Friday Check In

Well, I've gotten a bunch done on my projects and thought it was time to share.

I've finished the next step in the mitts. I cut the patterns and sewed them and turned them so all I have to do is add the binding (which is cut and pressed!). Hopefully, they will be done very soon and I can check off that project!

I worked some more on burying the threads in my Stop Sign wall hanging. Need to cut the binding and sew it on and a sleeve to hang it and that will be done! Yippee.

Also, got the fabrics identified on my Baltimore Autumn applique quilt. I'm doing a BOM with an applique Yahoo group and we are on Block 2 - Horn of Plenty. Lovely batiks for the cornucopia and I purchased the kit/pattern from Amidon Quiltworks. It's a Pearl P. Pereira design. It's a beautiful project. I love Pearl's patterns and I'm also doing her Baltimore Christmas, Baltimore Halloween and Baltimore Liberty patterns.

I made a bunch of Step 4 of Easy Street - Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt that's not a mystery any longer. I just didn't have the time to do it along with everyone else. That makes it a back-burner project so I was using it as a leader/enders project, but today, I just sewed a bunch.

I've appliqued part of the heart on my Vintage Valentine BOM on Block 1 of the BOM. I'm on a two-month schedule for each block, but I just put it off until the eleventh hour.

I also worked, or should I say re-worked some of the sections of my Dear Jane block that I'd made a mess of the day before. Ugh, hate that, just, somehow cut them on the wrong angle. I do a BOW with another Yahoo group and my deadline is Sunday, so we'll see if I can finish that up by then. Really, I try to do two blocks a week, but I'm happy to get one finished. Pics soon.

Worked on organizing my Dino's quilt, shams and valances. Need to be sure I have enough fabric because that line may soon go away. This is the problem when you leave a project sit for a long time, takes awhile to remember where you left off.  I even planned a wall hanging, too!

Okay, you are all caught up on my projects, care to share what you've accomplished?

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.
