phd 2021 from Making A Lather

I have had a hard time this year setting goals for next year. Maybe, because it has been an uncertain year. And yet, I finished the most ufo projects I have ever done in a single year. Now, that I think of it, I might be tired of finishing, but, I have many more to finish. I am not sure how to find the balance between finishing to accomplish, and starting new to enjoy. The more I stick to a list, the less I quilt.

Still, I've made my list for next year and the PHD 21.

1. Double ...

Christmas Weddings 17, 18, 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Sadly Christmas is over, but I had better start planning for the next one … it will arrive before i am ready like always. Hope your day was as enjoyable as ours.

I like all of today’s designs, and a project fo r the coming years should be to add more quilting motifs to all the Wedding Ring project files …

… or start some new ones with quilting right from the first design.

My favourite for today is the last one … I think!

Floral Wedding 47, 48 from Virtual Quilter

I like the first one of today’s designs.

I love the second design.

I have started a new project file with beaded wedding rings … well, so far I have drawn a heap of blocks … one of several project files waiting for some attention in the new year, including having some time in the limelight on this blog.

Floral Wedding OP 35, 36 from Virtual Quilter

I love this project file, but one day I will make some changes to the blocks for a new file, or maybe a series of files. Different flowers including an Australian version using native flora. Lots of weddings happen on beaches now, so one with sea shells maybe. I already have beaded version, but there are a lot of mixed beaded version I have drawn, but have never used in designs. Then the bubble rings could become sea foam with applique shells in the centre of the rings.

I love the second design in todays post, so I hope the ...

Wedding Fans OP 53, 54 from Virtual Quilter

Pretty, but the centre would need either more applique or lots of spectacular quilting.

Bit better, but could use more something in the centre.

White Wedding OP 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Looks a bit washed out … and about how a couple of people we know must feel after trying to organise a wedding this year!

I like the centre of the first design, but like the second design more … with a slight change to the centre!

The aftermath from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Have you noticed that we spend a LOT of time doing quilting stuff that has nothing to do with the sewing of the project? 

This is the scraps from PRISM Squared. I took apart all the seams for the pieced sections - remember, this is the scraps. Now I need to cut out the center for the next project, which uses the scraps from cutting the first set of wedges. YES - there is a bonus project with this one. I'm trying to get everything organized, and it might go in my retreat bag! 

Sorting through the scraps

Then I'm ...

Putter, putter, putter from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I finished my last two presentations for the week yesterday. It's so much fun to chat with the ladies from across the country. I get to hear what's happening, and it sounds like Winnipeg is going to shut down starting Monday - similar rules to what we have in the Ontario hot spots. 

I just won't go there as I'm so frustrated with the entire picture. We went out to dinner last night. We were so far apart from other people, plexiglass between the booths, people wearing masks and handwashing - that it's crazy to think that ...

With a little help from my friends from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 There is NOTHING like a sewing day. Even if it's getting together on-line. I have a feeling that with the colder weather not that far away, people are going to embrace Zoom (or whatever platform they are using) a whole lot more readily. No shoveling the car out of the snow, no wet boots, no frozen butt on a cold car seat (even with seat warmers!), no frozen hands. Oh yes - I'm going to love sewing in my space this winter with Zoom!

A lot got done yesterday and a good part of it happened while I sewed ...

Stunned SILENCE from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I want to say that I'm truly blessed. Why? Somewhere along the way, I learned to always look at the glass as half full. Oh - trust me - I face issues just like everyone else. I've just learned to NOT worry about stuff that I cannot change. I don't complicate my life, and I'm perfectly happy to use what I have instead of coveting something that I don't have. 

Oh - I'm not a saint by any means. I have days when the world is a big bad place, and I want to stay in ...

Even a little bit is better than none! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

What do you do when you decide the morning of your workshop that you NEED new samples? 

You get your butt in gear! That's what!!!

I'm teaching a workshop on basic quilt building blocks this morning at 9:30 AM. I dug out my old samples and thought I could just use those. Then I thought I could kill two birds with one stone. Make new samples that I can use as a step out plan live. But hey - why not take pictures, and then they can be used in a PowerPoint presentation, and if I write them ...

Do it NOW! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Good morning!!!  Wow - I didn't get a whole lot done yesterday, but I learned a very valuable lesson. Actually, I already know this (and so do you!), but the topic surfaced yesterday and it's a good wakeup call for ALL of us. 

I taught a private lesson for someone on their sewing machine. It's actually a couple - both of them sew and I love their sewing room which has two sewing tables and they seem to have loads of fun working together. That won't happen at my house, but that's OK - I don't like ...

Change - is a "good" thing from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I've noticed that the interface that I use to post my blogs has been changing. I'd see the "new" interface but quickly found the button to revert to the old. I see the new interface this morning and I did NOT see the button to revert back. Well, I should just suck it up and get used to the new. It appears that the functions are the same - just different formatting. 

Before you know it, I won't even know the difference and certainly won't remember the old interface. Change is good - let's move forward - onward ...

It's a Zoom love fest from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I finished the audiobook just before our Monday sewing started at 10 AM! Riveting right to the end. I wonder if Mary Kubica's other books are as riveting? One thing I noticed about my Libby app. There are times when I open it up, and I get a message, "skip the line - download this book now!".  I wonder why I get those messages? For good behavior? For finishing and returning a book early? It's happened twice now. I didn't accept the book as I have four waiting to read, and four is plenty enough for me.

Remember ...

Double Wedding Ring Quilt from Quiltmanufaktur

Vor ziemlich genau zwei Jahren habe ich einen neuen Workshop für das BERNINA Creative Center konzipiert, den Double Wedding Ring.

Ich bekomme bei der Gestaltung von neunen Workshops immer freie Hand und kann Sachen ausprobieren, die ich selber interessant finde, aber noch nie gemacht habe. Das ist ein spannender Prozess, denn das Aussuchen und Ausprobieren klappt nicht immer auf Anhieb.....

Den Double Wedding Ring hatte ich schon lange im Auge. Das ist so eine romantische Idee hinter dem Motiv, oder? Die vielen Varianten, die man im Netz findet, sind für dich gesehen schon eine Herausforderung und sich dann seine eigene ...

Double Wedding Quilts 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

For practical purposes wedding quilts made in these fabrics would have to be put away when children are old enough to start jumping on beds, until they leave home!

Of course, if one of the couple is a mechanic who comes home and sits on the bed the quilt would be forever in storage for future generations.

My favourite is the second one.

a final goal for June from Making A Lather

We had a quick thunderstorm early Saturday morning, with a close lightening strike, that left us without power all day. It was a long day waiting for power to be restored wondering what we may have lost. We have been hit several times over the years and have had to replace all kinds of things. We were relieved that everything seemed ok, until, we tried to use the internet. Our box was fried. It has been interesting just how much we depend on our internet. Att said they would send someone Sunday, but, no one came. We were told at ...

Interesting bed topper.

Like the second one … and big enough for a queen size bed.

Floral Wedding 44, 45, 46 from Virtual Quilter

Like it … even the empty spaces which just need some quilting lines …

… or some applique!

Move the applique blocks and replace four part Wedding Rings with just the leafy joins and I love it!
