Welcome to Main Crush Monday everyone! We are in the last week of March – can you believe it? We only have 75% of 2018 left! LOL You know the saying “time flies when you’re having fun”? Well, I must be having a ton of fun because time sure is flying by!
I’m excited to tell you I have the card trick quilt top finished. Finally. I got a bit sidetracked by some other projects and had to put it on the back burner for a little while. But over the weekend I was able to work on it and finish it up.
I took the quilt outside to get some pictures, but the wind was so strong I couldn’t even hang it over a rail without it blowing off. So I had to use Freddie’s rails. He didn’t mind…
I have to get the backing for it and then I can start on the quilting. This one has been bumped to the top of my To Do list, and I hope to get it finished soon.
Last week, while snowed in at my sister’s house, I was able to work on another project I’m excited about. I can’t show it just yet, but I’m going to share a picture of the scraps. I think they are so pretty!
The fabrics are a fat quarter bundle of Brushline from Andover. As soon as I saw them online I knew I had to have them. To me, these rank right up there with Grunge. I love the way they look in the blocks I’m making. I can’t wait to show you more!
While I am piecing and quilting, I’m also working on organizing and decluttering my sewing room and house. I have a lot of ideas for reorganizing my sewing space, and worked on that some over the weekend. It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now, but I got a kick in the pants after my visit to sister’s house. Her sewing room is the most organized space I think I’ve ever seen – it’s amazing! Labeled bins and baskets hold her scraps, which are sorted by size and color, and yardage is in the closet. She is mostly a scrap quilter, and can make a quilt out of almost nothing. She never ceases to amaze me.
So when I got home I tackled the closet in my room. I removed everything that I don’t or won’t use which freed up space for the things I do use. I hung all my large pieces of fabric, and it’s so nice to actually see what I have. One thing I know for sure – I have way too much fabric!
This project is a long-term one and won’t be finished any time soon but I’m going to keep chipping away at it. Here’s one side of my closet now:
I’ll show you more pictures of my room as I make progress.
I guess this could be considered a spring cleaning type of project. Do you have any projects you are ready to tackle? What are your best sewing room organizational tips? I can use all the help I can get and I’d love to hear how you keep your supplies and projects organized.
These are my crushes for this week’s Main Crush Monday party, now it’s time for you to share yours. You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
