Project Updates

Well, I think this 15 minutes is working out, but might be a harder to maintain as time marches on. The desire to actually finish something in one day might win out.

I finished appliqueing a bird on Vintage Valentine.
I cut out the tooth fairy pillow pieces.
Made some more four-patches for Easy Street.
Found my Dear Jane software and installed on my new laptop so I can print out a block to keep this huge project moving along.
Sewed one more tie onto an apron. Four ties on two more aprons to go.
I labeled all the fabrics for Baltimore Liberty and Baltimore Autumn and copied the pattern.
I decided that for Baltimore Halloween and Baltimore Christmas that I'd go back and finish up block 1 so I'm putting the center block on hold until all blocks are finished.
I put together the rows on "A Modern Twist" quilt.
Started appliqueing the awning on the house on the Country Houses BOM.
Appliqued two threads on the Dino block above. Need to move my design wall or paint the room white.

I've divided my sewing studio into sections and cleaned one section for 15 minutes.

Cheated on my diet and had a meatball sub for dinner!!!


  1. I'm beginning to applique too, and love it. I wish it would be a bit quicker, but that isn't the point. LOL
    I know you will accomplish lots this year. We both need to do the 15 minutes, no matter what.

  2. I hope you are right that I accomplish lots as I have lots started!

    Love applique!!

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.
