shhh, it's a secret...

Last weekend I spent digging out the fabric room. It took both days and some of the cleared out stuff is living in the hallway, waiting to find a new place. I was hoping to clean the sewing room next, but that is not going to happen for a while. I have my favorite quilting machine in the cabinet, so I set up my Bernina on the kitchen table as I needed to sew up a baby quilt top last night. That's the secret part, the mom-to-be reads my blog and I am not going to show this until after the shower. As soon as I finish my coffee, I will sandwich said top and get it ready to quilt. The inspiration for this quilt was the flannel backing piece I had-only 34 inches worth! as that was the end of the bolt. I finally looked at the date and realized I was running rapidly out of time so in the midst of cleaning I came across the perfect focus fabric on the novelty shelf and pulled some go-withs. I can't wait to quilt this up and send it on it's way. As always I am reminded of the awesome stash I have and the need to use up more of it!
It's guild night tonight and I am handing over a queen sized top etc to the longarm gal. I have binding to stitch together on the Bernina before putting it away-the right color thread is in it, and the ironing board is set up for pressing. That binding is for another quilt that came back quilted and I will share once it's bound. Well, time to get some quilty stuff done before preparing for the work day!

Busy, busy! Are you doing before and after pics after the fabric/sewing room reorganization?

Good for you having everything you needed to put a quilt together quickly for your friend. That is one way that having a stash is a time saver.
