I've Finished!

Wow, it is so easy to let posting to your blog slip. I'm still reading all of yours, though.

Happy Thanksgiving! Gained three pounds! Not good...back to Wii Fit tonight.

I finished the baby quilt and even made a label. I used variegated thread leftover from my Take 5 quilt...big mistake. It shows up in all the wrong places. I really need someone to hold my hand when I make these decisions. Maybe one day, I'll get brave and take a photo and share it with all of you. I didn't really "connect" my rows so that adds to the ugly. My daughter seems happy with it, but left it behind when she went home. I thought you'd want to see it finished.

Anyway, my next project is to make the smocking Christmas dresses so it's doubtful that I'll do some quilting in the next two weeks. Woe is me.

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.
