Pincushion Project

I found this pinscushion today and want to make a couple to hang several places. I'll add that to my list of to-dos.

I'm still working on the borders for the Quilt Along with Judy L. I think I'll use them for in between projects.

I still have the Brown Bear, Brown Bear loaded...waiting for a decision on what quilting pattern to use.

Still have to attach the binding on my Caterpillar quilt.

I have the Kids Will Be Kids quilt that goes on the HQ16 next.

I need to get going on the Calendar Quilt Challenge...need to finish February and start March...yikes, how did that happen?

I've decided that my design wall needs a frame. It can still be a bit portable, but it keeps bending in the middle where the two foam boards meet so I thought a frame would help. Boy, do I wish I didn't have slanted ceilings in this huge studio. I just don't have the height in this room to place it against the wall...whine, whine, whine! I should take photos of the room...

No pics yet. Sorry. The good news is I got an iPhone and maybe the camera on that will be better for sharing pics here.

How's that for a list? I love making lists, just have trouble crossing things off.



  1. I have the foam board and the flannel for my design board, but haven't put it together yet. It's on my list of to do's. Yep, I like making lists too! Once I finish the tote I started yesterday maybe I'll get my design wall on the wall!! Wish me luck, Barb

  2. Temporarily, I just put two pieces of foam together with duct tape and leaned it up against a pillar (slanted ceilings, so I don't have a wall tall enough) in the middle of the room. However, it is bending at the seam at the pillar. I'd really like it to be on wheels, but that would take engineering/talent and I haven't a slick of either. LOL Good luck with the tote and wall!!!

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.
