Bonnie's Web Cam

I really haven't done any scrappy quilts--yet!! I have always been leery of choosing fabrics so almost all of the quilts I decided to make are kits. That said, I'm really learning so many tips from Bonnie K Hunter's Cam Time. Bonnie is a scrap quilter and is very smart and entertaining!!! She just chats away as she works and stops to share all kinds of information. She stops periodically to answer emails and that's fabulous. Usually someone has asked the same exact question I had!! She may soon convince me that I'm not color challenged. <grin>

Bonnie has a leaders and enders scrap system that, when/if I ever get quilts completely done and am sure I won't need the leftover fabric, I plan to implement.

There's no hard and fast rule when she turns on her Web cam, so check back often.

I always seem to chat about my projects, but Bonnie said she likes to also read about what else we do. So I thought I'd share that I'm actively trying to lose weight and get more exercise. I've lost about 30 pounds in four months, so I hope it will stay off. I love the game of tennis and try to play twice a week and would play every day if only I had someone that I could play with every day. I run at least a mile a day, most times it's two miles or even a 5K which depends on my time and the weather.

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.
