Welcome to Month 2 of the Barn Quilt BOM by Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting. On the first Wednesday of each month for a total of six months I will make the block for that month post photos and suggestions right here on my blog. I will also post on the Powered by Quilting Quilters Group Facebook page and on Instagram (#janda_bend_quilts). This month, a bonus, I am posting my version of the completed Mini Quilt 1 as well. This mini quilt is made from 4 blocks of Block 1 and 4 blocks of Block 2. See my Block 1 post for more about Block 1. However, I am getting ahead of myself.
I am so excited to participate in another Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along. This time we are making the Blog Remix 2: Sewing Machine Accessory Pouch!
Sew excited! Today is the first month of Sherry Shish's Barn Quilt BOM Quilt Along! Sherry @Powered by Quilting and I both belong to Partners in Design, which is a group of bloggers and quilt designers who enjoy working together. As a group, we have designed three quilt alongs. You can read about them here. When Sherry asked me to participate as a host in her BOM, I happily said yes.
Here it is my completed quilt top. I decided to enhance my Salem Quilt Guild fabric theme by adding printed blocks cut from Meg Hawkey's coordinating panel from the same line at Crabapple Hill Studios. I really like the airy feel of separating the blocks with a light tone on tone fabric.
Block Lucky 13 is released for the Sew Let's Quilt Along Mystery Quilt and it is mine!
It is called, "Who's Got the Thimble?" and is based on a game from my childhood. Do you see where one Thimble is missing from the shelf?
Block 12 of the 2019 Mystery Quilt Along is Rotary Cutter by Sandy Maxfield @ SandyStar Designs. The Sew Let's Quilt Along is brought to you by Partners in Design. The Rotary Cutter definitely deserves its own block because it has revolutionized quilt making!

We have now released all of the blocks for Segment 2. Wow I can't believe that we have only one segment left! This post will remind you about how to enter for the Segment 2 prizes and will show you where to go for small project ideas.
I am a quilter who is starting a new adventure. After retiring in May 2016, I became a certified Quilt in a Day Instructor. I am certified to teach workshops using Quilt in a Day patterns and techniques. In addition, I am designing my own quilt patterns.
