a bit of sunshine from Making A Lather

I didn't do much yellow sewing for the rainbow scrap challenge. I have scraptastic star and the row x row to do yet. I cut the pieces for the row x row. I needed 104 each of yellow and white.


I chain stitched them together in groups of ten, in between other sewing. It gets a little boring otherwise.


I trimmed them each evening. They didn't need much trimming, but, I wasn't taking any chances.


Then I pressed them.


 I did sew 4 together.


Why didn't I do more? I was working to finish this quilt ...

Twins have a mysterious connection, even when it comes to quilting! 

In 1999, Lisa Norton decided to learn how to quilt, so she signed up for a Block of the Month program. By some strange coincidence, her identical twin Lora Zmak did the exact same thing—1,000 miles away!

Showcase Quilt from Expect Moore

Today I’m sharing something fun … I did a little pattern testing for Erin at Love Sew Modern. Yes, life around here gets busy, and having two kids at home doing pandemic school hasn’t made my life any less hectic … but I love being able to work with other quilters in the quilting community. […]

leader and enders from Making A Lather

I just wanted to sew a little, so I grabbed the leader/enders near my machine, and made a few. I haven't felt well - it wasn't covid. It has been hard to want to sew.

I think I am on the mend, and these cute baskets are part of good medicine.

Ein Jahr (fast) ohne Workshops from Quiltmanufaktur

Ich gebe so wahnsinnig gerne Workshops! Das Jahr hat mir aber ordentlich einen Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht... In der Quiltmanufaktur musste ich ab März alle geplanten Kurse absagen. Der Platz ist einfach zu gering, als dass ich für das nötige Hygiene Konzept sorgen kann. Die Vorstellung, dass sich meine Kunden hier unter solchen Umständen anstecken, lässt es mir kalt den Rücken runter laufen!

Umso schöner, das ich Anfang des Monats zu einem Workshop in die Schweiz zu BERNINA reisen durfte. Ich hatte im Januar einen neuen Workshop konzipiert, bei dem es um Verschnitt Technik geht. Den Kurs habe ich ...

to do: new project box and giveaway from Making A Lather

 I decided it was time to sort another project box. This one was a bit confusing. I am trying to be very hard core on making decisions, but, it is very difficult for me not to finish everything I come across, or rather, to believe I will finish everything. But, reality, says otherwise. 

I have labels on the boxes to help figure out what I was planning. Still, The black elastic doesn't appear to belong to anything in the box.hmmmm


I don't remember where I bought this panel, but, I loved it. I have had it in ...

Sewing Machines – How to Choose? from QUilting By-You

I will come right out and say that Char and I have Viking machines. It’s not the only machine that we have sewn on, but it is the brand of sewing machine that we currently use for our every day sewing needs.

This will not be a run down on every machine brand out there, because I’m sure there are some brands that I am not familiar with, and I’m not sure that would really be helpful. My favorite brand may not be what is best for you!

So, how do you choose? There are lots of ...

De quilts die ik onderhanden heb.... from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer

Niet dat ik geen plannen en ideeën heb om aan iets nieuws te beginnen maar omdat ik nog zoveel niet af heb ben ik maar even zo verstandig ( ahum) om eerst maar even een poging doen om de oudjes af te maken....



Zo is er nog altijd de vingerhoedjesquilt, Hier voor moet er nog gestempeld en geknipt worden. Nog een flink aantal rijen moeten gemaakt worden. Dit gaat met de hand. En de rijen uiteindelijk aan elkaar maken gaat wel weer machinaal. Zeker weten doe ik het nog niet maar ik ben nu van plan om ook het doorquilten op ...

4 patch x finish from Making A Lather

I began this 4 patch x in  January 2016. It's a bonnie Hunter pattern from her book more adventures with leaders and enders. I enjoyed the piecing, especially the 4 patches. There is something classic about random 4 patches made from scraps. I love yellow as a color, so, I had no trouble going with the same color scheme as Bonnie.

74 x 84




I used a vintage calico for the binding. Using something like that makes me smile. I know it was vintage, as it was only 36 inches wide. I used a left edge foot, and, attached ...

more yellow sunshine from Making A Lather

If it were not for the yellow in my rainbow scrap challenge blocks, there would be no sunshine in Indiana these days. We have had dreary dark days already. with a twinge of cold. Hubby had to clean out the garden with the threat of frost.  I have had a cold. How do you catch a cold in this sterile world these days.?

I am moving along on my blocks for October. It's hard to think, we are almost done with the challenge for 2020. I have a small basket of ufos to work on for next year. Most ...

But, early in his career, he started to experiment—and that’s how he became one of the most famous artists of all time. Picasso said, “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”

stash buster from Making A Lather

So funny.... definitely me

I have a few more stash buster 2020 blocks made. If I have a scrap that I can get a 3 1/2 inch strip and a matching 2 inch strip, I will put it back for this block. Then I cut it until I can't get any more matching sets. I have several repeats this way, but then the scrap is gone. 




I have a bin of 2 1/2 inch hsts and matching 2 1/2 inch squares. I cut the wedding ring blocks the same way. I need 16 hsts and 4 ...

Prudence Dissents from Becca's Crazy Projects

Blogger still hasn't gotten their crap together with this new tool. Geez. When the feedback form doesn't work you know they've got their best people working on the upgrade. 
Back to quilting. This past weekend I got back to work on this fun little quilt. You can read more about this project in my first post about Prudence. Admittedly, I got better at putting the units together as I went along. 
I got to this point and realized I needed to take another look at the lily. I sat down with Electric Quilt but just couldn't ...
