Visiting sewing rooms

Our guild meeting tonight took us out on the road. We broke into groups and went to see 4 of our members sewing rooms. They all had different ways of storing their stashes, threads, books, projects and setups. It was fun to see their rooms. Makes me want to organize my workspace better!!!

I quilted 4 donation quilts today that I was able to give back to Denise tonight. She’ll get the bindings on them so they can be given away at our November meeting. 3 are Clifford and one is Peanuts.


Guess that’s it for now.


Design wall Monday 8/5/13

I don’t actually have anything on my wall today, but I am working on picking out fabric for a Row by row exchange we are doing at my guild. The theme is Summer so I’ve decided that Flip Flops will be what I make for my row. I made a small wall hanging several years ago using the flip flop pattern from this magazine.


For this exchange, I will need to make 6 sets of flip flops for each row. Here’s the fabrics I’ve picked out to use for them.


I’m not sure what to use for the background yet……..

Meanwhile, I’m also working on a Bonnie Hunter scrappy Bargello pattern. I really need to use up some of my scraps! They are taking over!! I used this pattern on a lap quilt several years ago but this time I’m making the big one. Hopefully it will get rid of a few scraps!!



Ok, that’s it for now, to see more design walls, check out
