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!

Get the printer-friendly instructions here! The block will be free for a month until the next one posts - but don’t be too upset if you miss one. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hopatong Community Garden, so you’ll be helping a great cause run by one of my good friends.

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 {slightly} 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 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.

Mmm, that photo makes radishes look more delicious than they ought to be. Wait - no - we love veggies this year! Yay radishes! Great in salads! Smaller block so it doesn’t take as long to put together! Love them radishes!

BOMs Away - Veggie Patch Eggplant

Oooh, our first big one! The eggplant is longer than the last couple of blocks to accommodate its big butt…much like me. Except I don’t look near as good in purple!

This is the first time you don’t really have a color option! I suppose eggplants might come in different shades, but really - purple is where it’s at. Party on, purple.

I’m working on a set of quilts for the Lilac Day Parade in Spokane, so I’m drowning in purple scraps right now. It’s fun, but oh so not my usual color scheme! I never knew how hard it was to blend purples until I started buying for this.

But the eggplant - you can just throw any deep purple in there. In fact, some of my scraps are almost magenta. It all goes when it’s scrappy!
