Pinwheels for Pop

Okay, I know I wouldn't start another new project, but I just couldn't help myself. I saw this quilt in Quick Quilts magazine and I loved the colors--something I decided would suit my husband. I bit the bullet and ordered the kit and the backing from the Fat Quarter Shop. I can't wait to do all those pinwheels--not. So, I bought the die for the Accuquilt GO! that was needed and I made one (then three). The first was a bit wonky, so I have decided to use a sheet of paper before each cut and cut only one block at a time. I'm loving not having to cut the dog ears or square them up. Cutting this quilt will be a breeze, but I'm worried a bit about cutting the sashing and trying very hard to keep those stripes straight. We'll see. 

Anyway, I'm thrilled to have a manly-ish quilt to work with and the red plaid backing will seal the deal. My husband's birthday is Sunday, but that's not going to happen and Father's Day is coming up, but it won't happen for that either.  I promised myself that I wouldn't put it away for next year, so our anniversary is in July??? Perhaps, but no promises. Shhh, don't tell him. 


  1. Do you have this pattern???? I bought the kit but to get the pattern in an old magazine is too pricey. Please help

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.
