Catching Up on UFO's

Here's what I've been up to lately:

This is my crayon quilt. I just bought some yellow for the backing so I'm almost ready to quilt this. It's for my granddaughter and I'm hoping to get it quilted by next week. I can take it and add the binding during my visit.

Something for Valentine's Day. I bought the kit from Sew Lux, in fact, I bought two!!! Working on the second one as a Leader/Ender project. 

I'm a huge fan of Downton Abbey, so I bought some fabric and used one of Andover Fabrics' patterns. Just not in love with it, but...can you see the mistake?  I'm taking it apart as we speak. 

Not sure I shared, but I finally finished all those alphabet bean bags and did a couple bags for them. Here's one: happy that I'm finished and the kids are loving them. Seemed like a great idea and thought I could just throw them together, but, after a couple, I wanted to move onto a new project, so I did. LOL

This is my version of Quiltville's Grand Illusion mystery quilt. Still on Step 1...LOL

I have more projects and I'll post those tomorrow.  I re-arranged my sewing studio today, so I have to clean it up a bit and I'll shoot some updated pics. 

I still need so much help in using my time wisely and thereby, getting more quilts done. I'm going to be gone most of February so I need a hand work project to be ready to work on. Hmmmm.

I have quite a few tops that need to be quilted. Doing my borders on most of them and I'll share more soon. 


  1. Such cute projects! Love the one you made for your granddaughter and the Valentine one. Stopping by from the GYB hop. Hope you have a good week!

  2. Love your crayon quilt, such lovely colours. Maybe I should make something similar for the grankids - trouble is, if you make for one child you have to make for the other two.

  3. Stopping by from GYB, no I cannot see a mistake! Cute Valentine X O! Enjoyed seeing your quilts.

  4. Love love your crayon quilt!! So creative!!

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.
