Finished Ohio Stars and Rails

Now, on to the rows!!!

I just don't seem to have enough time to do all the steps! Life just gets in the way!

If you see anything that I should change about the placement of the blocks, be sure to tell me. I've looked and looked to be sure the rails are going in the right direction and that all the Ohio Stars really are stars!

Check out my makeshift design wall. It's two pieces of flannel sewn together and draped over two four-foot wide closed closet doors secured with plastic over-the-door hooks. Trouble is it's in the bonus room where the huge TV is located and two huge reclining couches. The couch is in the way, so all my design wall photos are going to slightly skewed.

Yikes, just went to look at Bonnie's Ohio Stars and Rails and it looks like I have to shift some blocks so there are stars at all four corners, what do you think? They are just pinned for now. Ugh, does this mean I might need to make more????? Comments welcomed.


  1. To get stars in all four corner,I think you would need an uneven number of rows. I think it looks great like this.

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.
