Sew many quilt blocks!

I promised that I would share my many quilt blocks from the various BOM’s and QAL’s I’ve joined (it seemed like a good idea at the time), so here we go!

The Quilter’s Planner block for this month was so much fun, and I’m beginning to love them more when they’re all grouped together.  Remember, I’m making them two sizes smaller than the original 12″ block pattern.  So, mine are 6″ and 3″ finished.  Sew cute and tiny!

I’m making each  month’s block a different color of the rainbow.  The yellow block isn’t too exciting until you see it with the other blocks.  And we’re only on block 4!

This month’s Heartland Heritage block, the Posy block, was easy peasy.  I’m still loving this pastel color palette.  At the end of this BOM, I should have a sweet little baby quilt!

I’m playing catch up with the Vintage Sampler BOM that I’m co-teaching at The Granary.  I finished the two blocks from last month.  Now I need to start working on this month’s blocks.  I’m loving these blues so much!

Here’s a group of the blocks together.  I can’t wait to start assembling the sections.

And finally, I am up to date with the Patchsmith’s Sampler Sew Along.  I just completed Field Rose and Butterfly Garden. These blocks are so bright and fun.  I love the size, the straight forward piecing and the applique here and there.  These blocks are multiplying rapidly!

Whew! That’s a lot of quilt blocks for one month.  I’m still quilting baby Clara’s quilt.  It’s nice to have options when I walk into my sewing room!

 

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you’re having a wonderful week.

  1. I love your Vintage Sampler BOM blocks. Also love the blues. Can you tell me what fabric line it is from?

  2. Everything is beautiful! so many projects will be nice when finished in 6-12 months when the programs end and look what you accomplished in a year alone! I FINALLY decided to start on another BOM program and am playiing catch up now and i’m finishing up another BOM that comes to a close this week. Its a good skill building opportunity and for technique without being rushed to complete. Thanks for sharing your lovely work.i love the blues! 🙂

  3. Love seeing all your works in progress and the fun bright colors you choose! What is the background fabric you’re using on your Quilter’s Planner blocks? I really like how it makes your colors pop.

  4. These quilt-along blocks are all just wonderful! I actually did just buy The Patchsmith’s quilt-along book this week. I have not sewn a block, yet. However, I am like you, I enjoy making a decision on what to work on in my evenings and I know I will start some of those cute blocks soon.

  5. Julie I loved your blog this morning. I want to run to my sewing machine and start sewing. Beautiful blocks and great spring colors. It is a beautiful day in southwest Florida, 67 degrees and low humidity and my husband will be fishing so my sewing machine and I will bond today.

  6. Love your posts. You make it so interesting and fun. Your blocks are wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Keep going. ❤️

  7. You are truly inspiring and those colors in your first set of blocks are gorgeous! I need to jump in and try just one BOM!

  8. Julie, admiring your blocks, color choices AND perfect piecing with all those points. I struggle with them, pin, pin, pin. Would love to know how you do them. Then, another thing which lots of tutorials ignore, the pressing to achieve a flat block. I was taught embroidery by nuns when I was very little – the back has to look as good and NEAT as the front. So finishes are important to me, but some blocks are harder.

  9. Wow that’s a lot of blocks. They all look terrific and you seem to be enjoying the process and keeping up – that’s quite a feat.

  10. Glad you are enjoying the vintage BOM. I did it when it was first released. I became so frustrated by the instructions that I gave it up, pulled all the patterns from the monthly bags of fabric and added the fabric to my stash.

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
