more full stop blocks from Making A Lather

I have a few period blocks for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I am not joining them, until, I start assembling the top. I am still missing one row, but, I am not sure which one. I would like to see if I can keep going on this one instead of putting it in the ufo closet. But, rhododendron mystery at quiltville has officially started and I will turn some attention to that. I still want to keep going on my 5 quilt project, so, we will see.

I ...

A Pile of Mini Mini Quilts from Goer

Welcome to my stop on Bobbie's UFOvember Blog Hop. I shared an intro post with the list of everyone participating in UFOvember at the beginning of the month and a few days ago I shared a list (with photos) of all my WIPs. (I realized today I missed one, so it's been aded to the list.) I find that knowing what all the projects are helps me make decisions about prioritizing what to work on. This week folks were resuming a UFO. "Pick up a UFO right where you left off, get it done, happy ending!"

With a ...

It’s Time for Sashing! from QUilting By-You

I bet you thought that we forgot about our ever-so-patiently-waiting Jacob’s Ladder blocks. It is time to do something with them!

When last we left them we had our 3 trouble maker blocks flagged so we knew what we were dealing with. Now is the time to make the decisions for what to do with these blocks. The end goal for this quilt is to have a bit of a sampler at the shop to showcase some different quilting ideas to show customers when talking about how to quilt their quilt (either by us or by them). With 15 ...

The Current UFO List from Goer

It's UFOvember so I'm updating my dormant list of projects. I lovingly refer to them all as WIPs. They aren't forgotten, unfinished projects that will never see the light of day. They are works in progress, albeit some in a state of hiatus.

Friends, this list is LONG. If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I always tend to have a lot of projects in progress. An "eyes bigger than my stomach" kind of problem. But this is a lot, even for me. And since a lot of them are ...

UFOvember 2021 from Goer

How many quilting UnFinished Objects do you have? Do you know?

I used to post a quarterly list of all the projects here on my blog. I loved it. I could see everything in one place and that meant that I didn't have hidden projects out of sight, out of mind. Nothing surprised me when I opened a closet or cabinet that hadn't been opened in a while. It's been just over two years since my last Finish Along blog post. I'm not really sure how many projects I have now... and I've maybe forgotten ...

Quilt the Seasons from Appalachian Quilts

If you Google "Quilt the Seasons", you will see that a LOT of designers have coined a book with this name.  (I know it is hard to come up with something unique, and I get it.)  By far our most popular book was the Quilt the Seasons book by Pat Sloan.  We whipped up samples of a few of the projects to sell the books and sold out of books long before we even thought about getting them quilted.  Sadly, the book is no longer available.  I regret not grabbing one for myself.  :(

I've mentioned this before...we keep ...

Birdies blocks from Espritpatch

 While emptying a set of draws before our move, I found another long abandonned UFO, my blocks for the Birdie Stitches blocks by Corey Yoder or Coriander Quilts from.... 2011. Yes I know that's 10 years ago. I did quite well with the stitching since I completed 10 of the 12 blocks. The last one was nearly done too but not quite... 

And I had left out block 11 (from November) because it had a turkey for Thanksgiving and I wanted something else more European, which I never got around to do.
I had also cut some of the ...

Tip of the Iceberg. from QUilting By-You

We talk about the tip of the iceberg at home a lot. How icebergs are tricky things…that you can only see a portion above the water while the greater mass lies below the surface. We talk about how the tip of the iceberg represents our final product; the result of our work. The mass below represents the work that it takes to get the result, or the part of the iceberg you can’t see. The boys wanted to start a podcast – so they are learning a lot about the work that lies beneath the surface.

A couple of ...

A quilting we will go................. from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 Well, that was an issue yesterday! I had written the post about the UFOs the day before. But halfway through, I decided it wasn't the post I wanted to write that day. That rarely happens, and to avoid accidentally publishing the post, I set a day and time for it to post later. However, when I hit publish yesterday, I FORGOT to change the publishing date. So -- it didn't get posted at the usual time. 

A few people alerted me to the fact, but I was just starting the embroidery software club by then, and the post had ...

It's all about UFOs from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

OH --- I had set a schedule for this post for tomorrow morning and forgot to take it off. Ooops!

