Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s Next

After a busy week in the sewing room I splurged and purchased a yard each of the Muppets and Kermit. I have no idea what I’m going to do with either print.

I briefly pulled my MQA BOM Blocks out, thinking it would be another quick finish.  Ha! The multi-colored stripe on the left was my color inspiration.  I’ve used it a couple of times, with plans for it to be the border, but in the end have gone with something else.  So I dug deep into my yardage stash looking for possible options.  I think I’m going with #5 — keep looking.

Since I was digging through the yardage, I pulled it all out and sorted it.  Stripes, floral, tone on tone (2 boxes!), paisley/leaf, cat/novelty, neutral/batik, everything else.  I’m not sure I’m going to like this, but what I had wasn’t really working.  I slid note cards both the yardage boxes and the “FQ” boxes so I know where to begin looking.  The “FQ” boxes are roughly sorted by color.   Neutral/Tan, Pink/Red, Orange/Yellow/Green, Green/Indigo/Blue, Blue/Violet,  Brown/Grey/Black, Halloween/Cat/Multi, 30’s, KTQ.  My Christmas box has both yardage and “FQ”.  There are also 2 boxes of vintage, a box of flannel, and a box of denim.  The final box is kits. The larger bits of music fabric are stored in the former thread drawers.

Up top there is a box of UFO, Misc Sewing Stuff, upholstery samples, ties (washed), and batting scraps.  Not show below the shelf are smaller batting scraps, clothes to be deconstructed and …

A box of “fabric” vs. “scraps”.  There’s the music yardage I was looking for to use on the back of the crazy quilt. It’s just as well. I think the other music fabric worked better with the black and red on the front of the quilt.

Also in this box are the red and white FQ I collected for the Winter Wonderland quilt I’m working on, some Halloween fabric, a couple pieces of yardage and a few bits and pieces.  Clearly I need to sew faster.

With all of the fabric shuffling around my sewing room is looking halfway decent.

I’ve even exposed more of the design wall.  That’s not to say there is still not more to do, but the room is in pretty good shape.  I have a pile of batting scraps I want to deal with, then I need to spend some time in the rest of the house.

  1. WOW! It seems more spacious and I bet you are breathing easier with the cleanup.
