Prioritizing Projects in 2012

Once again, I'm going to try to get more done in 2012 than I did in 2011!!!

So, my start up list is (off the top of my head):


1. A sensory blanket for my granddaughter. Only seven more rows.  Deadline 1/6/2012
2. Spot. Ready to quilt. Deadline 1/6/2012
3. Isabelle Christmas. Designed by my daughter and the front is finished. Backing is squares that need to be piecing. Deadline 1/6/2012
4. Dinosaur Quilt. Ordering fabric.
5. Repair Doll Quilt. Hmmm. Deadline 1/6/2012
6. Alphabet Quilt
7. B/W King Quilt - Ripping in progress

For me:

1. Baltimore Christmas - BOM - Deadline 1/31/2012
2. Baltimore Halloween - BOM - 1/31/2012
3. Baltimore Liberty - BOM - 1/31/2012
4. Dear Jane - BOW and TOW - 1/8/2012
5. Vintage Valentine (Feb 2012) - BOM

Other gifts to sneak in when time permits:

1. Pinwheel for Pop
2. Mod Garden Pillowcases and Shams

I just wanted these on record and will be revising/adding to as demands change. I will post about each of these projects individually with photos as I progress.

Way overloaded, but love all the projects to choose from on any given day.

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.
