fish school from Making A Lather

 Bonnie Hunter has a new leader/ender project for the next year called fish school. I have officially declared easy breezy blocks done, so, I can take the challenge and start working on this project. Bonnie is using 2 inch strips and HSTS, but, I have too many 2 1/2 inch strips, so, I am going to use those. I have a hsts die that I can use to cut 6 at a time. I started cutting strips to 9 1/2 inches to fit that die.  I went through a drawer and cut 115. By calculations I will ...

postage stamp fun from Making A Lather

I hope to follow a plan for working on the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy this year.

1. grab color wire basket and sort

 I keep my fabric chunks in wire baskets by color. Some baskets are in tidy shape, others, not so much. yellow is very tidy and nearly empty.  I have a few boxes of scraps stored by color elsewhere. I pulled the yellow out and emptied it into the wire basket. It was still not full. I need to keep my eye out for yellow to purchase. But, I am in no hurry.

2. decide ufo ...

color blocks from Making A Lather

It was time to sort through my 2 1/2 inch strip drawer. The color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy is yellow. I wanted to make 16 patches in yellow 16 patch blocks for the Debby Brown color blocks quilt along, but, I only had 5- 2 1/2 inch squares to be found. I pulled out the shortest strips and cut squares. I really didn't count.

I had fun sewing them together. I had several repeats, but, they will be in various places in a quilt.

still in the pink from Making A Lather

Even with an extra Saturday in January, I did not get all my pink projects finished for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I am using my 2 1/2 inch squares to make 16 patch blocks for the Debbie Brown color blocks quilt along. I am making the blocks each month with the rainbow colors, and, then, deciding which blocks for which quilt at the end of the year. I wonder if a person can ever empty the 2 1/2 inch square bin.

I wanted to get started with full stop quilt that Angela is doing, but ...

windmill finish from Making A Lather

The last of my August one monthly goals for this year, is squeaking in just under the deadline. It was a mad dash to finish this quilt by the end of the month. I couldn't decide if I wanted to add borders or not. I added the borders. Then, I couldn't decide how I was going to do the binding. I haven't been as happy with machine stitching the bindings of late, so I was contemplating hand stitching again.

My Friday quilt group was meeting again, and I took it with me. I had the binding cut ...

wedding ring block from Making A Lather

Awhile ago, I mentioned that I had a bag of squares that were cut a little off. And, that, I would have to trim, and, cut for something new here. I made sets of the pieces I would need, and, then put them in a drawer. I forgot about them, until, I was checking for something and found them again. I was able to piece one lonely block. I am going to like them.

I couldn't fit another piece of 2 1/2 inch fabric into my temporary drawer. It wouldn't close. It was time to sort the ...
