Projects - Updates

I'm really enjoying visiting all the blogs from the "Grow Your Blog" party and if you've stopped by to enter the giveaway, please click through to this post

Thought I would update my January 13 projects (way too ambitious, will need to adjust that soon. LOL

Part of a quilt journal is posting regularly about the projects as motivation to complete, right? 

1. Tooth Fairy Pillow - Finished. 
2. Apron Ties - Finished.
3. Easy Street - Steps 1 & 2 have almost 40 of each, Step 3 has a bunch half sewn. 

4. Dear Jane - two more blocks finished,  A-7 and C-6 this week. Take note, they aren't trimmed yet. LOL I've chosen two more for this week, so I should have eight total for the month. 

5. Stop Sign - SID in the horizontal seams, just have to outline the letters...need to practice that some more. Ripped a bunch out already. LOL

6. Spot - Not even touched. Not my favorite job, ripping out stitches, so ignoring it. LOL

7.  Baltimore Autumn - Did some prep...

8.  Baltimore Christmas - Did some legs on the angels...

9.  Baltimore Halloween - Coming along, should be finished in January sometime. Pic to first appliqued block so it's pretty rough. Getting better at it. 

10.  Baltimore Liberty - Did some prep...not much 

11. Country Cottages (not houses) - Did the house, awning, chimney...

12.  Vintage Valentine - Did a bird...

13.  Dino's - Worked a ton on this, have six finished, six to go. 

So, I replaced the aprons with pot holders/mitts and need to finish that to ship off with the Stop Sign, so have to get these done this week. 

I've joined a bunch of online projects, they will be in another post soon. 

I really think I have all this time, but it turns out that if I don't set my timer, I get so distracted no matter how much I want to be working...the time I sit on this computer is killing me!!! 

I really think I should do a Quilt Cam like Bonnie's so I'll work if I know you are watching!! LOL

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.
