project box from Making A Lather

Last week was a workshop with our quilt guild. Our resident quilt queen had agreed to teach her 2 nd last time 4 patch posey class. I needed to find the two I had already started, to take and finish at the workshop. I, certainly, did not need to start another one with the class, but, it was a committed time to work on finishing. I went through every ufo bucket twice and no luck finding it. I gave it one more try Friday night, and found the bucket. All my buckets are labeled, why was it so hard to ...

The Plan B X & + Quilt from Jan's Quilts


About 10 days ago, I made these sashing blocks, .  They were for another project that I decided to forego.  But, I had all of these blocks and I decided I needed to come up with a Plan B


Plan B involved some X and + blocks, 12 to be exact.  Then I made some 4-patch cornerstones.


Today, I assembled the first four 20" blocks that will be part of the Plan B quilt.  I discovered that I don't have enough of the sashing blocks, so that will be my next step.   Many of my quilts are "organic" and this one ...

old world mystery 2 from Making A Lather

Today, Quilted Twins. released clue 4 for the old world country fantasy mystery. I have finished clue 2, so, I am a little behind. But, I am still feeling confident that I can keep with the schedule. So far, the clues have not seemed overwhelming or difficult. I chose this colorway, but there is a gray and royal blue colorway as well.


The light squares were made using pieces I had cut wrong for my Lucy's basket quilt. They were the right size.


This was clue one

Old world mystery from Making A Lather

I cut the strips I would need for the first step of the old world country fantasy mystery from Quilted Twins.


We spent the evening in the living room watching television and I didn't want to go upstairs to my sewing room, so, I decided to treadle the seams. It isn't as fast but, it gets the job done.


It didn't take long before I had the first clue done.


This is Becky's first mystery, and I was really looking forward to making it. I like her quilts and wanted to try something new. I had ...

Partially pieced from The Academic Quilter

Hi everyone! How is your week going? I don't mind telling you that it's been fairly good here for the past little while. It has been unseasonably warm and mostly just lovely outside. I spent last weekend at an academic conference in Washington DC without a coat. In January. It was so nice that a couple of us skipped out on the afternoon session and went sightseeing-- and we walked. It was awesome. The conference might have been okay, too. At least my paper was!

So now I'm home and I have a ton of work to ...
