Happy New Year!

I finished sewing the binding for Isabelle Christmas and then sewed it to the quilt. I haven't sewn the ends together yet, but will do that tomorrow.

I started on the Flower Garden from the Craftsy Web site that is a workshop. I like the video lessons better.  I've never done anything with Kaffe's fabrics, so I just bought the kit. The patterns are a bit busy for my taste, but I wanted to try something new.

I really need to quilt the Dino's quilt...still trying to decide how to quilt it. I played with free motion on my Viking, but I need way too much practice time first.

I didn't do so well with my 2013 plan to get quilts done, so I'm going to see what's out there for motivation and maybe I'll try not to be as aggressive and overwhelmed this year.  Any ideas of how you are going to manage your projects?  Any Web sites that I can "finish" with?

Happy New Year! I do plan to quilt every day, even if for only 15 minutes and I plan to journal/blog better about my progress. I know I have well over 100 UFOs and I've organized them in bins and took over three closets - will take photos if you want to see my mess. I really need an app for that!!!  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.
