Folding Fabric-A Quick Tip

Quilt Room Organization

Nancy Zieman Fabrics

Good Morning, Quilters!

It’s taken me awhile, but I think I have found all of the fabric I had stashed throughout my house…

It’s sorted and neatly folded in my fabulous new sewing room!  Hurray!!!

HOW LONG CAN THIS LAST?

Unfortunately….

Not long!

But I found this YouTube video by SewVeryEasy...on how to fold fabric.

It’s Brilliant!  (Wish I’d seen it before I filled the cupboards!)

As much as I promise myself to keep this clean…

I know my creative style…

M-E-S-S-Y!!!

THE CREATIVE CYCLE

Mess.  Clean.  Mess. Organize.  Mess.

What about YOU?

Are you more creative when your studio is clean?

Do you keep your sewing room clean?

We’d LOVE to hear!

My Sewing Studio-Before and After!

 

Sewing Room, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

Do you remember the”Before” photos of my sewing room?  (I wrote about it HERE and HERE)  It was an organized mess–BUT it was brightly lit–so I loved it!

Last year I started the process of remodeling my sewing room…

The shelves were installed in December…

And I lived half in and half out of the room while I waited for the painter….

The real hardship came along with the painter– I couldn’t be in the room for ten days!

But it was definitely worth the wait!!!!

I am slowly moving in—organizing and purging as I go.

I’ve even found a few lost friends (more UFOs!)

It’s a little slice of heaven…

You won’t be seeing me for some time….

Cooking?  1-800-PIZZA

Lost in the upstairs room,

What Makes a Quilt Timeless?–And an Assignment

Red and White Wedding Quilt

Good Morning, Quilters!

Several weeks ago, my sisters and I came across several boxes of old quilt magazine and books.  As we perused the magazines, we were struck by how dated many of the quilts appeared—not at all to our current taste.

The quilts were all well made quilts–after all they were featured in magazines and books-so that was not the problem….

It was the patterns and the colors and the fabrics…

So then we challenged ourselves to find quilts that we did like

The only common denominator–as in quilts we all agreed stood the test of time–was two color quilts–like red and white or blue and white quilts.

Hmmm….

Will OUR quilts stand the test of time?  Do we care if they do?

Can YOU help my sisters and I figure out the secret sauce to timeless quilts?

 

Quilting the Double Wedding Ring, Kennedy

YOUR ASSIGNMENT this week:

Go through your Quilt Notebook: The Unfinished Project Page or box of UFOs…

Are there any partially completed quilts that are two color quilts?  Perhaps they deserve more consideration as a priority quilt?

Are there any quilt tops or UFOs that are already outdated?  Perhaps it’s time to let go…

You might want to alter your Big Three–The Quilt Notebook:  Setting Priorites

Do YOU have time to make quilts that aren’t timeless??? 

What is Timeless to YOU?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Signed,

Setting Priorities in my Quilting Life,

Lori
