borders from Making A Lather

 Day 7 of January and I have not bought any fabric - This is a big deal for me. I wonder when the shakes will stop. Of course, I haven't been anywhere, but, I know how to use the submit now button on a website. I have at least 2 feet of floor cleaned up and vacuumed back from my sewing machine. For as nice as it feels, why can't I remember to keep it that way. I am barely energetic enough to sew. I have been trying to finish the gazillion hourglass blocks for rhododendron mystery. I thought ...

too many circles from Making A Lather

This project is from 2012 when we had a local quilt shop in town. They held this quilt as a free block of the month. I had all the blocks at the end of the program done, but didn't decide how to put it together, so it went to the time out closet. I used a random number generator for this ufo project. It is time to make some decisions.

I apparently planned a sashing but there is no other piece of that fabric. There is a pretty aqua fabric in the box, that I might use.

I made ...

Design Wall Monday - September 13, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

August, 2012, nine years ago, I took a class on curved pieces at the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids.  This was before I even moved to Grand Rapids, as I remember staying with my friend Joan during the quilt show.  My sample from the class:And a vintage Drunkard’s Path block that Joan had at her house.Joan Brink’s vintage DP March, 2021  On the Design Wall progress:September, 2021,  the finished

Patchwork Jigsaw PJ 1234 1, 2, 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

In my library of Patchwork Jigsaws this blocks full number is 1234 1234 1234 1234 which is based on the direction the quarter circle faces in each quarter of the block. Here are two often used colorizations of the block.

And something a bit more adventurous.

Yes, exactly the same blocks, but with the colours. Even if you had not had an alcoholic drink in your life this would cause a few headaches resembling a hangover!

Much less of a headache with the one above.

And something much simpler as the last design for today.

Design Wall Monday - April 5, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Happy Easter!This season of my life (I’m turning 78 this month) is teaching me what bitter sweet means.  While I feel life is deeper, sweeter, and more tender than when I was younger; it also is a season where I grieve good friends who die suddenly.   This is one of those grieving times.  Last week I lost a dear quilter friend who was part of the Churn Dashers of Tidewater Virginia group.  Her

Design Wall Monday - March 29, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!  Here is my design wall as it looks right now:There are 14 Lemoyne Stars that are yet to be completed - most of them have the center star parts sewn together, and just need the outside background edges attached (with the set-in seams).  I pinned them up on the wall.  There are only four that do not have the center parts sewn together.  You can see where these four will go

Design Wall Monday - March 22, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Thanks for all the well wishes and your prayers.  I am feeling much better and am back at getting the two brown and white quilts finished.  They are off the design wall and one is ready to go to the long arm quilter.  Here are two pictures of each side of it hanging over the stairs railing.  I am needing a place to hang up a quilt top for a picture.  There is a new project on the design wall, so

Design Wall Monday - March. 8, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!  My design wall is looking different, and I am making progress on the two brown quilts.  Progress had to show if I kept working on them, right?  Here’s the Drunkard’s Path, which has grown:And here is the Wedding Ring middle - all in one piece finally:This quilt has a two inch border around it of brown, and then a wider border of white.  I had fun amusing myself trying to

Design Wall Monday - March 1, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters! March 1st, a new month, and I have been working on the two quilts on my design wall.  Plus other projects as well.  I think March will be a good month of progress on the UFOs.  Here is the design wall: Still lots of brown and white, but the Wedding Ring quilt has all the edge triangles now cut, and the rows are getting assembled.  I can see the finish line, which will spur

Design Wall Monday - February 15, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Happy Valentines Day everyone!  I hope you got more sewing done this last week than I did!  My design wall hasn’t changed for quite a while, and I am resolved to get things moving there before next Monday.  The two quilts that I seem bogged down on are both brown and neutral.  I think the lack of brighter colors on these two has something to do with my lack of progress on them.  But here’s a

Design Wall Monday - February 1, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

It’s  February 1st.....and January went by so fast that I can’t believe it.  I haven’t even reviewed my  list of UFOs to see where I’m at with my goals of getting them all finished.  I do know I made good progress in 2020, and am continuing on in 2021.  So it’s all good.  I did find the staff at my sister’s nursing home could add to her care the sitting  with Nancy M W F while she is at dialysis,

Design Wall Monday - January 18, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!  Well, I had 6 units completed last Monday, and said if I increased by 50%, there would be 9 completed by today, and there are now 9.   If I increased production by 50% again, it would mean 9 + 4.5 units.....13.5 completed.  Not happening, as that would be pushing production too much and this factory (me) has quality control issues if I run it too fast.  Here are the 9

Good Morning Quilters.  My week has again been filled with non-quilty things, but I did get some more Drunkard’s Path blocks sewn together.  I think of 16 of the concave/convex two pieces sewn together as one “block”:So last week I had four “blocks” and now there are six.....50% increase!  I don’t have a pattern, so I am sewing along until I feel it is big enough.  If I increased its size by 50%

Design Wall Monday - January 4, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Well, here we are in 2021, and my start of the new year has been unsettling.  We are up at the cabin and had not planned to be up here, so I don’t have much to report about my quilting, as there is not much I’ve had time to work on.But I am working on an old project that I started in 2012.  I took a class about curved seams and started this drunkard’s path quilt.   I blogged about it (Here)

I keep finding stuff hidden away in Electric Quilt files … some of them dating back to 2013!

Many of them only have four or five designs, but his one has 24. Most of them are the basic blocks twisted and turned to see how they fit together, and these are interesting, but not show stoppers.

The second design is the basic block used in this series, in one of many possible colourings.

There are hundreds of ways to arrange the sixteen squares of the Drunkards Path pieces to create symmectrical blocks … these two designs are just two of them. Then ...

row x row in green from Making A Lather

My favorite kind of green. The poppies came with the house 30 years ago, and they bring joy every year. We used to call the purple flower sweet william, but, we found out we were wrong, but, now, I can't remember the real name. They pop up wherever they want and smell so good.

The row x row quilt doesn't call for dark green, but, there are two rows of lime green. I did the first row in January. I decided to do the second row this month to move it along.

I like to sew it with ...

Very interesting.

The Drunkard’s Path design caught my attention the first time I saw a block. Then I saw a sampler quilt with 15 different arrangements of the two shapes in the blocks, and I already had a few sketches of ones not included in that sampler.

I did some maths one day, and the total number of possibilities is a very long number, and that is for a block with 16 squares.

I know I will never find them all, but it is good fun playing, and I did work out a system for finding the best ones ...
