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!!!

Online Quilt Festival - Spring 2009

What a great idea to host an online Quilt Festival! Thanks to Amy @ Park City Girl! Be sure to stop by and add your favorite quilt!

Well, I really want to join in this huge event, so I'm hoping that an almost completed quilt will qualify! I've chosen my Hungry Caterpillar quilt as my favorite because it is my best to date and who doesn't want to show their best? Of course, I have a long way to go, but I'm learning with each and every quilt.

This quilt's story goes like this...it was a kit! I'm not ready to chose my own fabrics/colors just yet (may never be!). I got the kit and went to work trying to hit the one-year old granddaughter's birthday (missed it, of course). I simply loved its simplicity since it was panels that I just put together, but it was a good ego boost for this quilting novice, not to mention the practice I'd gotten!

So, I loaded on my new HQ16 with the ProStitcher and it sat until I found a digital pattern to go with it. Once again, I…
