GO! For Christmas!!!

I got a GO! Accuquilt fabric cutter for Christmas and it's still sitting unused except for a few 2 1/2" strips. I'm scared to cut fabric because it seems easier to just follow the quilt pattern for cutting. I'll have to figure out which die to use to get the desired cut.

I'm going to force myself to figure it out and use this marvelous gift!!!

I've added a tab for the upcoming 2011 quilts that I'm sure I'll be buying.

I need to look again at all my quilts and see where I stand. I thought about making BOMs/BOWs of all of them, too much pressure?  I wonder if I'd get so confused if I did a block a day for a month with a different quilt each day. Something to think about, no???


  1. I got a go a while back and haven't played with it yet because of tryint ot finish Christmas presents. I do have a project due in Jan too than it's taming that scrap bin. I got the apple core die and would love to just make a scrappy quilt with the bin fabrics....I'm a little concerned with fabric grain with cutting this shape...

  2. I watched a few videos on that, but I haven't found them again after I got my GO!. When I find them again, I'll post it.

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.
