tiny orange scraps from Making A Lather

I had one lonely aqua 16 patch color block from last month for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.

then, I worked on 4 psp 20 blocks in this month's color - orange. I am amazed at how many different oranges there are, but, I was also surprised how few oranges of any size, I have left in the scrap bins.

My Friday group has started making Boho heart by Jen Kingwell. I am doing it in rainbow colors. Part of the fun of a group project is seeing how different all of our hearts will be when finished ...

small piecing from Making A Lather

I made it to our Friday  quilt group yesterday. I was trying to catch up with my sea swept blocks. I made some progress on the diamond part of the sashing. 

The weather has been so nice. High seventies and sunshine. I really don't like when the cicadas make the sound of fall coming. The summer has passed so quickly.

I am still working with darks for the tiny houses and the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. 

I did have 3 aqua ish strips for the psp 20/21 blocks

oops found these on the floor

I have ...

waffling from Making A Lather

I started working with my sea swept sashing blocks. I ran into an either or decision that has  me paused. Either, I make the economy square with actual size pieces, and use up triangle pieces already cut, or, I cut new oversized pieces and trim down to the right size. 

So, while I am waffling about that decision, I made more waffle stamp blocks. Pun intended.

Each block is a surprise when it is finished. I enjoy that. I have made a huge dent in the 1 1/2 inch strip and squares bins.

postage stamp blocks from Making A Lather

Not many rainbows here. I haven't been sewing much. I did finish Aunt Eliza star top this week. When I realized I had very little to show for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy, I tried to quickly sew a few psp 20 /21 blocks for the color purple.

I have 57 blocks finished. I was thinking that if I sash them, I won't have to match seems. But, I have seen so many postage stamp quilts that are really great without sashing. what to do... I guess I will just keep making them until I decide ...

a bit of red from Making A Lather

It was easy to grab the 2 inch strip drawer and cut for tiny houses. I did decide to add other colors to the red. If there was a speck of red, anywhere, I cut it. 

I am running low on the solids for psp 20/21. I need to take a count and see if I need other colors.

blue stuff from Making A Lather

After sorting through the 2 gallon zip lock bag of blue scraps and cutting into useable sizes for  the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy, I had these pieces in the bag that aren't really scraps. They are bigger than 1/4 yard. So, I just folded them and sent them to their homes on the shelves. And, I had the pleasure of an empty plastic bag...... Ready to refill at my leisure.

This week, I decided to build some tiny houses. They are still so fun. I have a million to go before I have a city ...

waffling and blue from Making A Lather

My blue scrap chunk basket is full, but, I have a 2 gallon zip lock bag of odds and ends and leftovers that I need to go through before I cut, hoping there is enough room in the basket for the new.

I had enough blue pieces already cut for the waffle stamp blocks. I did not need to cut anymore, so, I was able to get these sewn quickly for the start of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.

It looks like I really need red, and a little orange for this quilt, and, maybe ...

postage stamp blocks from Making A Lather

 I have some interesting greens this month for the psp 20/21 blocks and the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I'm not sure the photos look as green as they are in person.

It doesn't look like I will have a finish for March from my green ufo list, but, I did move Christmas sparkle along to almost a top. I did decide to make and add 3 more blocks to the quilt. I haven't worked on the green brackets for full stop quilt that Angela is doing. And I didn't get the table runner ...

waffle blocks from Making A Lather

As I am making postage stamp blocks, I am playing around with these cute little waffle blocks. They are trimmed to 5 1/2 and take 10 - 1 1 /2 inch squares. I found them to be very fun and addictive.

I decided I would sit and cut a bunch  of 1 1/2 inch strips for the framework. It takes 16 1/2 - 17 inch strip to cut a matching set. I was able to cut 106 sets in one evening. It helps that I have 1 1/2 inch strips already cut. I threw the leftovers back into ...
