I have all my projects in little cubbies in the sewing room. With so many, 18 to be exact, it can be hard to find the one item I am looking for,

So the other day I made labels using cardstock and painters tape to attach the labels. Now I know where pretty much everything is. Some cubbies have all my buttons, some have UFO's, one has finished tops just waiting to be quilted. Two are for a class I help teach at church. One has all my wool and another my felt.

Labeling the cubbies is going to help so much and save me time and frustration. SO NICE!!!!

How do you keep your quilt/sewing room organized??

AND, I pulled out a little quilt that still needs a lot of micro quilting, so maybe I can get this one done this summer!!!

Hapy Quilting!!! and re-organizingπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

The Forever Quilt


This pattern is called Bento Box and it's my granddaughters quilt that she started many years ago. She ended up moving, then she joined the army, got married, had a baby, moved to Texas.


So I am going to finish machine quilting it. Just using the walking foot and stitching in the ditch. She could do it as I gave her a sewing machine to take to Texas with her. However, we never discussed how to make the binding. 
So I will finish the quilt including the binding, and someday we can hopefully get together so I can teach her how to finish a quilt. Maybe work on a small wallhanging together.

I use a craft table when I'm quilting larger quilts so the weight doesn't pull the quilt off the table while I'm trying to sew.

So much better!!!!

Here is the quilt pattern. It's really sweet and simple and beautiful.

So that is the agenda for awhile, get this quilt finished and mail it to Texas!!!

Take care
Happy Quilting

Binding is on and now, this quilt is truly finished!!!

I love the royal blue binding. It's bright and really helps contain the quilt

I decided to do a 1/2" binding to allow it to show up as this is a very bright quilt!!!

The backing is also very bright, something I had on hand so didn't have to purchase anything for this little quilt wallhanging.

Nice to have another one off the to do list!!!

I made this from leftover from another large quilt!! I love the brightness. I auditioned several fabrics for the binding and came up with this blue one below.

I sewed it on using my walking foot and it is now ready for some hand-sewing!!!

Have a fabulous week and happy quilting!!!

Charade quilt progress


I am working on my blocks for the Charade quilt along. These are the dark blocks. Very bright!!! And below are the medium blocks.

The light blocks are layed out and ready to sew together. Hopefully I will get them done this week and I can then start putting the quilt together. I still have no idea what it is going to look like.
I will share those blocks with you when they are done being sewn together.

This is really a surprise quilt for me, I usually can see the finished quilt in my mind, not this one!!!

Take care and thanks for looking

Charade Quilt Along

Charade Quilt Along is in progress. You can find it in the link!!! This is the quilt, it is so beautiful. I am doing different colors but still debating on them!!! Which is not good as we are in the sewing week, so I need to get my mind made up pronto!!!

So right now I am debating between the choices below. I took the yellow and green out as I did not want to make a rainbow quilt. 

Then I took the gray and black out.

Now the debate is leave the browns in or out????

I think I am overthinking!!!


I have another fabric stack stacked up ready to cut in greens and yellows and wondering if I should switch?
Anyway, hopefully today I can decide and get to the sewing!!!

Have a lovely day and thanks for the visit.
I welcome all comments on the decisions to be made!!!
