Gossamer Petals - Found it!

Oh, my goodness, I just found a kit (includes backing!) called Gossamer Petals that I bought way back in 2007, so I added it to my list of unfinished projects. Have you really looked at my list. Surely, I'll get all these done, right? Wow, I really need to get some of these quilts done so I can have some scrap fabric!

I got side-tracked again today, instead of starting my "Kids Will Be Kids" quilt top, I started a new mystery quilt by Lesley at Webequilts that started today. I've gotten some strips cut, but I had a heck of a time coming up with enough fabric to do this and I'm not thrilled with my colors that I'm kind of stuck with in order to complete it. I really wanted to have one more quilt top to do on my HQ Pro-Stitcher. They have upgraded the software and I wanted to practice and be sure the upgrade goes well before I do a quilt for new grandson. He's two months old today!

I'll come back and post the stacks of cut fabric when I'm finished.

Does anyone have a secret of how they stay on-task? I just seem to jump from here to here to here...think I'll ever go back?

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?

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!!!


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.
