15 Minutes to Done!!!

I spent some time looking for online projects to I need things to add to my list, right? Also, I was trolling for "Get Things Done" motivation.

Look what I found:

2013 NewFO Challenge from Barbara of Cat Patches.  Here's what you get to do, you get to start a new project every single month...12 new ones!! The catch is that you don't have to finish them!!!  Join me? Put her button on your side bar. Think about it, 12 new projects!!!

Project Quilting from Kim at Persimon Dreams. Ouch!!! This one is a weekly project and you MUST get it done!! I'm so crazy, but it's a great reality type challenge. Any suggestions for a square in a square pattern that's quick and easy?

I found this class with Laura Nownes on Craftsy and it's free!!! It's another Block of the Month...with videos!!

Another Block of the Month from Pile O'Fabric. It's a skill builder and who doesn't want to improve your skills.

2013 - A Lovely Year of Finishes hosted by Melissa and Shanna. I need to blog about it today.

I'm getting a bit into more modern quilts and so I've decided to add one more quilt to my list. It's a mystery called Sunbonnet Sleuth Mystery #5. Has a nice ring to it, yes?

Finish-A-Long for 2013 with Leanne, perhaps this will be better because it's quarterly? We shall see.

There's a couple more I might try and will add later. For now, I've added these to my side bar, but it's getting full of free stuff to do!!

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.
