More SID

I was able to do a bunch of SID in the blocks on the Dino's quilt. I should finish tomorrow. Lots of thread show on my SID blocks, but it's a quilt for a kid and I go way to fast and look away way too much. I'm getting lots of practice. Just need to hold the ruler in the right place and slow down. Not re-doing any SID. As usual, my tension wasn't the best and I had to fight with it. I'm thinking I need to look at my tension on the bobbin winder. Still haven't decided what to do with the actual dinosaur blocks or the borders around the letters. 

I really need to decide my goals for the year. I'm trying to be sure I get some quilting done every day, so, in theory, I should get something finished, right?  Been surfing all the quilting blogs looking for inspiration and daily motivation. Any thoughts on that? 

I bought the Baltimore Liberty kit and opened it today, not that I need to start anything new, but I checked the fabrics on Block One and I'm going to work on this when time allows. Block One is the wreath that's the second one down in the first row and has a flag with a bow. I don't seem to have enough reds, so I might look through more blocks since they seem to be repeated in other blocks. 

No cleaning today, so no photos to share. :(

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.
