Bonfire Sampler Blocks

Boy, did I ever get behind on this one! The last time I posted about this quilt was way back at the end of March. For the last few months, these block have been getting pushed aside, but I really made an effort the last few weeks to catch up so I can exchange with Trina and Mindy next week.

The Bonfire Quilt is a Block of the Month QAL from GenX Quilters and works out of the book Sister Sampler Quilts. The book includes setting instructions for three sampler quilts total, as well as lots of blocks. You don’t have to have a partner to participate; many people are making two sister blocks and keeping them both for their own quilts.

Here are April’s Blocks, named Box and Star Frame

And Tulip Lady Fingers, our May Block.

As you can see, I am still catching up on two of these.

And lastly the June block, Friendship Star

WHOOPS!

Can I point out that sewing on only three hours of sleep is a bad idea, even if its just a simple pinwheel? My teenage daughter flat out laughed at me when I showed her this.

It was an easy fix, though!

Hopefully, I’ve learned my lesson and won’t be getting myself three months behind on a swap again any time soon!

This week, I’m linking up to:

  1. Looking great. It’s funny because I would never have listed those colours as ones I would like a quilt made out of but they look truly stunning …. isn’t colour such a funny thing in that way. I’ve taken the last few days to try to catch up with my Farm Girl Vintage blocks from the beginning of the year.
