Still working...

Remember that Yahoo! group I started called QuiltWatchers? Well, I mentioned it to another group and got some others that are in the same boat and they joined!!! We are having daily or weekly or monthly or whenever you are in a slump check-ins! I'm doing daily so I know every single day where to focus.

I've given the group a tag line - GQD (Get Quilts Done or Getting Quilts Done), isn't that great? If Nike can "Just Do It" why can't we "Get Quilts Done!

One of the members made a great rotation chart and shared it with the group. It has 80 blocks that each one represent a 15-minute time frame that you work on a particular quilt. So, if you just want to play around and rotate each day, you'll know what quilt you should work on that day and move several quilts forward all at one time! Pretty cool beans! I have to stay focused, but after that, I'm going to be rotating the heck out of some projects!

Update on my Kids Will Be Kids quilt - main focus right now. I only have the outside border on one side left and it moves to a whole different level of completion! Pics soon.



  1. I'll have to look up your group. I feel like I should finish my projects before I die--and who knows? If I did, I'm just leaving a pile of rags, unless, they are completed quilts.

  2. My pile of rags would not be appreciated AT ALL! LOL

    Glad you joined our little group; just getting it started!

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.