 We had a good session with our UFO group this past weekend. So much is getting accomplished it's blowing my mind, and repeatedly, I hear that the only reason people finished something is that they committed to getting it done for the group!

I have to include myself in that group. I'm working on an applique quilt that I taught as a year-long class in 2015, and I don't seem to have gotten much of it done during ...

scrappy mountain majesties ufo from Making A Lather

For  my Friday quilt group, I dug out another UFO with the intent to move it along. It is always fun to open the project box and stare at a puzzle. My paper work says I started in 2016 and that all the blocks are sewn. It was planned as a boy donation quilt.


Each individual block was sewn but, I needed to sew them into bigger blocks, which I did.

Somehow I ended up with unmatched extra blocks. I saw two options. Make a smaller quilt with what I had, or, go bigger and cut some more. I didn ...

Time to Tweak it a Little. from QUilting By-You

Hopefully we can now get back to our regularly scheduled posting habits!

We will certainly pick up where we left off with our Jacob’s Ladder blocks, but that will have to wait until next time. They are all sitting patiently waiting until it is their turn.

We also fell down a bit on UFO stuff. That’s okay too. I’m sure that we have all realized over the last year or so that sometimes life happens and we have to shift our priorities to take care of those things that are necessary. Hopefully you are all making UFO ...

Birthday Cake and lots of it! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


So when I created a folder for the pictures today, it hit me. Where did August go?? Tomorrow is the last day of this month, and it literally flew by. How the heck did that happen? 

I must confess that I was a bit of a slug yesterday. I had a big nap - too much celebrating or just getting old? A bit of both, but those late nights just don't sit well with me, and if I don't sleep well on top of that? Oh boy! 

And I don't know what the heck is happening to me ...

Impromptu quilt top from Espritpatch

 A break from bag making! Some time ago, while I was going through my UFOs etc, I digged out the blocks for my Impromptu Quilt, with the aim to finish the top to send it for quilting. The top finishes at 90'' square so it is too big for my own frame and after sending my Flabellum for quilting, I thought it would be a good idea to send this one too. The only problem was that

1) the top wasn't anywhere near ready to go

2) I am pressed with time with the house move

Anyway, Kerry kindly ...

Thread, Tension & Free Motion Mavericks from Quilting & Learning

Welcome to week 337 of Free Motion Mavericks. Here is a short update of what's going on with Version 2.0.

Thread & Tension 

Whether I've wanted to or not, I've learned a lot of things making my son's Version 2.0 quilt. At the beginning it was math - the hard way, and now it's quilting with black batting, choosing the thread and making sure that my thread tension is good. 

Back and front of stitching-in-the-ditch


I was really hoping that I could use the same colour of thread for the back, but still have ...

Modern HST from Espritpatch

 Finally, a finish, just before the end of the month! I am so happy that this UFO is no more. It is now a finished quilt that I will be able to gift to a good friend before I leave. I just finished sewing the binding tonight, didn't have that much left to do really.

And here it is, all done, finished, completed, ready to be gifted. Not sure why I took 5 years to get to this point but I am glad it is no longer a pile of blocks in a box.

I used this lovely floral ...

Snow people from Espritpatch

 Another UFO has left the house. I can't even remember when I started these 2 snow people but I think it was over 10 years ago. I was planning to make them for my 2 older children(the youngest wasn't even born...)

They were not that far off really but they've been sitting in a bag in the cupboard for years. 

I think it was time someone gave them the attention they needed!

Just Takes 2 from Espritpatch

 Another quilt-along that I started years ago (in 2012) and that has never been picked up again. Just Take 2 blocks were released twice a month by Brenda Papadakis and the quilt was supposed to be made in 2 colours. I duly started in January 2012 and made a few blocks during the first half of that year and then it was parked for later... 

There were lots of different techniques in the quilt, including a big applique block (Hawaian if I remember well) that I never found the courage to start.

Another bag that I have emptied last week ...

Hearts galore from Espritpatch

 Another very old project... I will confess that I used to be a swap addict! The swap blocks were from before the high speed internet since they were made in 2006!

The idea for this swap was to prepare some blocks with 3 raw edge hearts applique on top of each other. The hearts have an indent on the side and in the middle to be sliced up. This is a variation on the "bull eye pattern".

After the blocks had been swapped, we were supposed to cut them in 4 (in half vertically and horizontally). Next step was to ...
