2013 NewFO Challenge

Today is the last day you can post a comment for the giveaway  for the  "Grow Your Blog" party, so please click through to this post and say "Hi!"  I will announce the winner tomorrow

I am linking up the the 2013 NewFo Challenge from Cat Patches! So, here's what's been going on with me in January. 

Started and finished the top for the Sweetheart Mystery. 

Started and finished a wall hanging for the "Project Quilting" at Persimon Dreams, which I'm probably not going to do again.  I have too much on my plate to stop and do something start-finish in one month. :(

Finished Baltimore Halloween, all but the eyes, spider eyes and legs and the owl's feet. 

Sewed some Dear Jane blocks. 

Did three steps of Easy Street (at least some of the three steps). 

Finished my pot holder and mitt. I have three more sets to do. 

Finished the stop sign wall hanging, well, I need to tie off my threads and do the binding, but it's close. 

Started and finished a wall hanging for the Project Quilting, which I'm probably not going to do again.  I have too much on my plate to stop and do something start-finish in one month. :(

I finished four aprons for my grandchildren. 

I started and finished the Merry Mayhem's Mystery quilt. Well, it's a top, at least. <grin> Looks a bit wavy, but it's not really. 

Thanks for stopping by. More soon.


  1. Wow Gloria! You have been very busy. All these projects are beautiful!

    1. I'm really kind of a newbie, but I'm getting so much better.
      Thanks for visiting.

  2. These are all just wonderful. Busy lady!

    1. I'm trying very hard to keep from spinning my wheels and not getting any of my projects finished. Trying anything to keep motivated.

  3. Nice looking blocks! You've been one really busy lady!

    1. I didn't have anything else to do this January!! Don't think it will happen every month. LOL

  4. You've really accomplished a lot! Great start to the new year.

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.
