a few tiny houses from Making A Lather

I can't believe this all I have ready for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy this week.

tiny houses in a square

I did get the purple semi colons done for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing.


 I have been working on sea swept and quilting ode to Joey. And the garden is in need of attention. We have tomatoes to can. We are dehydrating some, but, I will need to can.  I did "harvest" some elderberries from our woods and near our church. It takes a lot to make even a tincture. So, I press ...

crumby stars from Making A Lather

I am catching up the crumb star blocks I needed for June and the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I made a few darkish tiny houses.


I am just now making the red exclamation points for May for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing.


I made a few this morning since I was so close



we have had rainy weather for a few days and the weeds are sooo happy.

almost finishes from Making A Lather

With my mojo gone, I have just been tinkering with this and that. I have some almost finishes.

asterix s for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing. I still need to sash and join.


A rug hooking flower mat. I have the flower finished and I am working on the background.


I started making a journal from scraps of cardboard. Now, I need to cover it with something pretty. I think I need to add some gratitudey things as well.


I have snoopy wiggle time quilted, I just need to bind it.

color blocks from Making A Lather

The last Saturday in April and the color blue for rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. That means crunch time. I didn't have that many 2 1/2 inch squares in light blue for the color blocks. I "gasp" had to cut a few squares for variety.


I still had other blues to play at making blocks.




I have the green brackets finished for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing. I still need to work on the asterix for blue. I made 5 green ones. They were easy enough if I want more later.



My rainbow projects ...

courthouse top from Making A Lather

I think I have a top for the  wonky courthouse quilt. I went from blocks to top pretty quickly. It is 56 x 72 - is that big enough? This is also the third wonky courthouse I have made, and, none of them have been quilted. But, I have more than enough strings and crumbs to sew many more. I started when I saw that Bonnie Hunter was making one.



I really like making these blocks. There is quick progress, and, it is very soothing to match pieces by the size that is needed. I grab a handful of  crumbs and ...

quote marks quilt from Making A Lather

It's a new month, but, I still have yellow to finish from February. These are the quote marks from the full stop quilt that Angela is doing. I have a few bonus 2 inch  HSTS - ( half square triangles ) I chose the easy example of quote marks that Angela offered. 



I am still taming the scraps this week by cutting 10 inch squares.  3 pounds 5 ounces = 9 1/4 yards = 95.00 worth of fabric. I counted 52 squares = 4 packs of layer cakes = 160.00 

My worry is that I won't use them. Since I haven't ...

still in the pink from Making A Lather

Even with an extra Saturday in January, I did not get all my pink projects finished for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I am using my 2 1/2 inch squares to make 16 patch blocks for the Debbie Brown color blocks quilt along. I am making the blocks each month with the rainbow colors, and, then, deciding which blocks for which quilt at the end of the year. I wonder if a person can ever empty the 2 1/2 inch square bin.



I wanted to get started with full stop quilt that Angela is doing, but ...
