Dino's Done

Well, the quilting is, now I have to fix my spike and fix a pucker, but I'll do that on Ruby Deluxe. It was actually too thick for the HQ16 to handle. I may go ahead and trim it so it's easier to handle.

Here it is on a king-sized bed, but it's a double. Still need to add buttons and some hand embroidery. This was a time intensive quilt. I learned a lot of about long-arm quilting and I wish I could do it over because I would have made a plan for the quilting so there wouldn't be as much over stitching as I ended up doing. Can't see it from 10' away so I'm dealing with it.

I'm going to make a ton of bean bags so the kids can practice their letters. Next project, after and in between, the valances, shams and wall hanging Dino's. 

I did a very bad thing, I stopped into a shop which is now an HQ rep and was shopping for the Fusion and I stopped this for my studio. I'm going red, white and black, so, hopefully, it will blend in nicely. Someday, of course, it will be a UFO...say NO!!!!!

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.
