boxy star finish from Making A Lather

 I am happy to report I have the quilt  done for boxy stars in yellow and black. I started this in 2016 to use a jelly roll.  I have worked on it as part of the rainbow scrap challenge this year. February's color is yellow. This is an older UFO that would not make it into the top 10 quilts I want to finish, but, still needs some attention. It is good to clean out some of these types of UFOs. I started the month with the blocks already made, and I needed to assemble the top and quilt ...

snow and stars from Making A Lather

 Like everyone else in middle America, we have snow. Our county received 9 inches overnight. It was beautiful and fluffy everywhere. And the prediction is for more over the weekend.

What a great opportunity to sew uninterrupted. I feel for those without power. Although, I have a people powered treadle machine, light to see by, requires electricity.

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 ...

making more blocks from Making A Lather

 I have some blocks I have been working on. Other than that, I am still in a decision phase of finishing my February projects. And I need to cut some yellow scraps.

I think I have decided to add a border to my boxy stars quilt - Bonnie Hunter free pattern. I think it will work with a fabric I had in my stash.

to do: boxy stars from Making A Lather

My small quilt group met Tuesday. I was eager to unbox an older ufo that I plan to finish for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. My list said I had the blocks done. And so it was. I knew I would have a little floor space to lay it out to decide how I wanted to finish it. I took a piece of fabric with me in case I wanted to use it for sashing. I am not a big fan of sashing. Sometimes, there is a great secondary pattern that disappears with sashing. And it takes forever ...
