BFQ Update... on a Rainy Sunday :)

BFQ is the Byrum Family Quilt :)

I have been working on it steadily since my last post and stitched most every day.. I am now doing what I have called the "mosaic section"....

The area surrounding that inner border I just finished and inside the nautical border here on the outside as this was a pic I took once the center of the quilt was assembled :)

I decided to start at the top and have fun with this :) 
Here is one of the "beatitude" blocks I have quilted from the top section...
The actual "beatitudes" go down each side of the center section...

The fabric I cut those from had lots of alternate designs too ... so I chose some for the top and bottom to even it out and make this the mosaic section! lol

I will be quilting away on this today ... what are you up to and what is your weather like?

Have a blessed Sunday my crafty friends!

  1. Nice to see your progress...after a hot and humid week we had a cool front move in overnight so it is pleasant this morning :)

  2. You look like you will make your goal. Stitching everyday helps. We had a cool front come thru although it will still be pretty warm but we didn't get the rain we hoped for. More chances Thursday so hopefully it will then. Enjoy your stitches today!

  3. What wonderful progress you're making. When I left for retreat Friday morning, our highs were in the 90s. A storm front moved through Friday evening, and now the highs are in the 70s. Delightful!
