Hungry Caterpillar

So, I need to get the Hungry Caterpillar quilt finished for a birthday by Monday or Tuesday so it can be shipped off. I might make a doll quilt to match if time permits.

It's just a panel and a bunch of borders, but it's coming along. Can't work at all today on it, so tomorrow I'll stay focused.

The Kids Will Be Kids quilt had stripes on the inner border and I followed the directions and made the stripes match as if there were no piecing of the longer borders. However, I did the next two borders with straight seams and they looked just awful, so I've been ripping out and mitering the seams--what a great way to build your stash--NOT!!!! What a waste. I do like it better and that's all that counts, right?

Off to babysit today and will check in later tonight or tomorrow. I do want to do Pat Sloan's OP Challenge if I can fit it in, but it will probably be over before I can jump in with both feet.

I also have to finish a project for the Project of the Month online group I joined. Sigh.

Oh, and I need to finish January and start on February for the Calendar Quilt Challenge. Sigh--twice.

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.
