blocks found from Making A Lather

My Granddaughter was here for a visit and decided to reorganize my extra room. I had no idea what she was doing, until it was too late. I use that room for a holding cell of blocks ready to make into tops and tops ready to be quilted, and unfortunately, as storage for whatever I don't know where to home them. I knew that this little set back, for me, was probably the reason I had lost my rhododendron mystery blocks. This week, when it was raining, I asked my hubby to accompany me to that room and make ...

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - orange- I made a few bow ties, even orange. With the announcement of the new leader/ender challenge from Quiltville, I decided to look back at the ones I have started and not finished, rather than start the new one. This was the earliest one I have not finished, and, I sorted it out and decided to work on this for a bit. If my calculations are correct, I only need 30 + more little blocks to start a top.

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - purple- I am still working on finishing last month's rainbow scrap blocks in blue.

waffle stamp


2. rhododendren mystery - hunter -    I have lost the blocks. It has been too long and I don't remember where I put them. I am cleaning a whole room looking for them, so far, no luck.

3. Boho heart -Nothing new here. I am at a part that intimidates me. I can't just pick up something and quickly sew it together, so I procrastinate.

4. maple leaves - I need ...

My last 5 quilt progress report May 30

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - blue- I am working on the rainbow scrap challenge colors that I didn't sew during the past months. waffle stamp blocks require the 1/12 inch block centers that have to be pieced ahead, before I can put them together. I did make the candy blocks in blue.



2. rhododendren mystery - hunter -   I finally cut the 1 inch squares I needed for the mystery quilt.

3. Boho heart - The first section on the left is together. Time to make a few blocks for the next section.

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - green-  I made 7 candy blocks. This makes 35 blocks in rainbow colors for this quilt. I am aiming for 56. I like making them and it uses the smallest pieces, so it is a new favorite.

3. Boho heart - I am working on section 1- the farthest left section. It is squirrelly to put together. I have to take a break when it gets too confusing. When I come back ...

Rhododendron Trail Finish from TheEclecticAbuela

 Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery this year was called Rhododendron Trail.


I stayed (mostly) with Bonnie's colors--only substituting green for aqua. This is a different quilt than my usual ones; it is much lighter in color overall, but it is nice to make something out-of-the-ordinary sometimes.

Rhody Trail (92" x 100")


Rhody Trail (border and binding detail)


Rhody Trail (backing and binding detail)

A fun project--I love Mystery Quilts!


Happy Quilting.

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - pink- I cut and sewed all the yellow hunter's star blocks for March.


and I started with pink for April with candy blocks



2. I used a random number generator and I opened the box for an older ufo called 'every which way' by gigis thimble that I started in 2016. It looks like the top is made and just needs borders. There is enough fabric left to make them. I really don't remember where or how I started this one. But, it is ...

  My 5 quilts progress report.

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - yellow/gold  I am working on my hole in the barn blocks. I didn't think I was going to add these this year, but, I did. SO, I am catching up red from January, and aqua from February.

I used adding machine tape to see if I like it. Yes, I did, but it was a pain in the neck, so, I thought I could eyeball 2 1/2 inches and just started sewing long strips. Much better.

 My 5 quilts progress report. I tried to not do this EVERY week (boring) but, it has worked to keep me focused. And, I miss it. I find I have been a little haphazard without it. I thought I would do it every month, but, I think I need to go back to every week to help me.

1.rainbow scrap challenge - color aqua/teal - boho heart. I worked on the blue/aqua blocks I needed for boho heart.

Weekly update: a flimsy, sewing ahead, catching up -- and some good books! from With Strings Attached

 


I added an outer border to Rhododendron Trail to contain the design.  In retrospect I should have limited it to 25 blocks because it is really, really long.  Too late now!  

12-1/2 yards.

I had to buy more of the turquoise print. Fortunately Joann's had 2 yards on the bolt. And that was ALL I bought.  (At Joann's, that is. There's a DSW next door and I found these terrific shoes. I've seen them in a couple of mail-order catalogs but this way I could try them on. They also came in two-tone blue and ...

A Quilting Life Block of the Month (Jan's Quilt) from Sew........This Is My Blog

If you need more projects to work on or you're looking for a quilty podcast to listen to, check out Sherri's blog, A Quilting Life.  Just after the Covid isolation began my quilty friend Denise used that blog to entice me into doing a Mystery Block of the Month as a sew-along with her.  It turns out this Mystery BOM is an annual thing.  Now she's talked me and three other neighbors into making the 2022 mystery quilt.  More about that later.  

The 2020 quilt was designed using all half-square-triangles.  I decided to use bright batiks .....
