Project Progress - Yippee!

I was able to get a bunch of projects moved forward today. I was able to sew quite a bit today (Saturday).

My February goals are:

1. Pot Holders/Mitts - I cut the fabric for them (TODAY), just have to quilt it and then cut them.
2. Dino's - Cut valances for two windows (TODAY). Each are two fabrics and one appliqued Dino per window. I will go back to the quilt next.
3. Dear Jane - Almost finished two blocks, should finish tomorrow, will post pics then.
4. Baltimore Autumn - I didn't finish Block 1, so I'll probably tackle it again in February.
5. Baltimore Christmas - Didn't finish Block 1, might continue or move on to Block 2. I think Block 1 is the hardest of all of them.
6. Baltimore Halloween - Block 2 here I come!!!
7. Baltimore Liberty - None much was done in January. :(
8. Vintage Valentine - About halfway on this one - Block 1.
9. Country Cottages - Little embroidery left, then will move to Block 2.
10. Nursery stuff - Started a pillow awhile ago, put a ruffle on it (TODAY).
11. Stop Sign - Need to tie off ends and bind. Quilting is done. Have to finish this in February.
12. Spot - Nothing done, so need to get on this one.
13. Black/White Quilt - It's a queen and I quilted some of it and my tension wasn't correct, so I need to rip out a bunch of blocks. My bad.

So, there you have my list for February that I'd love to make even a bit of headway on them.

I signed myself up for a bunch of online things because I felt like I was doing mostly applique, so I wanted to piece some projects. I really wanted to sew at the machine today, so I did!

1. Easy Street - I just trimmed a bunch of Step 3 blocks. The 15 minutes went fast.
2. Sunbonnet Sleuth - Did another eight blocks.
3. Skillbuilder - I cut a bunch of block borders so that I won't have to do it with each block.
4. Susan's Folly - made two blocks today (had two already done and have five more to go)
5. Craftsy BOM - Just had time to choose some fabrics.
6. Our Family is a Hoot - Downloaded the pattern.
7. Heart Bookmarks - Downloaded the pattern.
8. I Love Sewing - Sulky BOM

Here's some pics:

This is the pillow - she wanted primary colors and no ruffle on the pillow.

There's the Susan's Folly blocks. Two of each and very, very scrappy. I'd gotten some scraps from an acquaintance and I'm looking for ways to use them up. 

These are the Sunbonnet Sleuth blocks I did today. 

Here's the two Dear Jane blocks:

That's probably all I can show you for now, but I really did work quite a bit today. Leftovers for dinner so didn't have to do any real work there. 

I'm listing all my projects here so I can refer to them...maybe cross them out or update it when I move the project along. Not saying I'll work on all of these, but I don't want to lose sight of them. Guess I should prioritize them, but, a list is better than nothing. LOL 

What's on your list?

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.
