BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Corn

Woooooohoo, it is officially fall! Okay, it’s just September 2nd, but whatever. It’s the last four months of the year and it is FALL SEASON. And we are kicking it off with a lovely corn on the cob!

You can go two ways with this one. Well, you can go infinite ways. I’m not going to judge you if you want to make pink corn. And I suppose blue corn chips must come from blue corn? But anyway - traditional yellow corn or ornamental Indian corn with all the fall oranges and browns. Or pink corn. Go for it.

I’m using a variety of Kona browns for the background fabric this time. I also use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler to trim my half square triangles.

And so… Did anyone else work on (or start) a BOM? Or a project broken into more manageable monthly pieces? Or a few blocks for someone else’s charity project? Link up here or at What a Hoot!

BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Peas in a Pod

Okay, nobody panic - but this month, we’re adding a new “skill” to the Veggie Patch! And using up even tinier bits of scraps! Are you ready for this?

The Peas in a Pod block uses snowball blocks in addition to the usual half square triangles and scrappy squares. Don’t worry - they’re tiny and easy! The biggest thing to remember is contrast - the dark green scraps should be much darker than the light green scraps to make the peas pop out of the pod. Or in the pod. You know what I mean.

BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Jalapeño

Welcome to summer! In honor of it being hot - hot - hot - it’s jalapeño time! Seriously, we had a wet May and June (full of tornado warnings), but now it’s officially hitting 100º on a regular basis. And by regular, I mean daily. Before noon. Ugh.

So the block! It’s another easy one, just a few scraps. Because no one wants to be next to the hot iron very long this time of year. But you can mix up the colors - jalapeños come in red, green, yellow, orange, deep purple… You’ll need more than one for the final quilt layout, or you can make a few and have a summer BBQ table runner in no time!

BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Squash

Ah, summer time - time for summer squash! And your summer squash quilt block!

The best part about summer is how little cooking I actually have to do! Just marinate the chicken, toss the veggies in a grill basket, and hand it over to my husband. Twenty minutes later, he returns with grilled squash, grilled chicken, grilled whatever else. And we eat so many more veggies, because they’re just better off the grill!

And the squash quilt block is almost as easy! Just yellows, a bit of green, just a few half square triangles, and voila - a nice summer treat.

BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Onion

All right, y’all - don’t cry! It’s just the onions…

Sniff, sniff, weep. Okay, now that we got that out of the way!

This was a fun one to use some of the creams that are a bit more floral-y, so they don’t end up in the Quilts of Valor scrap bin. Although there’s no real reason why they couldn’t - who’s really going to check if there’s a wee bit of flowers on that 2” square? So after I made this block, the cream scraps got dumped into the QOV bin.
