’s some scrappilicious goodness to ogle. I adore scrappy quilts and this one is going to be fantastic!

Build A Quilt 5 (2021-2022) is underway! I chose this Holly Jolly colorway. I am not a fan of the color pink but there’s something about Holly Jolly that makes me smile.

Here’s my block one. Isn’t it a stunner?!

BAQ registration is open until the end of the year so if you decide to join after seeing my stunning block, please use me as a referral!

And speaking of Build A Quilt, here’s my BAQ 4 flimsy! I really like the pops of marigold! I also improvised w/the grey borders around the four blocks. I thought I had used all of the dark grey fabric in the challenge quilt I made, and it wasn’t until after this flimsy was completed that I found the grey fabric that came w/this collection. Oh well.

I started quilting this flimsy w/Angela’s suggested quilting diagrams, and about 1/3 way through is when Esperanza started acting up. *sigh*

That’s all I got for you today. Until next time, Happy Stitchin’ & God Bless!

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’!
