Catching Up - Again

I must apologize for my lack of blogging, however, I have a great excuse! I've been visiting my daughter and her family and helping out with her kids. She has four under six years old and they keep her soooooo busy. 

We had a great time making this little playhouse for her kids' preschool. There's some wrinkles in it, but I "let them go" for the sake of finishing it. Thoughts for improvement? 

My hope is that it's still standing!!!!

I will update you on all the quilts I've started, ones I want to start, ones I'm close to finishing, etc., when I get myself organized. 

Unfortunately, I'm hooked on the game, SimCity BuildIt, and quilting has taken a back seat to this game, if you can believe it. If anyone else is playing and wants to trade/bargain for goods, email me and we can be friends and swap extras.  As soon as the honeymoon with this game is over and I get bored with it, I'll be back...and finish something quilty!! 

<blush> Shhh...I'm a closet SimCity BuildIt player.

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.
