Finishing Projects

I just read Judy L's blog post about finishing projects and totally agree with her. I'm no spring chicken and it could all end today. So, what do I want to leave behind? Beautiful quilts instead of unfinished projects, I'd say, wouldn't you? However, that's probably not going to happen!!!

Here's my thing--I just hate to focus on just one project. Wonder what that means? Do you think I'm bored? I don't seem to feel that way, I just want to start everything I see. It's probably some sort of disorder or something I should discuss with a therapist, do you think?

So, I'm going to try to narrow down my active projects--it's really hard to leave out 10 projects because they are all just sitting around in the way. Tell myself that it is okay to put them away for awhile and work on a selected few, perhaps? I'm using Bonnie's DD--doing the little pink 9 patches in between the projects, so I'm furthering my DD (which may take forever). Maybe I'll force myself to use active projects between piecing instead.

I think it must be hard-wired in folks that are able to get stuff done. Not sure what the answer is for me...wish I had a clue.

Anyone know a free online quilting therapist that could come up with an answer for me? Surely, someone has 1000 hours to figure me out for free, right?

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.
