snowman rug from Making A Lather

I decided it was time to make a new rug. I've struggled with no inspiration. I just picked a pattern and started to transfer it to linen. I had drawn the pattern and enlarged it. I had it pinned and was ready to transfer to linen, and we had family for dinner, and it was scooped off the dining room table and off on an adventure.
But, I hunted through the jungle of a house, and found it, and started the transfer. I used red dot webbing and a juicy sharpie pen.
It took 2 visits to rug hooking ...

seeing red from Making A Lather

I sorted through my red scrap drawer and used up any smaller pieces. The bigger pieces I sorted by whether they would look good with a white background or a cream background. So far, most of the rainbow quilts I am making use a white background. I may have to challenge myself to make a cream based quilt rainbow style. Oh, I just thought of something - squirrel


I made checkerboards in red for Cynthia Brunz's design woven checkerboard. She blogs at Quilting is more fun than housework. This is the second quilt of hers I am doing for the ...

Old meets new from The Academic Quilter

Hi everyone! I hope you have begun to thaw out from the major storm that hit most of the US this past weekend.  Amazingly, we did not get snow, just lots of rain followed by rapidly falling temps.  The high on Sunday was 48, with a low of 16.  It was crazy!

Since we couldn't really go anywhere or do anything, and I didn't want to work on a paper, I spent two days in the sewing room and got a lot accomplished while the hubs was in the other room screaming about sports.  Something about pass interference ...

crayon rsc from Making A Lather

Another quilt I want to make for the rainbow scrap challenge is the Emily Herrick Crayon quilt. It is great to start with a basic color of red.
I could cut these pieces from a 2 1/2 in strips which I still need to reduce.


I sewed them together in pairs and then 4s etc.


As a leader and ender I am sewing together the triangle pieces for pinwheel fancy




And a crayon was born.

rsc flying home from Making A Lather

I am making a new rainbow scrap challenge quilt this year called flying home. I had enough of this scrap red to make 5 blocks. But it is all gone now. hooray.






 Each Tuesday, Angela at so scrappy is introducing a Tiny Tuesday block. By the end of the year, we will have enough for a sampler rainbow quilt. The first one was string blocks.


We have actual snow. It started through the night and is still snowing. It is so pretty and quiet.

baby rainbow from Making A Lather

I am already in love with this pattern. It is called wiggle time by Cynthia Brunz of Quilting is more fun than housework ( gotta love that name) I am making a rainbow version to follow along with the rainbow scrap challenge. It was easy to cut.


The units were easy.


And the assembly was easy with nothing to match.



And it looks great. I can already imagine it in different colors. But, for now, I will be patient and enjoy it one color at a time rainbow style.

Another New Quilt Project from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

There are other things I really ought to be stitching, but the leftovers from my triangle quilt top were pleading for me to not stuff them back into the bin, lest they be forgotten. Choosing a pattern is often the most time consuming part of the quilt making process for me. I scroll through my saved quilts on Pinterest. I search out new ideas in the patterns I already own. I thumb through
