A little rainbow sewing from Making A Lather

I have been feeling better every day, still, not very chatty. Yesterday,  I sat and sewed one seam in my sewing room. I have enjoyed looking through the pink scraps. I made a pink crayon, and 4 patches for woven checkerboard.


I had the chance to cut the alphabet letters that I needed in pink for the quote quilt. Once, I feel like really sewing again, it shouldn't take long to make them.

liberty sewing from Making A Lather

I did have a finish yesterday - yay me
I guess working on this quilt is the most blue sewing I have done this week for the rainbow scrap challenge. This is one of those "I didn't see it coming" projects. It isn't even on the list of important finishes I want to get done. But, once I sorted it out, I just had to keep working on it. I have been piecing the squares to go around the framed pieces and join them together.



I did put the point on the blue crayon - what an effort.


I made ...

blue crayon from Making A Lather

I didn't get much blue sewing done this week for the rainbow scrap challenge. I had a steroid injection in my back and it was fine, but stressing over it had me a little blah. I did sew a blue crayon together for the crayon quilt.


I started making little tulip blocks, just for fun. It is a new Bonnie Hunter pattern in quiltmaker magazine called blossom time. Each block requires very little thinking or fabric, so I grabbed a scrappy bucket and cut a few just to try. My only problem is borrowing little 4 patches from the ...

blue scraps from Making A Lather

My blue drawer hasn't been loved on in a long time. The color drawers we have already had for the rainbow scrap challenge are tidy, except green. I don't know what happened, but I didn't sort through the drawer.


I am glad it is time to sort through blue. I have noticed that even if I have an organizational plan in my color drawers, the minute I need something, it is toss and tumble.


first up for the rainbow scrap challenge and the dark blue month of June, is my flying home blocks. I had enough of ...

pineapple new round from Making A Lather

Yesterday was hijacked by my husband's heart and atrial fibrillation. They decided to shock him into rhythm. It was a long ordeal, and more waiting time than fixing time. It started in the morning, and, I thought we had circumvented the hospital by going to the doctor's office. Our doctor was out for the day, and his partner decided to be a bit more aggressive. So, we ended up spending a few hours in the hospital for a cardiac conversion.
He is much better and home. We have a million more medications and instructions, getting older isn't ...

rainbow scrap progress from Making A Lather

Orange is such a great color. It can look great hiding among other colors (fall colors ) or jump right out at you. Still, I don't have that much of it in my stash. hmmmmm
I did make 2 flying home blocks.


And, 5 woven checkerboard blocks


and an orange crayon.


Notice the green grass that I can use as a background for photos. I couldn't do that at the beginning of this year's rainbow challenge.

May one monthly goal from Making A Lather

My May one monthly goal is a the same as the April goal only taking the next steps. I have made it more challenging by upending my sewing room for a remodel. I am not sure why I picked this exact time to try something new, but, it is a big mess right now as we put everything to rights. I had no idea how many little containers of little scrap pieces I kept shoving to the back and ignoring.  The big change is turning the corner with an ikea table. I am going to really like the space to ...

aqua color? from Making A Lather

Aqua is the color for the month of April at the rainbow scrap challenge. I am not sure I know what aqua is. I am easily confused by turquoise, teal and aqua. my first inclination is that aqua is a lighter color than the other two. I found this online.

And I dug through the strip bins.


I guess for my projects it doesn't really matter, I can pick what ever color I want to use.
So, I have another crayon made.



And another wiggle row. But, that is as far as I got this week.

rainbow letters from Making A Lather

This is the last Saturday of March and the so scrappy and rainbow scrap challenge color of green. I feel like I made a lot of blocks and pieces for green, but, I didn't even go to the actual green bucket. I worked with 2 1/2 in strips, 2 inch strips and 1 1/2 in strips and different sizes of squares. I have more green than I thought. And I even started a whole new quilt here.
I did several letters for the quilts I am planning to use letters.




I finished a few church window blocks ...
