to do: brag about my friends from Making A Lather

 My Friday group meets at the library. There are 3 of us, that meet regularly, and, we have another 5 that comes many times, but, off and on. They are all very talented, and approach quilting differently. That's why I enjoy it so much. I just like to make quilts. I may not have a reason to make one or a plan on what I am going to do with it. I may have several projects going at the same time, and, I tend to bounce around from project to project. I quilt my own quilts on a longarm ...

Lucy's basket from Making A Lather

We had a visitor to our little Friday quilt group. She had made these little fabric star ornaments for each of the guild members for our Christmas meeting. We were all thrilled. When she made a visit with us she taught us how to make them.  I could follow along with her and made mine, but, I don't think I could do it again on my own.



This was the day I put my basket quilt together. I don't have a plan beyond this. I am guessing it is about 65 by 70.  Each basket is 3 1 ...

woven from Making A Lather

I'm pretty excited to have woven checkerboards as a top. Now that I see the picture, I think I will add at least a black border. hmmm...


I really like seeing all the different scraps in this quilt that I used as part of the rainbow scrap challenge, and, it seems, I rarely use black, because, I had lots of options in the black scrap basket.


In our Friday group, Sue made Editya Sitar's Christmas tree


And Maris made a patriotic soul searching, with plans to donate it to the vet's home in town.

friday sew from Making A Lather

Last week, our Friday group met together. Everyone was busy with their projects. I really enjoy this time together, but only recently started taking my sewing machine again, after the restrictions for my back surgery were lifted. I have a rainbow crayon quilt I wanted to put together.


I had made the letters, along with the crayon, according to the color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge. So, if you wondered what the letters were meant to be, this is part of them. I was really interested in letters for 2019. It seems I made letters for everything ...

woven from Making A Lather

At friday quilt group, I had a chance to layout the woven checkerboard quilt on the floor. Cynthia of Quilting is more fun than housework, had made this quilt last year and I really liked it. I have been making the double 4 patch as part of the rainbow scrap challenge this year. It is time to actually sew it together.


I also started putting the wonky courthouse square together in 4s. I can't wait to finish it. It is using up bits and bobs of scraps.

blue letters from Making A Lather

Again more letters, this time in blue. I think that does it for this year. Now, to start putting everything together. I am making these as part of the rainbow scrap challenge.


Fortunately my friends are doing something that doesn't have more letters, and more interesting to view. These are destined for donation quilts.
