Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Finding my Sanity

I haven’t quilted since shortly after making the decision to move in April.  Looking back through my posts, it appears I attempted to work on a top in April, and in early May I put together some “frankenbatts”.  Since then I’ve been packing, unpacking, and looking for contractors.

This past Monday, I did go to a Guild meeting.  Quilters By Hearts’ Desire is an evening guild which meets the 3rd Monday in Brandon, MS.  It’s an easy 15 minute drive for me.  I enjoyed the meeting and believe I’ll be joining this Guild.  There is another evening guild the 1st Monday of the month which I will visit in a couple of weeks.

So, to my sanity.  When the movers unloaded the truck anything related to sewing got shoved into the front bedroom. Or more accurately, if it wasn’t clearly kitchen, dining room, Christmas, books or music, or ‘garage’ it got shoved into the front bedroom.  As it turns out there are “basement” things in the front room – although much of “basement” is fabric related.  Anyway, the Mississippi Quilt Association’s Fall Gathering is coming up October 1st & 2nd.  During the event there will be show and tell for the BOM we’ve been working on. All my blocks are done. All they need is a bit of sashing and a border.  Hum…I could get that done.  Ha!  Step one locate the blocks.

So, because it’s been so long since I’ve played in my fabric, I put together the fabric shelves and started loading them.  They are currently in my living room – not where they will end up.   I have more small totes than shelf space so I’m ruminating on ideas, but that will have to wait.

I finally found my blocks. Originally I over looked them because I thought I was looking in an office box, not a sewing room box.

So, this evening I went to the local quilt shop The Cotton Blossom.  I picked out the turquoise fabric for the border and opted for white as the sashings.

 

Now the only question is will I get the top done.  I’ll need to find a spot to sew in. For now that’s going to be the corner of my den.
