Dear Jane - Finished First Triangle

Hooray! Got a bit motivated to do a Dear Jane block and the TR-1 Spanish Moss was next!! Looking reasonably good, so I'm going to count it done!!!

EDIT: Yikes, forgot to change the print size--will have to redo this one!!!


  1. Love your fabric! So bright and cheery!

    Are you using the DJ software? When you printed the pattern did you click the "Use size from quilt" button?

    The triangle should measure 5" wide x 8" long.

  2. Well, shoot, I thought I did--I knew I was supposed to change it, but now I'm working on TR-2 and I clearly didn't do it on the TR-1...because my TR-2 is long and skinny. Darn, darn, darn...thanks for catching that; won't forget to check that every time right before I print one out from now on!!! Shoot!

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.
