Plugging Along

I quilted my Valentine wall hanging and all I have is the binding left. I fired up my HQ16 and totally forgot how to use it!!!  So, this project took a bit longer than I'd hoped. I wish I'd turned some of the fabrics around, but I did think to put February 14 in the middle!!! Candy hearts are on the back. I did not get these fabrics at a LQS -- bought them before I became a fabric snob.

Also, finished my owl tooth fairy pillow and put it in the mail...darn, no pic first. 

I also did one row on A Modern Twist...not much, but it's moved forward in its completion. 

I did a Dear Jane block, A-6 Uncle Homer. It was pretty easy and only took a little over a half hour, but I had to rip out two seams and should have gone more quickly. 

In between seams, I did half a dozen flying geese for Easy Street. I think I may have to give it it's own 15 minutes because I have a ton to make. LOL

Still haven't decided about my sewing machine, words of wisdom?

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.
