Party Mints - Boy

Taking a break from the two mystery quilts and pieced the boy version of "Party Mints" that I bought as a kit at the Quilt Box in Dry Ridge, KY.

The rows--not sewn together yet. Above them is the girl version.

What am I going to do with all the yellow in that one row? The cornerstones should have been different than the larger blocks in that row. I should have taken a photo before I sewed the blocks. Perhaps I would have seen that? Nah, maybe not. I'll move them around and see if it will work or rip and re-sew some seams.

Gloria - told you I didn't have an eye for color


  1. Hey there! Have added you to my list and will pop you on my side bar list later this afternoon. At the I'll list you as Hooked on QUilting unless you get back to me with your first name. Hoping email will be back up tonight, but after three and a half days, not holding my breath!! Just spending most of the day stitching instead and pretending that I do not live in a technological age - well, except for the DVD player of course! Tee! Hee! Hee! Happy stitching and Bear Hugs!

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 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…
