Mom finished assembling her Dash top and she’ll leave it here for me to quilt. Pattern is from Fabric Cafe and we used a small amount of a 4th fabric and had extra yardage of the print too so we made that border wider. Its easy to adapt these 3 Yard patterns to meet your needs using more than 3 fabrics, changing the borders, or adding more blocks.

While Mom was finishing that top, I finished all the blocks for my lantern quilt and I’m going to set them aside until after Mom’s visit because I’ll want to throw them up on the design wall and arrange them before I assemble the top.

Next up – Mom started piecing a quilt from a kit and I decided to make another Plus quilt. This was my first one made in 2016.

The one I’m making now will be larger so I quickly drafted it out and did a few calculations then I grabbed a Jelly Roll and started sewing. This one never made it to the website so when I’m done I’ll write up some brief notes and add it.

Tonight I also machine stitched the binding on the last of the 3 yard quilts I quilted during the Maine sew along and I’ll hand stitch it down tomorrow night. I’m going to crochet a while now before I head up to bed to read.


  1. Love seeing your mom!!  What a blessing to have ‘sew’ much time with her

  2. I like the added pink fabric, it gives a different look. I bought both books from Amazon and got them in one day, we have huge warehouses here for Amazon. I would like your pattern for the plus quilt, I made one years ago but it was complicated as it fit into the other plus blocks. Very pretty but you definitely had to have a design wall.
