Here’s a shot at one corner where I’ve moved my Davis Treadle and have it displayed with a doll quilt from the mid 1800’s – yes---it’s hexies!
Refolding and reorganizing the stash cabinets is both a daunting and comforting task. I’m petting old friends! ((Something one should never say in mixed company unless you are surrounded by Quilters!)) And then wondering why I didn’t use them yet – how long have I had this fabric anyway?
The one thing I am doing a bit different this time around is pulling all the pieces that are big enough for backings and am going to put them in one place together, instead of separating them by color. I’ve sorted pieces that are 1/2 yard into smaller stacks.
Goodness, this is a lot of fabric!
Neutrals and Pinks are next to the FQ drawers.
Blues and Reds!
That’s it so far. I’ve got to run some errands this afternoon –including getting my hair trimmed, so I’ll be out and about for a bit and then back at it this afternoon.
For anyone asking – I bought these cabinets about 12 years ago when we were still living in Texas. They came from Home Depot –in a flat box. You have to assemble them yourself, or get your DH or son to do it :c) I don’t know if they still sell them, but I’ve loved them. I’m sure there is something else similar out there ----I know Ikea has great cabinets for storage that you can assemble fairly easily as well.
The one thing that I keep reminding myself is “It’s not good enough just to have space to store it – you need to USE IT!”
Oh, I’ll be making Happy Scrappy quilts for a good long time!
As far as QuiltCam goes – yes --- I think tonight will work! Look for me about 9pm Eastern!
