5 quilts from Making A Lather

It's time for me to plan the week and assess how I have done on my goals.  I have 5 quilts I am focusing on right now. I try to work on one task for each quilt at a time working through all five before moving on to the next set of tasks.

1.checkered past -The next step was to make 40 sashings. I sewed 1 1/2 inch creams to 1 1/2 inch shirt strips on the treadle. I pressed and subcut them to the size of the block. tada


But, then, I couldn't help ...

boho heart from Making A Lather

 I took pictures of our last Friday group - I don't always remember. Linda was missing. I believe we are on week 7 of Boho heart. I have just finished week 4. I am not a big fan of making one block at a time. I prefer chain piecing - start sewing and keep going.

Sue's red and purple version

My rainbow version

We have been harvesting longevity spinach. This is new to us this year. And it is a prolific plant. Nothing killed it. And it didn't bolt like regular spinach.  We didn't like it cooked plain ...

sink or swim at retreat from Making A Lather

Oh my - my retreat story. I just couldn't find a project to work on except my sea swept quilt. And I was closing in on finishing all the blocks I would need. But, I thought it would just take a couple of hours. Silly me, thinking I needed another project.  Just as I finished sewing 388 triangles to 97 diamonds, and began to trim them, Someone asked me what I was making. So I showed her my snails trail blocks and how this was the sashing.   And, Oh no,  they were too small for the block. I had chosen ...

crossed strings from Making A Lather

Making the longer pieces for crossed strings, although challenging to find long enough pieces, is straightforward. sewing and cutting the side pieces takes a bit longer. I was aiming for 48 blocks. Once again, string piecing makes a mess. I grab a handful, and see if I can pull pieces to use out of the pile. 


After the piece is made and white was added, I still needed to cut it in half.


Of course, the best part is seeing all the block variations with all the different leftover bits and pieces from other projects.

progress from Making A Lather

Sometimes, I forget to show the slow progress of some on going projects. I have sew days that don't seem to make any dents in the quilt making process. But, I know they do. And that has to be enough.

I am still hunting for old projects as I am trying to reorganize and label boxes, it consumes me. I have been very creative at storage, I must say.

Maple syrup is done. Hubby has it all put away for another year. It was my first year to trek around the trees and help with the buckets of sap ...
