stash report July 5, 2020 from Making A Lather

Our guild was gifted fabric from an estate. There were several tables, and we could social distance and take what we wanted. I wanted to add variety to my neutral stash, so I came home with this lovely pile of goodies. It didn't look like much in the overall amount of the fabric that I could have taken home, but, there was still a little over 12 yards in my stack.

stash report June 14, 2020 from Making A Lather

Ordering fabric on the internet is toooo easy. I think these came from green fairy to live at my house. My favorite precut is actually the honey bun. I can cut my own jelly rolls, but I am not fond of cutting 1 1/2 inch strips, so if they do it for me, I am a happy girl. And I really like the mini charms - they are sew cute.

more cleaning from Making A Lather

To the left of my accuquilt, is a little dresser. And, when I cut for a project, I want to cut for the project, and not fold and put away. I have a bad habit of adding the leftover fabric and pieces that need to be dealt with on the table, until it becomes a mountain.


Big pieces make a big difference in cleaning the spot. I found shirt pieces and frolic mystery fabrics and a scrap basket for odds and ends. I found orphan blocks. The white scraps are from cutting triangles for unity mystery quilt. I end up ...

stash report May 31, 2020 from Making A Lather

I added this beautiful fat quarter bundle to my stash with a 60% off coupon at bluprint. I thought the colors were rich, and, I always like florals. I don't have a plan for it. I just wanted to pet it.

stash report May 17, 2020 from Making A Lather

I have uncovered another bag of goodwill fabric from before isolation. According to the look of the room I am organizing, I could find many more. It's a blessing that goodwill is closed. Hopefully, I have lost the habit. that's funny. How could I pass these goodies, if given the chance. However, I do like having less fabric to organize.



This time I have finished birch trees quilt

rug class from Making A Lather

Day 2 of my hubby's back surgery recovery, and, I made a good start on a drop stitch scarf. I'm sure I have altered the pattern with a little boo boo here and there. It is really looking pretty good, considering I was interrupted every 20 minutes. And was bored easily.


I realized I haven't posted about a rug hooking class last week with a teacher from Noblesville that our group invited for a workshop. We are learning shading using her flower pattern. Our choices were purple or red. My kit is the red.


This is our ...

this and that from Making A Lather

My hubby has back surgery Monday. We are in a daze, and, I haven't really been sewing much. I have finished a few more little things. I have a a few shoofly blocks which is a leader/ ender challenge at Quiltville. I am doing the same size as Bonnie which finishes at 4 1/2 inches. So far, I have not cut any triangles for this, but have used leftover triangles I have in a bucket.


I did quick count, and have 40 blocks.


I had a little snowman next on my snowman rug. He is cuter in person ...

to do shoofly from Making A Lather

My hubby's heart catheritization went well - no blockages. But, it was a long day. There were 2 emergency hearts that were the high priority, so we did a lot of waiting. The prceedure was 15 minutes, but we were there from 10:30 am to 9:30 pm. Now, we wait to see if the back surgery will be rescheduled. My mind has been a little absent lately. I was grateful for the fun little bits of machine time I have had. It does soothe the soul. I have a few new shoofly blocks.


And the pile is growing ...

garden party from Making A Lather

I have a corner of garden party together. I am very thrilled with how it looks. That is why I am a scrappy quilter. I love how a quilt with disparate fabrics can look like they were meant to be together. If I wax philosophical, that is how great human relationships are created. Enough, deep thinking, scrappy quilts are just fun.  I started sewing this quilt 6 months ago, and I have made great progress.



I have already been thinking about 2020 and what I want to accomplish. Thankfully, this year has been about a great fabric upheaval, and sorting ...

garden party chain from Making A Lather

I have made 81 chain blocks for my garden party quilt. I really like looking at them like this. The stacks look impressive. It takes a bit of time to make these, and eventually they will be part of a quilt.
Now, I need to trim these and start the setting triangles.


One of my unexpected finds at the Indy quilt show, was an actual rug hooking project. It was in the garage sale among some bags of scraps. I just had to bring it home. I have a plan to make hooked chair pads for my dining room chairs ...
