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!!!


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.
