This week I have been trying to set up a pleasant sewing studio down in that basement......
I've looked at "organized sewing rooms" on line and have slowly put some things in place...including getting the maple colored shoe cubby from Target for some fat quarters.
There is still a lot to sort and pitch but, I have to "play" along the way!
making blocks for this scrappy quilt! the first step is to cut lots of scrappy 1" X 22" strips (from fat quarters if you have them) and sew them into sets of 14. Press. Cut this "striped" piece into sections 2.5" wide. This will be the lattice, with red cornerstones, 2.5 X 2.5 inches. The log cabin blocks all have black centers. The reds and blacks are what gives rhythm and bounce to this quilt! Of course, the zippy stripped lattice doesn't hurt either!
