5 quilts November 22, 2021 from Making A Lather

We have spent the last few days cooking turkey. We decided to smoke one this year. I decided that if the price didn't drop below the price of a chicken, I wasn't going to buy it. We aren't having anyone for thanksgiving, so I would only buy one for the freezer. The price was good so Mr. Turkey is all safely gathered in for the winter. We have already had "leftovers" - sandwhiches - and soon, noodles. yum. I miss family thanksgiving dinners.

5 quilts November 15 from Making A Lather

 Hubbly and I attended a small quilt show in Indy Saturday, It was a great little trip that put us in Indy. It has been awhile since we have been to the "big" city and it was a bit overwhelming. The traffic and massively growing areas were surprising. We hardly recognized the place. 

We stopped at a quilt store that I enjoy, and I was sad to see the cost of fabric has really increased. There was no shortage of options, and the store was busy. Now that we are retired, we avoid most places on the weekend, so it ...

boho fall from Making A Lather

I am off to a quilt show in Fishers Indiana today. We have had cold rainy days, with one very nice day exception.  We have had such a pretty fall with yellow  leaves. Last year we didn't have much yellow. I don't know the whys and wherefores, but, I have loved the yellow this year. Most leaves are gone, but a few hang on a little longer.

I can share a few boho heart blocks today from our Friday group. None of these are mine. I may never catch up with the others.

Bohemian decor is a colorful ...

5 quilts report from Making A Lather

Here is my 5 quilts progress report.

1.checkered past -All the blocks are together and I am planning a piano key border. I can use the leftover bits and clean up some scraps at the same time. The sashing acts as the inner border.

2. fish school - this is a year long project for the quiltville leader/ender challenge. I am keeping up with a few each week. I have sewed all I had cut, so I need to cut some more. 

3. scrappy mountain majesties - I started the layout on the library floor meeting room. I took apart ...

Time to sew! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Super day alert!!! I accomplished a lot yesterday! OK -- not everything I should be working on, but that's OK - all progress is good!  

I tried printing something, and of course, my printer wouldn't work. So I'm going to attempt that again today! I swear, there are days when technology crashes on me, just to keep me humble! 

I am determined to NOT let any of those year-long classes become a UFO so let's see what happened. One of the projects is done, which you'll see when I post the show and tell. But one down ...

5 quilts from Making A Lather

It's time for me to plan the week and assess how I have done on my goals.  I have 5 quilts I am focusing on right now. I try to work on one task for each quilt at a time working through all five before moving on to the next set of tasks.

1.checkered past -The next step was to make 40 sashings. I sewed 1 1/2 inch creams to 1 1/2 inch shirt strips on the treadle. I pressed and subcut them to the size of the block. tada

But, then, I couldn't help ...

boho heart from Making A Lather

 I took pictures of our last Friday group - I don't always remember. Linda was missing. I believe we are on week 7 of Boho heart. I have just finished week 4. I am not a big fan of making one block at a time. I prefer chain piecing - start sewing and keep going.

Sue's red and purple version

My rainbow version

We have been harvesting longevity spinach. This is new to us this year. And it is a prolific plant. Nothing killed it. And it didn't bolt like regular spinach.  We didn't like it cooked plain ...

boho heart QAL from Making A Lather

 We have been making progress on our Jen kingwell boho blocks. Our Friday group is working together on this quilt as a QAL. Sue and Linda have kept up each week with the assignments. The rest of us are in various stages of behind. I just finished week 2 completely. We are on week 5.


my daughter's block

We made these separately. Linda is working from her "wild" box and I am doing mine in rainbow stripes. Funny, how each of our blocks looks very much alike.

boho heart start from Making A Lather

Oh, and by the way, I won the jelly roll race, Saturday, with my border attached to sea swept.

I mentioned earlier that my Friday group is working on Jen Kingwell's Boho Heart quilt together. Our first assignment was to do the 10 inch offset dresden and all the 2 inch 4 patches. They still need to be trimmed.

Sue is mostly reds and purples

Linda is wilds

I still needed to applique the center and trim the block.

me - rainbow colors

Our second assignment was the two gardenvale 10 inch blocks and all the 4 inch pinwheels.

Sue ...

Zoom, zoom, zoom from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 It was a bit of an intense day. Lots of Zoom and more frustration with UPS. 

I'm beyond frustrated with UPS. After another lengthy conversation and being on hold several times, the conclusion is that customs is sitting on the package. Of course, they are off for the weekend, so nothing will happen until Monday morning at the earliest. I've spoken to a supervisor who wasn't really any more helpful than the CSRs. I'm supposed to get a call from the brokers on Monday morning. Let's pray - a LOT. 

Yep -- I could definitely have walked ...

tiny orange scraps from Making A Lather

I had one lonely aqua 16 patch color block from last month for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.

then, I worked on 4 psp 20 blocks in this month's color - orange. I am amazed at how many different oranges there are, but, I was also surprised how few oranges of any size, I have left in the scrap bins.

My Friday group has started making Boho heart by Jen Kingwell. I am doing it in rainbow colors. Part of the fun of a group project is seeing how different all of our hearts will be when finished ...

All in a Row Show and Tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Another pretty productive day! I'll share all the stuff with you next week as I'm going through the show and tell before I forget about it! 

I worked on the All in a Row quilt for THREE days when we were at the retreat. Yep, I was that far behind, and one of the rows was a LOT of work. I'm still not quite as caught up as I'd like to be, but I'm working on it! OK -- so I'm NOT working on it at the moment. I have a few other pressing things ...
