ode to joey quilt finish from Making A Lather

I have an actual finish this week. My ode to Joey quilt is almost ready for the quilt show the first of October. I just need to make a label. I have worked on this quilt for almost three years. First, I made the words by color for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy in 2019. And then, I have slowly been sewing it together. I began this as a way to heal a broken heart, and it has become very meaningful to me.


80x85 = about 20 yards of fabric

retreat top from Making A Lather

We had a sleep in your own bed retreat yesterday and will have one today. My main project to work on was my ode to Joey quilt. I worked on piecing the rows and joining the rows. I plan on using it as a visual aid for Church class on Sunday. I made the words according to the color of the month for rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. It is a rectangle the wrong way, so, I need to figure out what I want to do for the top and bottom.

someone was taking pictures 



I have 3 quilts ...

more words from Making A Lather

Can I buy a vowel? This is the last of the words I need to join for my quote quilt. Now, I need to lay out all the words, and see if and how they will fit together to make a quilt. I'm scared it all won't fit. Oh, it will. geesh. I am just being a worry wart.

friday sew from Making A Lather

Last week, our Friday group met together. Everyone was busy with their projects. I really enjoy this time together, but only recently started taking my sewing machine again, after the restrictions for my back surgery were lifted. I have a rainbow crayon quilt I wanted to put together.


I had made the letters, along with the crayon, according to the color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge. So, if you wondered what the letters were meant to be, this is part of them. I was really interested in letters for 2019. It seems I made letters for everything ...

more letters from Making A Lather

I definitely overdid the letter quilts this year, But I have had a great time with them, and I am not done yet. I feel like all I blog about are letters. I made yellow letters....


and purple letters....


I have more blue to do.
I am slowly putting some of my quilt show purchases away. I have this bundle of homespuns. They may be not trending now, but I like them and everything comes around again.


I bought these paper pieced kaleidoscopes and all the papers printed.


For now, I will put these treasures away for someday.
