Sunday Best Update

Yikes, this took way longer than it should have! Lots went wrong.

I'd cut four colored blocks too small and they were the pretty ones. So I cut new ones, but from the not-so-pretty leftover charms.

I'd sewn the rows together and didn't like the colors, so I just flipped the blocks around and tweaked the colors. Didn't look at the layout and it was so screwed up!!! So, took it all out and put it back together with great care to watch the pattern and to try to keep the colors pleasing.

Check it out and look for mistakes and let me know, okay?

Ugh!! It took twice as long as it should have. On to the borders.



  1. well I'd never have known that you had any issues! It looks great to me :)

  2. Thanks, maybe I should post the photo that shows my mistakes!!!! It was so obvious, but it took a photo for me to see it.

  3. I,too, think it looks great. You've got great colors and movement in the layout.
    Remember, making mistakes helps us learn! (or so I've been told) :o)

  4. Hi Gloria...Sunday Best is looking good! Can you e-mail Carrie concerning your Year of Schnibbles win? Thanks so much!

  5. I won!!! Can't believe it! Will get in touch with Carrie!!!Thank you for letting me know.

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.
