Some Progress Today

I didn't do anything with my Dino's quilt today because I've ordered some long-arm rulers to do scallops in their bodies. Ordered several others to help me get the hang of this machine that I've had for years and haven't really done anything but computerized designs. I want get better so I need to practice and I've found I like using the rulers. So, I haven't to wait a week to get them. 

I put a list of what I'm working on in the outer column so that I can try to focus. The first four are "MUST-DO's." If I do anything to move them forward, I'll post here. 

I did do a bit of applique. This is "Chick Jubilee" from Bunny Hills Design. It was a BOM and I hadn't touched Block 1 yet. Dug that out to get it going and grab it when the mood strikes me. It's not a priority, but it's fun to work on.

Here's my Dear Jane blocks. They were taking up space on one of my design walls, so I collected them and clipped them together by rows. I have some triangles done, as well. I got this out to figure how where I left off and to motivate me a little. 

This is a quilt that I found in a magazine, it's called Pinwheels for Pop and thought it was manly so I'm making it for my husband. Plus, if I get it done, I might not feel too guilty when I order a Silhouette Cameo for my freezer paper applique patterns. Then, I'll have to come up with another quilt for him when I order a new HQ Fusion!!! HaHa That would be in my dreams, of course. Not sure why I didn't sew all the blocks, but...

I've gotten these UFOs out and "in my face" and so I have to trip over them, hopefully, I'll make a bit of progress on my very ambitious list. 

I did a little cleaning, not much, but a little. I'd take a bunch of stuff out of my studio so I could re-arrange and straighten up for the photos I shared last week. We took down the outdoor lights today because it was nice enough to be outside for a little bit. Tomorrow, I hope to get the other UFOs out and refresh my memory of where I left off. Wish me luck.

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.
