sunshine yellow from Making A Lather

Yellow is the color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge. Yellow is my favorite color, but, it doesn't look as lovely in my patterns as some of the other colors. hmmmm

I've been working to finish a couple of ufos. I finished Aunt Mary's double irish chain yesterday.

I ran into a snafu with the patriotic ufo. I discovered that I had 3 sashing strips for the inner border attached, but, not the fourth. It was nowhere to be found. I made the decision to unattach one of the borders, and ...

A patriotic Picking Petals by Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


Please excuse the horn tootin’ going on over here, but I’m quite proud of my pattern Picking Petals. This was one of the first patterns I released when my business was new, and over the years she’s been stitched up by thousands of quilters in a variety of colorways and themes. It’s a quick little quilt to sew, and the results are always lovely. Recently the folks at Sweet Treasures Quilts sewed up a patriotic version, which is sophisticated and striking!

stars and stripes quilt finish from Making A Lather

We had a small quilt store in our town a few years ago. It wasn't far from my house. I spent too much time visiting the store and the sisters that owned it. I took classes and participated in block of the months. It was sad to see them close.  One of the block of the months they offered, was a patriotic quilt. There is something magical about red, white, and blue quilts.
I am thinking this was 2013. The blocks were one a month, and, then, the setting was after the blocks were done. It was my one ...

a patriotic finish from Making A Lather

This is a project I remember starting in the 90s, when a new quilt shop opened here in Kokomo, Indiana. It didn't last long, but, it was wonderful while it was open. I had taken a "real " quilting class, and loved stopping in the shop to pet the fabric. It has sat in the ufo stage for that many years.
I pulled this project out again here and here in 2019. I finished the top and it fell into the "to be quilted" pile.
It seemed like a quick finish for these trying times. I had it on the ...

~ Customer Quilt ~ Patriotic Picnic ~ from Podunk Pretties

Today I wanted to share with you a quilt made with my pattern Patriotic Picnic.  The quilt maker is Sio Hoon Teo from Singapore.


Below is her amazing quilt story. 


To be honest when I was scrolling through Facebook and saw the quilt I thought it was mine and someone had reposted my finished quilt.


The quilting is stunning! 


Sio put so much work into her quilt to be donated to charity.  Quilters really are some of the most generous and kind people.  


Thank you Sio for your hard work and giving spirit.  It made my day to see one ...

~ Happy Little Things ~ Giveaway! ~ from Podunk Pretties

 It's hard to believe the Happy Little Things block of the month is almost over.  If you are just hearing about Jacquelynne Steves and this block of the month you can find all the information on her blog, click here.


Jacquelynne's version of this quilt could be used as a lap quilt or wall hanging.  It can be done as applique, embroidery only in the center block or just a plain pieced block.  Fussy cutting your fabric fabric for the center of the blocks would also be super cute.


 Each year as featured bloggers of Jacquelynne's block ...
