IDEAS > TIME! A little of my math geekiness comes out sometimes.
I finished this quilt top over the weekend. It is a very interesting pattern with lots of possibilities. It was fun although I generally like being more liberated and free form. I enjoy using a pattern but it is so much fun just to start and see where you go.
I see all these folks organizing their fabrics and I just had to join in. It seems most folks organize by color but what other ways do you use to organize your fabric.
I would really like to combine all these fabrics into one area but I don't see that happening right away. This pie safe has some of the first fabrics that I started with 5 years ago. I really enjoy going back through my stash and remembering what I did with each piece.
I saw someone who made some I Spy placemats and I cannot remember who or find the post. I LOVE making Tonyas letters. If you have not tried it please do. Pick up a copy of her Word Play Quilts if you don't already have one. I need to work on my W. Making letters/words is addictive. These placemats are for my house. I would really like to make them some more and make the letters smaller. There is a lot you could do with this idea.
The back is a fun fabric my daughter in law gave me a couple of years ago.
I am really getting into this placemat thing. I have some houses I made a few years ago and I have never done anything with them. I am wondering how they would work in placemats. I also want to explore negative space. I also have a quilt to make for a co-worker of my daughter in law.
See what I mean, more ideas than time!
I talked to my aunt the other day and when she has a few spare minutes she is cutting squares out of her scraps. I really need to do that but I am wondering how other folks store their squares, boxes, bags, what? Also, what sizes do you cut or do you cut various sizes.
