Well another year behind us, I have to say 2016 was not a good sewing year for me. 
I am hoping to do much better this new year.

What's going on in YOUR sewing room ?

Doing a couple of blocks for my quilting guild’s Jelly Roll Quilt Along. We are following "Moose on the Porch” 2010 quilt along. We are doing one block a month - for 12 months. I'm doing 2 colorways; blue and brown/tans. I'll take a picture when I finish the first assignment.

I started 2017 by pulling out all of my projects out of the closet and putting them in project bins.  I then decided on one project to begin the Year with and the Austen Family Quilt, 2014 won out.  I had all 36 quilt blocks completed and I just needed to plan out the quilt top.  I added sashing and corner stones and put all the rows together only to realize it was a bit small for my bed.  I decided it needed another row at the bottom, 6 more blocks and a few more sashings, and a nice 4" border to make it a nice quilt top.  

I purchased the border fabric today and it is in the washer.  I have backing purchased and have it ready to piece and take with the quilt top to my fabulous quilter.  I will have this one done for me since it is 100 x 100 and more than I want to tackle.

   Happy New Year

My sewing/quilting room is a combination of my living/dining room since I now live in a one bedroom apartment.  Or another way to phrase it is I live in a quilting studio. 

I have been storing fabric everywhere in the apartment (including the kitchen pantry), so I decided it was time to organize.  I'm far from finished, but have several shelves filled with fabric with curtain in front, and 6 totes under the Bailey frame with a curtain hooked onto the rails to hide the totes.  I'm taking the time to ruler fold, so the going is slow.

In addition to that, I've finished three quilt tops started years ago, working on the Bonnie Hunter En Provence, and this evening cut out a turning twenty quilt. I'm going to pull out the Bailey frame in a week or so and attempt to quilt at least 6 quilts before I push it back against the wall. 

I may have told you more than you wanted to know. Embarassed

Have been decluttering my sewing room so I can find my projects.  Making plies to put on the trading post.

I still haven't found my chile rag quilt I started a year and a half ago. I fear I put it in a garbage bag by mistake and threw it away. I have gone through everything in two rooms and 4 closets and every box in my sewing closet, so I think it's gone.

Looking forward to finishing some things.  Like I need something else to do my cousin is sending me a quilt to finish for her.

LOL   but I am willing to do it.

T'm I will be packing up my sewing studio as we are moving this is the final room to pack I am not looking forward to it one little bit.
I will miss this room the most in this home but I will be setting up the third bed room in the new apartment as a sewing room sorry but visitors will have to go on a sofa or blow up bed or close motel just a walk away.
Getting my,priorities right for a change, not like our previous home kept spare room for guests and it was hardly used and I would put up with stitching on the dinning room table and pack it away all the time not anymore lol.

Hello all....after doing a much-needed cleanup of the ol' sewing room, I've started a HST quilt from a bunch of the gorgeous Stonehenge fabrics my hubby got me in greens, golds, and browns.  Had to quickly get it off the design floor due to my new kitty - Gasper.

I've managed to quilt 2 quilts so far this month and have a third one mounted on the frame, just waiting for my thread order to arrive, it's being held up by the snow/ice storms in the Midwest and yesterday's holiday, so didn't actually get shipped out until today.

In the meantime, I've been trying to straighten out the quilting/fabric storage room again as it always seems to fall in disarray during the holidays since I tend to hide/move everything in that room when we put up the Christmas stuff.  While straightening/decluttering this room, I actually found a couple more quilt tops to add to my list, but I still haven't found #4 which is this month's UFO challenge.  Oh well.

LOL  Storing fabric makes me think of a friend who used to wrap her fabric in parchment/brown paper and hide it in the freezer. 

Most of mine is in a small shed outside - in plastic totes.  It's time to go through them again and pick out the smaller pieces for HST and charity blocks/quilts.

Today I hope to quilt the F-150 quilt that's been patiently waiting loaded on Gracie.

A little sweetheart asked if she could take my stuff of the design wall to put her project up. She works away at it on her own, picking 2" squares from my scrap box and asking me from time to time to cut her a new stack of white squares. Wow, she has made a bunch and I'm impressedby her skill for someone who just turned 10. She's making this quilt.

How very funny: fabric wrapped in paper in the freezer. Obviously DH doesn't cook. He'd notice the weight was off.

I LOVE that 9-patch quilt. I have gobs of 9-patches and would love that quilt. The center applique is amazing and the color in rainbow spread are beautiful.
