this and that from Making A Lather

Remember how full my closet is of quilts to be quilted? This is one of them. Sister's 9 patch is a quiltville quilt that I thought had been done for awhile, waiting in the closet to be quilted. I told myself I can not start anything new, until, I quilt a quilt, of my own, from the closet. I grabbed this one.
But, it is not ready. The back wasn't actually pieced and then, I realized it needs borders as well, and binding.


 This was the first finished quilt block from a student in the workshop I taught ...

cleveland finish from Making A Lather

My Cleveland rug is finished. I used yarn to whip the edges that I dyed myself. This was a free pattern from the 2017 Atha (association of traditional rug hooking artists) biennial in Cleveland. My husband and I attended and had a great time. This year, the biennial is in Denver, and I am interested in attending. It is sad how easy it is to talk yourself out of anything fun.


A friend at Friday group was working on the binding for her Minecraft quilt. This is for her son who loves minecraft. She is a professional longarmer. and made ...

hooking and quilting from Making A Lather

Apparently, Cleveland is proud of it's night life. For me, I made sparkling grape juice for my Cleveland rug.


I wanted to share a sweet quilt made by a Friday group friend. She designed it herself. She started with a T shirt from her late husband and made the center. He was a vet as well, so she kept each border in that color scheme.  When asked if she was gifting it to someone, she said that she wanted to sleep under it. It is beautiful.  and a treasure.

friday quilt group from Making A Lather

Yesterday was Friday group, and I had a chance to build the borders for my fishy quilt. I couldn't get them attached since I decided I wanted another blue border first, and I hadn't brought the material. I also worked on real bias binding for the older quilt I am finishing for a long arm customer here.


Sue was working on her drops of jupiter quilt


and had finished her fall wall hanging. She had it done in time, but we wanted to see it.



Linda has the top done for her drops of jupiter quilt. And I ...

More hexagons from Making A Lather

I have added the blue hexagons to Mrs. Holder's hexagon quilt. There were 32. The numbers will get smaller as I turn it into a rectangle.


Here are some inspirational pictures from our Friday quilt group.
Hazel finished this one, she is 85 years old. Her daughter quilts them for her, but she is still buying fabric and piecing. She is a hoot.


Connie was finishing a baby quilt. so cute

3 of us are working on drops of jupiter by Jen Kingwell and this is Sue's. I only have 2 made.


And another Hazel fall wall hanging ...

hexies and one monthly goal from Making A Lather

All the green and brown hexies are attached to Mrs. Holder's hexagon quilt. I decided to"finish" Mrs. holder's hexagon quilt. so I am working my way to a rectangle.



It is the end of the month already and it's time to see how I did with my one monthly goals.

"For my one monthly goal this month, I want to finish the strings for orca bay, finish roll roll cotton boll, and I want to start a unicorn quilt for my Granddaughter." 

I did finish the strings for orca bay and cut and started the piecing ...

stitching hexagons from Making A Lather

Last week I decided to"finish" Mrs. holder's hexagon quilt. I spent the week cutting, glue basting, and adding the red and neutral row around the quilt. There were 54 hexagons in that ring. I certainly have rebuilt my calluses for hand stitching. This is the last ring before I start to turn it into a rectangle.



I saw a blurb somewhere about making bread machine bread mixes ahead of time, and I wanted to try that. Sometimes, just the idea of getting everything out of the cupboard to load the machine is enough to deter making bread. But ...

hexagons from Making A Lather

This is where I left off making this quilt in August of 2016.  Mrs. Holder's hexagon was a temecula quilt shop sew along. I made mine with 3/4 in hexagons. It is meant to be a today's version of an old  1880 antique quilt made by Mrs. Holder.


Someone at Friday group was talking about finishing off projects and that *gasp* she was almost done. I'm pretty sure that should be grounds for expulsion from the group. None the less, I came home and looked at my list, and in the top 5 of ufos, this ...

friday quilt group from Making A Lather

I have 3 birch trees blocks finished for April and I have 3 dark gold yet to do. Yellow doesn't photograph well. I made these tree parts from a gifted scrap bag. The rainbow Scrap challenge has been a great motivator to make quilts that I might not have found the time for otherwise. It is much easier to sneak in a few blocks each week/ month. And so much fun keeping it to a certain color. April's color is yellow/gold.


We had a fun day on Friday with our little quilt group. Spring had brought out ...

My friends at Friday group have been doing a row by row together using Jen Kingwell patterns. The only block I have done is the glitter block. I just have felt that I needed to finish up what I already have, but I knew as soon as I saw it I would be sorry I didn't sew along. sigh...


Isn't it wonderful!?

This is Linda O.'s quilt

row by row from Making A Lather

My Friday quilt group is working on a row by row quilt using Jen Kingwell patterns.
I was planning on joining them, but at this point, I am too far behind. But, I know I will love it when they are done, and feel a little sad that I didn't keep up with them.
This is the row they are making. Linda O made these.
