When I wrote this title I had an image flash through my head of one of those old-time Revival preachers dancin’ around on a stage, hands raised in the air, preachin’ with a drawl plus the added emphasis on the last syllable. You know what I mean, right?
“It’s-ah timmmmmmme-ah to get-ah workin’-ah on-ah our-ah quilt-ah blocksssssss-ah!! Yeeaaaahhhhhsssssssss!!! Praise Gawddddddd-ah!”
Ok, seriously, I’m not mocking. I grew up listening to that particular cadence from a few pastors. And every now and then it just tickles my fancy thinking about it. Enough goofiness from me! I just wanted to post my finished blocks-ah! Ok, I’m done now. For reals.
The week 6 Vintage Quilt Revival blocks:
And these are my quilted Skill Builder Ruler and Spools block. It’s been a while since I free-motion quilted the spirals and pebbles, so I have been practicing away in my gigantic notebook every evening. Starting to see some progress, finally!
I’m all caught up with the BOM’s now and ready to start working on the March stuff… Whew!
Are you participating in any BOM’s or sew-alongs?
If so, how are you doing with them? Having fun (I hope!)?
Linking up with Sukie — Don’t ya know who I am? for this weeks’ VQR blocks.

Great job, they look amazing. I love the quilted spools!
Free motion design must take ages to do!
These are awesome!!! I’m glad you are doing them since I don’t have time to right now, LOL!
I saw the Skill Builder course mentioned somewhere and followed the link. It just didn’t ‘catch’ me at the time. But, wow! now seeing your blocks and realizing it is not just pieced blocks, but also fmquilt as-you-go – I popped over and signed up. Hope I can fit it in my already bulging to-do list! Your fmq is great!
