My Bad - A New Post


So, it's been awhile since I posted--my bad. I'm sorry, life just got in the way. I've also found that I love competitive tennis, both singles and doubles and, since I don't have a tennis court in my back yard, I have to drive the 20 minutes to/from my indoor tennis club. This sucks time away from quilting. No excuses, I really need to get my priorities straight!!

I've been trying to get caught up on my quilt blog reading and I've found a ton of new projects to start!! Haven't finished anything in awhile, so why not just start new ones? Do you see anything wrong with the idea???

First, I just got a notice that I need to finish my Downy quilt, so I've centered it on the backing they provided and I'm going to quilt it today...I hope.

  1. I'm working on my Downy quilt as well. They sent me a kind reminder email.

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!!!

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.
