My corner of the quilt world...



When I really get focused on a quilt my mess begins. I think "I'll clean it up when I finish the top" and I usually do. There's nothing like posting pictures on the Internet and reviewing posts like this to help motivate me to do just that!

For me quilting is best when it's fast and fun. This is my method for creating those results. In my sewing room I like to sew with an L shape work space. My chair and sewing machine are parked together and I've lowered my ironing board to the level of my chair. Yes, yes, I know, this means no exercise-which may be the only quilters get-getting up and down to iron something. I make an effort to exercise every other day on the treadmill and so far I've stuck to it. Maybe my appetite has increased since exercising, cause I haven't lost any weight, but, oh well...will try harder...smile...


At least it's Spring! The robins are back and the sun is shining and the daffodils are blooming...smile...

Looks like you win the prize for the "before" clean up.
I also like to clean up after the project. There's just no point otherwise....is there??

I do the same thing with my ironing board. The chair I quilt in is on rollers so I just turn to the side and iron.....thhhhhaaat's probably why I am getting a "quilters bottom" now that I think about it! heehee

It's nice seeing the daffodils. I love springtime. It'll be a while before we have spring in Alaska.

My studio is pretty messy right now too. I don't actually throw strips over my shoulder like Eleanor Burns, but I have to confess, I sometimes drop them on the floor by my feet, to be picked up before starting the next project.
