One More Step

I decided to do a step or two on several of my 2010-started quilts. So, today, I did another block on the 2010 Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along (way over for everyone else!).

I also worked on the 2010 On the Road to Spring quilt along. I'd sewn my strips and too many ended up together, so I took a few apart to stagger them better. Next I'll do some rows and be almost finished.

I put two "logs" on a FanFare Log Cabin a Christmas quilt from eons ago. There were 16 blocks and I have a couple more rounds to go then add borders.

  1. This is looking good...I really enjoyed the Jelly Roll Quilt Along. The blocks were easy and looked great. My little quilt is together, it just needs quilting. It is on my list of quilts to be quilted. I'll probably quilt this myself...

  2. Gosh, I AM really behind!!! Let me know when you've decided what quilting design you choose. That's always so hard for me.

    Thanks for stopping by.

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. 




It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…
