Many of you have seen my quilting closet, but I don't think I post my space in the basement very much if at all. So, here it is...to the left is an old sewing table (the one with plant on it) and when it is open, I have a piece of plywood I use so my sewing machine won't fall through. It is perfect for many of the larger quilts and free motion quilting I do.
My bolt of Warm and Natural batting stands next to my large oak file cabinet that holds lots of files, but the 3rd drawer down, holds my quilting patterns, greeting cards, newspaper clippings of things I want to make in the future or crafty ideas.
On the table is the fabric that Linda from Abby Mays fabric shop sent me for the Schneider family of Wisconsin who lost their home to a tornado earlier in the year. There are 120 5 1/2" squares that need to be cut into 4 triangles each! Hello Sizzix and Accuquilt, where are you?? I keep signing up to win an Accuquilt, but so far no luck, but then, all of us want one of these amazing things so we can quilt quicker!
Here is a close up of the stacked squares that will begin being triangulated later today. I love the colors and the fabric and I know the brightness will give this family hope.
If anyone of you out there know of any blogs that are having giveaways for a Sizzix or Accuquilt, please let me know and as always, I will keep you all posted when I find them as well.
