yellow sunshine from Making A Lather

I'm anxious to get started with the yellow for the rainbow scrap challenge for the month of February. I have the yellow row for wiggle time. It is such a cute quilt.

and the crayon pieced in yellow

I am going through the drawer of bigger hunks and chunks, and, either sorting them and refolding them. or cutting them into useable sizes. I needed 4 1/2 in strips for 2 of the rainbow quilts and 2 1/2 in strips for some of the quilts. Anything really little, I am cutting 2 1/2 in tumbler blocks or ...

birch trees again from Making A Lather

The color for the February rainbow scrap challenge is yellow, my favorite color. I didn't have time to gather the yellow scraps, yet, but, I had a chance to work on the birch trees at Friday group. I got this far, and then, some little bitty stubborn thread got stuck in the bobbin case, and I couldn't sew any more. bummer.
I cut some flannel kits until I ran out of flannel that I had brought.
Luckily, I have a great machine repair guy at home, and he was able to take it apart, and get my sweet ...

Basket Project – 2018-19 from Lotus Cove Quilting

It started with a gift exchange at Rochester Modern Quilt Guild. We were to make a small container or basket to exchange with other members at our January meeting. Here’s the one I made for the exchange:











The interior fabric is from Mali, and the handles are riveted-on leather tabs. The pattern I found was so great, I also used it to make some Christmas gifts.


These went to my sister-in-law and husband, to coordinate with her MacKenzie-Childs collection. Handles were made from the same fabric as the binding, with wire inserts.


These cat-themed baskets were gifts for my ...

Scrap Sewing Project from Goer

My son and I are working on a little scrap sewing project. The first step of our project was to sort through all of my bags of scraps. (My scraps are currently housed by color in gallon zip lock bags.) It's a bit of an "I Spy" project, so we wanted to pull any interesting scraps that had fun pictures on them. In a few cases, we pulled a piece of interesting fabric from my stash, like those awesome giraffes that I haven't used anywhere yet. We're piecing them together in monochromatic blocks which are rounded out ...

Beary Colourful BOM: Always Growing Yellow-Green Bear from Clever Chameleon

 Yellow-Green Bear of Always Growing by Clever Chameleon

The Always Learning Green Bear from May has been exploring his family tree and he has discovered a cousin! Please welcome the aspirational July Yellow-Green Bear to the Beary Colourful family.

If you spend much time with young children on a regular basis, you will know that they love to think that they are “Big”. And also that they are “Bigger”. Bigger than their siblings….bigger than their peers….. bigger then that mark on the wall that shows how tall they used to be. 

Growth charts never really go out of fashion, do they? The motifs on them might change ...

Leaf-tastic Yellow-Green: Colour Inspiration Tuesday and Link Party from Clever Chameleon

Leaftastic greens color scheme by Clever Chameleon

July is coming! Are you ready!? No?! Join the club and bunker down  – it’s coming anyway! At least that means the next Beary Colourful BOM Bear is on his way.

I am noticing that all my Northern Hemisphere blogging friends are posting lots of pretty Spring and Summery-looking garden posts. Rays of sunshine in my cold grey wintery days. Sadly, our recent wintery days are probably not actually as grey as they should be – we really could do with a lot more rain before Spring arrives to turn the neighbourhood yellow-green again.

 The month is nearly done and the rainbow scrap challenge color will change in May, but, for now I still have yellow on my mind.

I have finished 3 for April in yellow and gold.  I am using 2 1/2 inch strips for mine.

friday quilt group from Making A Lather

I have 3 birch trees blocks finished for April and I have 3 dark gold yet to do. Yellow doesn't photograph well. I made these tree parts from a gifted scrap bag. The rainbow Scrap challenge has been a great motivator to make quilts that I might not have found the time for otherwise. It is much easier to sneak in a few blocks each week/ month. And so much fun keeping it to a certain color. April's color is yellow/gold.

We had a fun day on Friday with our little quilt group. Spring had brought out ...

Colour Inspiration Tuesday: Vintage Port Adelaide from Clever Chameleon

Vintage Inspiration from an Adventure Day to Historic Port Adelaide

On the weekend, our Joey Scouts (6-8yo) had a transport-themed adventure day. We went on a bus, then a tram, then a train, then a boat. Then we went to the Aviation Museum to look at planes, and finally took two more trains back. I don’t know about the kids, but by the time we got home, I was exhausted!

Black and Yellow Geometric Quilt from From My Carolina Home

A friend recently asked me to do a quilt for her, and I was delighted.  She is a fantastic piecer and this beautiful black and yellow quilt just showcased her skills.  Look at all those little bits in the middle of the rectangles!  She’ll slap me for talking about her, so I won’t reveal her name, but this quilt was an absolute joy to quilt.  I spread it out on the longarm bar to make sure I had the backing oriented correctly.
