It's amazing what you come across when you start to really organize!
I decided I wanted ALL of my quilting fabric in my sewing room. I had all my fat quarter tubs, and all of my strip and scrap tubs in there, but all of my more-than-one-yard pieces were still on the third floor. And that made it really hard to see what I had when trying to pull fabrics for a quilt. So, about 400 trips back and forth, up and down the stairs with armloads of fabric.....and it was all together!
I pulled the two big bookcases down to my room, and refolded everything, and put it back on the shelves, all color coordinated! Yikes! It looks fabulous! And I can see EVERYTHING!
Funny how you don't think you like blue very much, but then you look at your stash.....and well.....3 stacks of blue! Sheesh! Who knew!?!
So, as I'm pulling all this fabric out of the 3rd floor room.....I came across 3 projects that I had totally lost track of! And I'm so glad I found them, because one of them is nearly done!
This Ohio Star was started when I lived in Massachusetts, about 13 years ago! It has about 25 of the 63 stars hand quilted (machine pieced). This was my first try at hand quilting, and someone should have told me that you shouldn't start on such a damned big quilt! Sheesh! I was so sick of black and red, I just couldn't look at it anymore, much less work on it! I do like it, but it's going to be a slow process of finishing it. We'll see what happens!
Isn't it fun to find things that you had totally lost track of!?! There's a whole lot of memories connected to these 3 quilts, as well. I loved finding them.....now I just need to get busy on them! lol
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
