Picture 1: Jelly Roll Quilt Top (so far)
Picture 2: Finished Balloons Quilt
Picture 3: Now how did that picture get in here?
I recorded on Tuesday but was having trouble uploading so it is now almost 3:00 am on Wednesday.
I am still working on the sewing room remodel so I haven’t finished any other projects.
The good news: I did get started on my jelly roll swap quilt. Bad news: my Bernina sounds like she is dying so I’m going to have to take her to the doctor; he will be at the shop on Friday. Good news: I have a couple of back-up machines.
Since I have nothing else for you, here’s a picture of Garrick seeing his 1st birthday cake.
No finishes this week. I’ve made some progress on a couple of projects but the majority of my time has been spent trying to organize my sewing room. What a chore that is!
I have pulled all of my fabric out of my large, 2-door cabinet, brought it all into the living room, folded, sorted by size and color and put back into the cabinet. Scraps smaller than fat quarter was pressed, sorted by color and put into plastic bins. Sorted 2 1/2″ strips by color and put in my rolling cart. Unopened jelly rolls are stored in the bottom drawer. Two drawers hold layer cakes and 2 wire baskets hold 5″squares.
I am in the process of cleaning out my small 1-drawer cabinet which has been holding embroidery supplies including blanks, felt squares and vinyl. All of my UFOs, flimsies and completed quilts and projects have been hiding in the closet. In my world, if I don’t see it, it doesn’t exist. So those projects can sit in the closet for years without being completed. They will move into the cabinet where they will be easier to find. My serger also lives in that cabinet.
All of the embroidery and other crafting supplies will take residence in the closet along with pillow forms and some holiday stuff.
All that being said, I am so sore!!! But I have found some quilt tops that are making their way to Jewels and should get to her on Friday. I have a small stack of orphan blocks that may find their way to either Jewels or Jennifer O if I decide I don’t want to work with them.
I’m also moving my embroidery machine and threads to the desk that currently serves as cutting/ironing table. Along with it, my new Cricut will sit there. (Tim let me spend our tax refund!) When they are moved, my cutting/ironing station will move in their place. That should be more convenient since it is right behind my sewing table.
Hopefully I’ll have some stuff to show you next week.
Actually it is 2 finishes in 1. The back is a UFO from 10+ years ago that I never got around to finishing. So this quilt is reversible. Win-Win.
Pictures in the video are 1) front, 2) back, 3) my favorite quilt assistant peeking over to say hi.
Not much done this week, but just couldn’t miss posting 2 weeks.
Where I show you my nephew’s quilt! I love it so much thanks to the Jennifers! I love the quilting pattern Jennifer R used.
I want to apologize for the quality of this video. I didn’t think to pause it while walking to do the close ups so you get a good look at dead grass. And I could not for the life of me remember the word label! That’s all I have left to do. I’m meeting Mike and Lolita for breakfast tomorrow and will gift them the quilt then.
