I went to the Ohio One Stop Shop Hop and got some goodies!!  I fell in love with the snowmen and just had to have the kit from Cozy Cabin Quilts. Then I fell in love with these month kits from The Country Cupboard, but decided they were too expensive and just bought the book to use my own fabrics and also bought a Christmas book and a wire frame. Then, I found a cute boy quilt kit, called "On the Go" and just had to have it--from Quilts n Gifts.  There were several ladies leaving and they handed me their door prize tickets and I won a door prize!!! It was some brownish flannel fabric and four fat quarters of "What's Cookin" from Quilting Treasures, not sure who's ticket won, but thanks to you wonderful ladies that shared them with me. Now, to dream up something to use these cute fabrics in!

This is the first time I've ever done an "all under one roof" but I loved it. Not too much from any one shop to look at and be overwhelmed by, but just a touch of what they seemed to love. There were several shops that I just kept moving and their fabrics just weren't something that I could see myself using.

Oh, my, I've now found a Baltimore Christmas quilt kit online that I want to buy! Not that I need a new project, but I think it's so beautiful and I've been drooling for some time. Someone talk me out of it--some pieces are very small and I've decided I love needleturn applique!


  1. Looks like you had a great day! I am looking forward to the Indiana one stop shop hop at the end of this month. I have been to several of the shops you mentioned, so I don't think we are very far apart. Enjoy your goodies!

  2. Laura,
    Which IN one? I'd love to attend, is there a Web site for the hop?

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.
