Another day, another scrap quilt

Two sort-of finishes this week, and they couldn’t be more different. The first is this crazy, scrappy Irish Chain:

I started the blocks at retreat in January, but I was late ordering the red for the alternating blocks and didn’t have it with me. I tried, and failed, to make it work with a teal dot. Kona Lipstick was the only thing that would do. I’m so happy with how it came out.

Last Friday I picked up a beautiful Robert Kaufman flannel from Island Quilter for the back (among other things), and I have a plan for the quilting (new pattern boards make me happy!)

Even so, it’ll have to wait a little longer to be really finished. There’s a major pile ahead of it.

One less in the pile today, though. Tumbler is quilted and off the frame.

Still having a debate about whether to square the edges or just do a single binding and leave blocks intact. A little more work, but a lot more fun. So I guess there’s really no debate at all…….

The other thing happening in the studio the past couple weeks is a MAJOR reorganization of the sewing room. I’m not ready for the great unveiling yet, but how about a little sneak peek?

All my fabric is in one place. ALL MY FABRIC IS IN ONE PLACE! I could die of happiness now.

I’m such a organization geek.

  4. Wonderful! If my fabric was in the same room I might not get anything done. Of course, that is what is happening now…
