Ohio Stars & Rails - Update

Just wanted to update my latest project of Quiltville's Ohio Stars and Rails. I've done one star in a light blue and a strip of the rails (red/white) and I know Bonnie said they were going to be 6" squares, but I guess I didn't realize how small and how many I'm going to have to make before my so-called deadline that I sure I won't meet. Now that's positive thinking, right?

Anyway, life has gotten in the way a bit, but I hope to work on it some more today. I need to work on speeding up the stars block if I'm going to finish this by July 4. (I love to dream!!!) If I just have a top by then, I'll be happy.

So, I was just playing with this blog template and I can have a blog list so if you are working on this quilt, I'd love to add your blog so I can see your progress, too! Just let me know.


  1. Hi,
    you need 40 railroad blocks, and 16+25=41 star blocks from what I calculated. If you do it assembyl line, you can make it!

    I am looking forward to seeing what you came up with.

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
