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.

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 ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... But Now A Little Less! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

It's been a hot minute since I posted about my scrappy endeavors, but since I hadn't had much time to work on anything scrappy, I didn't have anything interest to share.  But today I have a flimsy finished!!

Here's what it looked like Tuesday night when I shared it with my sewing sisters at church. But it was still a hair small for what we needed.


Here's a close-up shot - I took it on an angle and it looks really different here!


I found a beautiful green Modernist print by Joel Dewberry in ...

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 ...

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.

blossom blocks finished from Making A Lather

I worked on the quilt blossom time through the year in 2022 making the blossoms by color from the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I needed 140 and I have finished 140. This project is retiring to the ufo closet, hopefully, for a short vacation before finishing.


I went through my black 2 inch strip bag and made a few more zippers.


 
I need 23 more zippers. There is a chance that with brown next month and odd colors in december, I can have the zipper blocks all made by the end of the month. And, then, these blocks ...

finish scrappy twirl from Making A Lather

I started this quilt in 2018 and I called it template twirls. I made it using the crazy 6 templates from creative grids as part of an experiment. I was determined to go through my templates, at the time, or get rid of them. I made several quilts or tops at the time, and had so much fun, I kept the templates LOL

This is a great use for all the little bits of strings and crumbs

60 x 70 and the sun was funny for the photo


I quilted all over bubbles and added the binding by machine.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I pieced this scrappy bricks top for Annapolis Quilts for Kids. I think these always come out great. 
This one was pieced by Mary. I used a fun ball and bat quilting motif for this one. Both will be headed to Annapolis Quilts for Kids for binding and eventual gifting to children in need.

16 patch blocks from Making A Lather

I blogged about my UFO dilemma here. I now have 20 blocks finished, enough for a lap size quilt. I have certainly had fun making these, but, what to do with them, now. I have all but a bit of the scraps used, and, I am ready to move on from here. I don't want to make a quilt. I am guessing I will put them into the parts department.


 
chicken breast was on sale this week. I decided to can some of it for easy dinners.

zipping along from Making A Lather

Once, I started finishing my zipper blocks instead of doing them with the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy, I just kept sewing most of the forgotten ones. I do enjoy making them, once, I start. It is a fun surprise each time I finish one to see how they look. It was a nice break after working on the top of rhododendron mystery.

blossom blocks from Making A Lather

I made a few blossom time blocks as part of my rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I finished the center of rhododendron quiltville mystery


I made zipper blocks. I put frolic quiltville mystery quilt on the longarm as part of my one monthly goal.

I have been ironing scraps from a gifted bag.


I have been enjoying wonderful fall weather. It is still 70 during the day with pretty aqua blue skies. I am not looking to plunging into total darkness with changing our clocks back, tomorrow.

rhododendron is pieced from Making A Lather

With just a little bit of fall weather, I took the chance to take a photo outside of Rhododendron mystery quilt, ready for borders. I really am uncomfortable cutting the edge off a quilt. So, I will have to work up the courage. Next, is a turquoise inner border and a pieced outer border. So glad to have this almost done, before the new mystery starts in November. The real mystery is, where did I put the turquoise fabric?


The nasturtiums are still alive.

One monthly goal frolic from Making A Lather

I left frolic as a top in 2020. It required a border decision. I want to finish it for my November one monthly goal. Especially if, I want to make the new quiltville mystery, Chilhowie. I have all 18 of them made until this one, and grassy creek as a top, and rhododendron almost a top. I have a page at the top of the blog with pictures in order. I am not going to add another border. It is time to move it along.


 I was gifted 2 big bags of scraps from someone who has not been converted ...

5 quilts October 31, 2022 from Making A Lather

 And just like that- October is over. My goodness, it was fast. I have had a swollen sore thumb and have not felt like sewing for a week. It will be 3 weeks before the hand doctor can see me. That gives me a time line. One or two days before the appointment, it will be miraculously cured. haha
