blue 9 patch finish from Making A Lather

This quilt began as a challenge this year from my daughter. She had too many 2 1/2 inch strips, and wanted to make a quilt with them. I had a blue 2 1/2 inch strip drawer that I couldn't close. She suggested a race. I talked about racing my daughter using 2 1/2 inch strips here.

We finished in June. Check here to see who won. I have been waiting for an opening on the longarm to do the quilting. I finished it last week and added the binding this week.

I used 3 large pieces ...

9 patch top from Making A Lather

And I have a top. I told my daughter that I was almost done, and, then, she planned on staying up all night to beat me. I'm too old for that nonsense, so, I got up early, finished, and texted her at 9:30 AM that I was done. There is two hours difference so she was still in bed. About 11:30 AM my time, she texted she was done too.  I win by time difference. I talked about racing my daughter using 2 1/2 inch strips here.



A Mother never loses. Any result ...

Ufo progress from Making A Lather

I have finished 2 ufos so far for June and I have finished 10 for the year. The goal for ufos and the phd 2020 was 12. However, not all the ufos I have finished, were on my original list. I'm not sure how that counts. But, it has motivated me for sure. Countryside cottage is here. And silent night is here.

I've made progress on a few other projects from the list. Frolic mystery and unicorn quilt are ready to be quilted.

I am moving the rainbow projects started this year along - shine and row x row ...

More 9 patch from Making A Lather

More 9 patches and I am ready to start the rows.

I talked about racing my daughter using 2 1/2 inch strips here.  I threw in a couple of ringers. just to get rid of them. If they don't hide well with the others, I may have to replace them. My daughter just bought a longarm, maybe she has become distracted, And I can get this done before she notices.

start here.

more 9 patch from Making A Lather

And then, there were more. I enjoy working on these in the evening while we are watching Tv.

I talked about racing my daughter using 2 1/2 inch strips here. I think I am still ahead of her. But, neither of us is tipping our hand. I decided to throw a few red into the mix. It seems to go quickly when each set makes 2 blocks. I think I am aiming for 42 blocks for a 6 x 7 layout. That would be the equivalent of 63 jelly roll strips. I think Katie let slip, she is using ...

9 patches from Making A Lather

Ah, look what happens if I let myself idle for a moment. I start something new. My daughter texted and said we should do a jelly roll race, which I took to mean race as in who wins. So out came my 2 1/2 inch strips and in blue. I think I am way ahead of her, but, she has a way of sneaking past me.

I like making these. It is very satisfying when they finished. It takes 1 1/2 strips of a light and a dark to make them. So far, I am using the treadle ...
