Working Hard...

I really, really made some headway on the Kids Will Be Kids quilt. I finished the top borders and the blocks and then the bottom border and the inside border of one of the sides. I have some work to do in QuiltCad in order to connect them. So I'm giving up for the night.

I'm leaving to attend my daughter's graduation so I won't be quilting again until Friday.

My eye was kind of funky today, hope things are okay.

Getting my quilting mojo back! Pic maybe tomorrow.

  1. Hi! I just came across your blog, and I can't wait to read your archives, and become a new fan! I just saw the kids will be kids quilt, at a shop on vacation, and I can't find where the pattern is located. I know the shop said from a certain month, in a certain magazine, but I can't remember either. I repeated the name over and over, but with all the pretty colors and fabrics, my mind became mush! I hope you can help!

    I love your quilt!!!

    Thanks!

  2. Hi, "Kids Will Be Kids" is in the November 2008 edition of The Quilter Magazine. Be careful, though, the directions in the magazine are wrong so check out the site's correction. Let me know if you have any other questions.

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!!!

Yahoo!!!

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.
