Local Guild Quilt Show

Sorry, I've been amiss lately, just been so busy doing nothing. LOL Well, not really, I've been watching as many free shows at The Quilt Show because they are free this weekend in celebration of National Quilting Day yesterday.

Went to a local quilt show sponsored by the local guild which I'm going to try to attend a meeting this week and see what's going on there.  I purchased a couple of raffle tickets in hopes of winning a quilt or two and to support them.

I won some silent auctions while there. Very excited because I got one of those Hang It Dang It quilt hangers. I also got a Christmas quilt kit with fabric. I got a pack of fat quarters with a book to use them. I got a ton of 7" square blocks of fabric that were just bagged from what I suppose was someone stash, but since I don't seem to have a ton of variety, I plopped my name down and won it!!

Here's my winnings:

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.
