boho blocks from Making A Lather

My quilt guild had an open sew at the library Saturday. I took  all my boho heart stuff, hoping to sort, and, organize, yet, again. I want to get this done. I feel like I am close, and, it is a real possibility. If, I stick to it, I can see it done in the next 2 weeks. I made these blocks and joined as much as possible together. These are from group 3.

group 4
I am looking at the 4th and last group of blocks to sew next.

Quilting Tools: Accuquilt Go! from Becca's Crazy Projects

I recently ordered the 8 Inch Qube from Accuquilt. I was inspired by Chris Marchini, Rose City Originals, to buy the Qube. He has a series of random quilt blocks made with the Qube and it just seemed like so much fun! Accuquilt was having a sale so that made it even better. 
I've had my Accuquilt Go! for several years now. When I wanted to see how long I've had it, I found a post from 2014. Not as nice as this post from 2015 that shows a fun tumbler quilt. That quilt is on my bed ...

frolic finish from Making A Lather

 I have finished my one monthly goal for November. I finished frolic quiltville mystery quilt from 2019. I kept current on the clues until it was time to assemble the blocks. That seems to be my undoing. I take longer to do that, I guess. I really like the colors and pattern of the blocks. This will be my 19th finished quiltville mystery quilt. I have a page here that shows them from the first to the last that I have done. I still have rhododendron to quilt and grassy creek to add borders.

I used a flannel back and ...

Sewing again from Quilt in Progress

I haven’t sewn or quilted for a while, once I got the last baby quilt finished. My husband advanced progression in the Alzheimer’s disease. He was placed in a nursing home where he died peacefully. It has been a rough several months for me, but I’m learning again all that makes me happy.

First, I wanted something to fill my time like a part-time job, but without the exposure to public. I will have to live as if my immunity is very low, just to protect my health. I found a flea market in a place I ...

Blueberry Charm from Becca's Crazy Projects

How old is that fabric? Well, according to the label, this is from the December 2011 Moda Charm Pack Club. Fat Quarter Shop still has a charm pack club if you want to stock up for the next decade or so. 
I'm a big fan of webbing the top when sewing blocks into rows. New to the idea? Check Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville. Her great tutorial gives your the in, outs, and whys of webbing a quilt top. I mostly like it because I am less likely to make layout mistakes. 
The center of the quilt is ready for ...

Small Rectangles FINISHED from Wedding Dress Blue

This one was a while coming, just because it is a lot of cutting. The good news is it is all scraps (not that you can tell by looking at the scrap bins).

It is based on THIS BLOCK, but uses rectangles cut at 2″x 3-1/2″. Eighteen of them per block.

There are 110 blocks in all and it finishes at about 90″ x 99″.

It doesn’t have a home yet, but I love just looking at it for now. So cheerful.

rhododendron progress from Making A Lather

 It has been soooo cold here this past weekend, and we are still recovering from covid. There was nothing to do but work on rhododendron mystery quilt from last year.

I added inner and outer borders. I may change the cornerstones. I could not find the ones I made during the mystery. And I didn't want to be creative. I wanted it done.

I made the back from a sheet and a leftover pink piece from another back. It was almost to much math for me.

I even cut and made the binding. I can see the end in ...

strings for Kismet from Making A Lather

I spent a few evenings at the treadle making string units. I was trying to make ahead, the units for the fish school blocks, I have been making for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I cut fish school blocks for the leader/ ender challenge 2021 and made  quite a few, but, didn't keep up for the year. So, this year I cut for RSC. And, about that time, Bonnie Hunter shared her pattern kismet of her finished fish school. I decided, I wasn't far enough along, that I couldn't switch to kismet for finishing my ...

3. I am working on the sashings of dotty bow ties.  The bow tie blocks are made. I am slowly adding a sashing to the center of each block, 10 at a time ...

Jelly Roll Discovery FINISHED (and mini tutorial) from Wedding Dress Blue

I found the idea in a book and made a baby quilt version some time ago.

There were good intentions of doing a quilt along, but that just isn’t happening right now. Better to share the finish, than hope for change soon.

But, if you have a jelly roll laying around, this might just be the idea.

SO, here is a mini-tutorial: Each block finishes at 10″ square. The sashing is cut at 2-1/2″ and the outside border at 3-1/2″. It finishes at approximately 64″ square. It will be gifted to a teacher friend this week. Seems ...

Blueberry Charm from Becca's Crazy Projects

Several years ago I subscribed to the Moda Charm Pack Club. At the time, the Fat Quarter Shop would send six of the same 5" charm pack to you every month. It was great! It was also a way to fill up my collection with 5" charms. I gave up the subscription a while back but I still have loads of charm packs. Sometimes I even have some coordinating yardage. 

Last weekend I pulled out a stack along with two one-yard cuts of coordinating fabric. This is Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs. 
The first step was to sort those ...

going at a snails pace from Making A Lather

Everything here has stopped as we are covid positive. I did play with snail trails again before....

I went into the grocery store Friday morning, early, and, when I came out, I had a surprise. By the end of the day, we had several inches. It was pretty, but, the day before it was nearly 70 degrees.

Faire And Square Complete from Wedding Dress Blue

This quilt started as inspiration based on a favorite sweater of mine.

There are a total of nine block styles and each finished at 6″.

Perhaps the unique idea was making the setting triangles from different colors of fabric.

I like the texture it gives.

The quilt finishes at 70″ square.
