retreat and one monthly goal from Making A Lather

Our guild had another open sew Saturday. I took what I had done on bonnie Hunter quilt zuckerwatte from her book string fling, and, decided to see how far I could get. With just 20 minutes to spare, I had the center top finished. It was a great boost. I had started at the beginning of January with only string blocks made. I cut a gazillion  HSTS - ( half square triangles ) ... sewn a bunch together, and made  rows. and blocks. 

    

Now that we have a new month, it is time to refocus on another set of goals. My one monthly goal ...

phd 2021 from Making A Lather

I have had a hard time this year setting goals for next year. Maybe, because it has been an uncertain year. And yet, I finished the most ufo projects I have ever done in a single year. Now, that I think of it, I might be tired of finishing, but, I have many more to finish. I am not sure how to find the balance between finishing to accomplish, and starting new to enjoy. The more I stick to a list, the less I quilt.

Still, I've made my list for next year and the PHD 21.

1. Double ...

Ufo progress from Making A Lather

I have finished 2 ufos so far for June and I have finished 10 for the year. The goal for ufos and the phd 2020 was 12. However, not all the ufos I have finished, were on my original list. I'm not sure how that counts. But, it has motivated me for sure. Countryside cottage is here. And silent night is here.


I've made progress on a few other projects from the list. Frolic mystery and unicorn quilt are ready to be quilted.


I am moving the rainbow projects started this year along - shine and row x row ...

frolic is a top? from Making A Lather

The top for quiltville frolic mystery quilt is finished as per the pattern. And, I was ready to quilt it. I realized, if I add borders, it would be bigger for a bed.
I didn't plan on going bigger, but, it seems an off - size this way.
It stalls until I make a decision.


When I took to quilting in earnest, borders were my least favorite part of the process. I left many almost finished quilts in the ufo pile to avoid borders. I had to decide how to fix that problem. It wasn't easy, but, I can ...

this and that from Making A Lather

I am working on a customer quilt to pass the time. I really like her colors.


I have the border pieces done for frolic mystery quilt. I just have to get brave enough to cut/trim the edges to add the borders


And I have made more shoofly blocks. Working with tiny scraps has been therapeutic, but I also realize, I don't need any "real" fabric. I could make a million quilts with just tiny little scraps and never see the end of them.

frolic top from Making A Lather

I spent an afternoon at Church as the second person for teaching a young boy having trouble with school. My job was easy. Just be there as a back up. I decided I would bring my sewing machine, and, take advantage of a floor to layout the rest of my frolic mystery quilt.
By mid afternoon, all the parts were sewn and I had 2 halves left to put together.


Before I went home, I had the top together this far. All that is left are the borders.

one monthly goal and frolic from Making A Lather

It was so nice yesterday, we took a walk in the park. There was just a little bit of snow left under the fallen tree. Spring is close I can feel it.


Friday group I had a chance to layout  frolic and make the center row and the smaller one before it. It is all downhill from here. There is a lot of pinning and matching. It was more fun to sit and pin when in the company of other quilter friends. With every row, I like it better.


This is part of my one monthly goal for March. I ...

frolic rows from Making A Lather

My husband was scheduled to have back surgery today, but his cardiologist wanted to do a heart cath first, so the back surgery was cancelled. What a disappointment. But, we will still be visiting the hospital for the heart cath, and see what road that takes us down.

Friday group met, and I worked a little bit on rows for frolic mystery quilt. There is a lot of pinning involved in piecing these together.


And, there was no mention in the directions about joining the sashings together with the navy 1 1/2 inch square we cut earlier in clue ...

frolic 1/2 blocks from Making A Lather

Yesterday I had some great comments and my hand spazzed and I hit delete. Is there a way in blogger to find them?

Ok, I think I have made it to the assembly stage of frolic mystery quilt. I think I can relax and set it aside for a bit. I could use the break for my brain. And it will be fun to think about other projects. I have had an Editya Sitar brand new quilt kit I have wanted to make since last fall. I keep postponing it for lack of brain power. And I need to finish ...

frolic blocks from Making A Lather

All of my frolic mystery quilt blocks are finished. They are not all matched sets. There were 4 blocks at the end that were only close enough. Those 4 will be buried in the mix and won't be that noticeable. We will say that they are part of the "charm". They are not my best work, either. I really just want them done, and I am not resewing any points. This mystery has seemed like a chore, but I am persevering. The aqua is very light and looks washed out in the pictures.


I need to make the half ...

~ Juggling Projects ~ 50% OFF SALE ~ from Podunk Pretties

How many projects can a quilter juggle at one time?  There's no definitive answer.  Typically I don't like to juggle projects but every now and again it becomes a necessity.   The project first in the toss is the Flower Sugar Rose Kiss fabrics.  This one is long overdue.  She's almost complete and the pattern should be ready to publish within the next week or two.  The plan was to keep the pattern and quilting quick and easy but once I got this cutie on the quilt frame my quilting instinct had different plans.  It's not quite ...

~ Bonnie Hunter 2019 Mystery ~ Frolic ~ from Podunk Pretties

Autumn is the best time of year.  I love the cooler temperatures, the warm colors in nature and the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt.  This year the mystery quilt is called Frolic.  The clues for the quilt are FREE while the quilt along is in progress. So be sure to save the free PDF's to your computer each week.  Yes! each week.  That's why I like this mystery quilt.  It moves along at a much faster pace than most.  Once a month quilt alongs are a quilt killer in my world.  I lose interest.


Bonnie's quilt along (in ...
