Design Wall - Maybe

I'm bound and determined to create a design wall and it's been quite a challenge for this room. I have a huge studio which is actually a room created from above my three-car garage plus the laundry room. The biggest challenge is that due to the peak of the garage, I have sloped ceilings with only about five feet of 8' ceilings right down the middle of the room! So, I can't have a design wall attached to any wall because of the windows at each end of the room. There's a couple of half walls with pillars that are holding up the roof and they are just in the way.

Anyway, I'd started making a design wall in Baltimore with one blue foam board and this Home Depot only had pink so I'm a bit disappointed they don't have the same background, so I'm going to think about wrapping them before I put up the flannel permanently. For now, I've just sprayed it with removable adhesive and throw up the flannel. I can use it, at least.

For now, I'm just leaning it against the slanted wall in front of the twin bed and will see how long or how well this version of a design wall will last.

Did I mention I got a fabric calculator for Christmas? I really like it for figuring stuff out with scrap yardage. I think, anyway. I have to learn how to use it first.

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.
