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

My Quilty Bucket R1P3

Round 1, Project 3 = HRTs

After sorting/refolding fabric several weeks ago, I pulled my next project and got a Wildcard. A Wildcard means I can make whatever I want that’s not already in My Quilty Bucket or I can pull from the bucket again. I only thought about it for a very little while and couldn’t think of any other project I wanted to make just then, so I pulled again and ended up w/an HRTs ufo which consists of Half Rectangle Triangles that my friend Katy cut for me w/her Accuquilt Studio 2 when I visited her in Michigan in Aug 2017.

I probably should’ve thought on a Wildcard project a little longer and maybe had a looksee on Instagram before I decided to pull another project because this FPP Heart pillow that Madonna made is so lovely! I know better for next time.

The HRTs have been in a shoebox since I returned from my visit in August 2017.

When I opened the shoebox I was delighted to find some other Grunge fabric I forgot I had. I kinda remember adding it to the box after I returned, intending to send it to Katy to cut. I decided to incorporate most of it into the quilt.

I didn’t really have a plan…just made it up as I went along.

And this is what I ended up with.

I did lots of practice FMQ on it.

I decided to give it to my youngest son so I added some Denver Bronco fabric to the back since he’s a big fan. This pic is before warshing.

And this is after, in all its crinkly wonder.

And here are a couple close-ups of my favorite grids of quilting.

I have one more finish to share as well. I recently started a Quilt & Craft Fellowship at my church. We gather the 2nd Saturday of each month and bring whatever crafty projects we’re working on.

This was my “traveling” project. The strippy HTSs are cut-offs, or bonus pieces, from a quilt I made for one of my nieces last year. This quilt with the cute kitty backing will be gifted to my youngest granddaughter on her 5th birthday in August.

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

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop?

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
