My Goals for the Year 2014

Got a little sewing in today, finished attaching the binding and thought I'd share. My daughter designed this using the fabric line Isabelle Christmas - her daughter is Isabelle!! Fancy that!! Look at the back, she designed that, too!  They are all the letter "I" as we pulled together enough squares to complete the back. Lots of seams. I quilted in a Christmas theme, but I think be a bit on the dense side. Just the binding left!!! Love it.

Here's some squares that I did today using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Very busy for me, but I'm hoping to get scraps from it!! It's called Flower Garden.

On to 2014...

Well, I've been trolling for motivation and will try again to finish SOMETHING in 2014.  I really need a buddy that can nag me - daily. LOL  Anyone up for the challenge?  Someone to tell me to "Just Do It!" and to stop playing on my iPad, I'm addicted to a silly game these days. I've even resorted to cleaning up my studio in an effort to procrastinate. Remember, I'm a process person, not a product person, so it's okay for all these projects to just sit and languish. How do I become a product person?

I did A Lovely Year of Finishes for 2013, but only did it once.  I am joining the 2014 Edition and have added their button to my sidebar. Hopefully, I'll do it more than once in 2014.

Also doing the NewFO Challenge for 2014, again, tried it in 2013 and lost focus. I keep trying. LOL

Any other motivating Web sites that you can suggest?

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.
