Happy New Year!

This is my latest "want to do" series. It's a series of bench pillows by Kimberbell Designs. This is the Thanksgiving/November pattern that I started before Thanksgiving and have decided that I need to put this as a leader/ender project until the top is pieced enough to do the machine applique. I cut all the applique pieces with my Scan and Cut so they are very precise, fusible pieces and are ready to be ironed on, except the word Together, which I just couldn't find the right colors/fabric so it just sat. Sign. It has a braided top and bottom border which was fun to put together, so it's pretty close to to speak. It's already January and I missed the December/Christmas one altogether, so I will forgive myself and move on, but will keep it handy to use instead of a scrap piece of fabric. Now, do I do January or February next?  Thoughts?  

I didn't really sew today, but I fixed my wifi extender so that I could use my laptop in my bedroom again. Does thinking about sewing count?

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.
