green scraps from Making A Lather

The color for the rainbow scrap challenge for January is bright green. Last year, the month of green, I didn't really do a look through the basket. I knew I needed to pull everything out, and sort through, to discover what hidden treasures I might have in the basket. My original plan was to cut everything into useable sizes. But, after it was neat and tidy, I didn't want to cut it.


After a good night's sleep, I was ready to cut again. I cut 3 1/2, 2 1/2, 2, and 1 1/2, and ...

mini template round 2 from Making A Lather

I went to a geneology workshop last night and feel motivated to try a little harder to search through my family history. I know it can be important to my Grandchildren who never knew my family. They were all gone by the time they were born. That is what happens to a late in life daughter of a late in life daughter of a late in life daughter. And Yes, I had a late in life child, even though I swore I wouldn't. It's a blessing and a curse......
Playing with the new mini pineapple ruler is addictive ...

mini template from Making A Lather

This just arrived in the mail, and I am really excited to try it. It is the mini version of the pineapple template I have been using.


The center square is 1 1/2 inches.


And round one is 2 1/2 inches. I don't really have time to work on these right now, but they are a fun distraction. I haven't even started the mystery quilt, yet.


I had no intention of ever going smaller with the pineapple block, until, I saw this quilt at the Indy quilt show. It said it was made with the mini ...

pineapple blocks from Making A Lather

It was time to start a few more pineapple blocks. The ones I had been working on had reached the size I wanted. I try to keep a few going so that I will remember how to make them. I don't like that I have to reacquaint  myself if I wait too long to work on them. These blocks started as a gifted bag of scraps more here.


The second row is easy to trim. I can cut both sides before I move the template.


I am ready for the neutral row.

Oatmeal Raisin : Perfect 5 Quilt Along from Samelia's Mum

Welcome to my stop on the Perfect 5 Quilt Along featuring the new book 'Perfect 5 Quilts' by It's Sew Emma and the 5" Creative Grids Ruler.




The Perfect 5 Quilts book is filled with 16 quilt patterns, all based on the humble 5" charm square. Charm Packs were one of the first specialty precuts to appear in quilting stores. Charm packs deliver a variety of fabric prints/colours usually within a fabric collection. They're versatile, great for making quick projects and I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't resist adding a charm ...

pineapple template from Making A Lather

I have been anxious to pull out the pineapple project bin, and get back to making these blocks.
I was also worried that I wouldn't remember how or what I was doing.
This is the kind of quilt that makes scraps so much fun.


I am using the creative grids template which makes it easy to remember what I need to do.


I had 4 blocks I was working on at a time and they are now trimmed and ready for the next round.


I thought I would try to find the mini pineapple ruler in the wild, until ...
