dwr rows from Making A Lather

I am still working on the double wedding ring quilt. I have all the rows completed, and now, it's time to get brave and sew the rows together..... hmmm......maybe next week.


I have loved everything about making this quilt. I am truly glad I took the plunge and decided to make it. And, I do want to see it finished. I started the quilt because Jo of Jo's country junction published her version of it in magazine, and started a quilt along. That was the motivation I needed.
I love the fabrics and that all of it ...

Some Of My Traditional Quilts from Quilts + Color

I call this quilt Amish Pathways. It is a one patch quilt design. It is a simple quilt I designed that could be pieced in almost no time. It relies on a great color combination. It is in a private collection. I designed the quilting pattern to give it texture and direction. It is hand quilted.
There is nothing more traditional than a log cabin quilt. As I made quilts I cut the leftovers into strips and made this when I had enough strips. It was a labor of lover and as I created it my thoughts went to the ...

classic double wedding ring from Making A Lather

One block at a time, I am building rows for my double wedding ring quilt. It is tricky getting the curves facing the right direction.


The outside rows require a finished curved edge. It is easiest if there are 3 melons on the center piece. But, the row goes together in an every other pattern. This is the last block for the the right bottom outside corner. Now, I have to start putting rows together. I started this with Jo of Jo's country junction quilt along. I was pleasantly surprised how much easier it is to make than it ...

double wedding ring from Making A Lather

We have had another through the night snowfall and it is pretty looking out the window. Yesterday, I had rug hooking guild and a quilter's group get together. Two fun things in one day is pretty exciting around here.
I spent rug hooking time transferring a new snowman pattern to linen. I didn't get it finished, but I did get it squared and borders straight and nice.
At quilt group, I worked on double wedding ring and sorting through a box, that I wasn't sure just what was in there, despite the labels. I will have to ...

templates from Making A Lather

I am a tool person and so is my husband, so he would let me buy anything that was a tool. He is a machine repairman, and he knows that the right tool can make a huge difference. I made my first quilt with a homemade cardboard template. We have come a long way since then.

I did a quick check on the template inspired quilts I am piecing. I have taken the double wedding ring out of the box again and I have several of these parts I need to make.


I have been cutting 2 1/2 in ...

I like it.

I have just blinked, or something, and the shapes created by the sections of Double Wedding Rings in each corner look like Christmas decorations!

White Wedding OP 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Love this design, but it needs some quilting like many other of my project files that have been around for a long time. Not enough hours in the day to play!

At least with this series a lot of the quilting could be based on the applique designs, but then so are the others which need some virtual quilting. Have to leave some time to play with a real needle and real thread!

At the moment the needle and thread work is mending, altering and making clothing. The pile is diminishing, which means more room to play with important fabric ...

Christmas Weddings 12, 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Just a touch of red and green on this one, and I love the way the bells shrink.

Wedding rings and Christmas trees. Nice combination.

Both bells and hearts are symbols we can associate with Christmas and weddings.

one monthly goal finish from Making A Lather

This was my goals for October. It is the 31st and BOO and it is time to report just how well I did.

For my one monthly goal, I want to make my Granddaughter's unicorn quilt, and finish piecing orca bay mystery quilt, and continue working on the double wedding ring.

I have all the pieces cut and sewn to add around the unicorn quilt for my Granddaughter. I just have to do the math and put an inner border first.



 I have a big stack of double wedding ring melons finished. And it is time to add them ...

double wedding ring arcs from Making A Lather

All the arcs are officially done for the double wedding ring. I am slowly adding them to the second side of the melons.


We finished our Grandma week of fall break with a campfire and marshmallows. I have such great memories of my children and campfires. It is fun to watch how learning takes place while roasting marshmallows. It seems a simple thing, but it is filled with decisions and choices, and experiencing consequences. And watching a sunset is always good.

wedding ring double fun from Making A Lather

The weather has been so nice. I love an Indiana sky in the fall. It is a perfect shade of blue with just enough fluffy clouds to make it interesting. The temperature is cool enough that there is no doubt winter is coming, but warm enough to still feel hopeful there is a bit more time to be outdoors.
We grew elephant ears this year for the first time, And a bunch of weeds, and mosquitoes. We are clever that way.


I have all the A pieces of arcs made for my double wedding ring quilt- all of them. I ...

dwr quilt along from Making A Lather

I have sewn all the a pieces into twosies except for this lonely little guy. Let's hope it was an over calculation error and not a short. Time will tell. I have a whole row together and I am slowly putting the arcs on melons together.



At this point, I am enjoying the variety of sewing pieces together. I can sew different stages of arcs, or melons, or rings, or rows. I find I like doing a little of each at each time at the sewing machine. It keeps it interesting. And I am so flabbergasted about how well ...
