More Mother Goose

I completely finished cutting the Mother Goose quilt today (except the 8" panels - scared!!) and have a 12" x 12" scrapbooking box full of the goodies. This is what I'm going to do with each project, so the pieces don't get lost. I use binder clips rather than baggies, not sure why, oh, probably because they were up in the "office" part of my studio and the baggies were way down in the kitchen.

So, tomorrow, I'm going to play tennis and take my first golf lesson - unless it rains and then I will start again on my Ohio Stars & Rails by finishing the rows and maybe cut a border or two. If I end up playing tennis, I need to buy some new blades and numerous other things, so I won't get to sewing.

I plan to also start on the HSTs for Mother Goose and use them as leaders and enders. I really want this to be ready by November 1 as that is my daughter's due date!!!

So, that's my update for today. I found a bunch of Web sites that I want to check out...I'll let you know if I find anything interesting.

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.
