eliza from Making A Lather

I have found a large piece of red gingham in my stash that I like for the sashings for Aunt Eliza'a star. I think I want to do a nine patch in the center of the sashing. This is my may one monthly goal., and I need to get going on it if I want to get it done.

I have ALL the 16 patch blocks made for the quilted twins free pattern called swingin checkerboard. I am not sure if I will look to the next step or put it away for a bit. This has certainly been ...

I am rounding up all the light carolina chain blocks and finishing the cutting, and, sewing the ones I need for the quilt. I have many of the dark ones made as well, but, I am trying to get the light ones to the finish. I found some more tucked away. I thought they were dark background. I've cut some more dark squares to finish what I need.

new label maker from Making A Lather

I have a strange new addiction. My old label maker was acting funny, and, I couldn't read the labels on the project boxes during a search.  I happened to find this label maker at goodwill, and, had no idea if it would work or not. I took the chance and ordered the cartridges.  I really, really like it, and, all I want to do is re sort all my project boxes and add the new labels. 

First, I was happy. Then, I was depressed - I have way to many. Then, I was content to just keep after it.  Now ...

swingin checkerboard quilt from Making A Lather

 I have been collecting pink and green scraps for a quilted twins free pattern called swingin checkerboard. This is one of those patterns that you collect, sew forever in between other projects, sew sew sew, and love the whole process until it is finally a quilt. I am in no hurry. One thing I have noticed with Becky's patterns, is that they are relatively easy to have a successful result, and, look much more complicated than they were to make. 


I have a box with 2,112 -2 inch squares sewn into sets of 4. I started in ...

swingin checkerboard from Making A Lather

I have a few minutes in the evening to sew on my treadle - I really didn't want to start a new project, but, I wanted to make a quilted twins quilt called swingin checkerboard, this year, and didn't get to it. So, I am giving myself permission to just sew a few strips together while watching conference in the evening.

That is, until, I become consumed with the project, and it takes over what I am doing. I have quilter's ADD, I guess. First, I just cut a few strip sets to see what they would look ...
