I love having 3 days off! Too bad it's a long dry spell until our next one in May. I was able to get a lot accomplished this weekend. I got the top together for my Anniversary Stars quilt and chose the border fabrics from my stash. I thought I had some yardage of the Rhubarb and Ginger for the borders and backing, but what I had were some of the purple prints from the Sweet Romance line (same designers). I'm not completely pleased because the red is more pink than Rhubarb & Ginger, but I also do not want to go out and buy yards and yards more fabric to make the borders "perfect." I hope I will be able to live with my decision!
I also sewed the blocks together for the Charming Hearts tablerunners. I won't bother to post pictures of either of these finishes, since they look pretty much the same as the last photos and I don't want to bore you.
I looked around my sewing room, trying to find SOMETHING interesting that I could share on my blog. Well, what about my fabric stash? How do you store your fabrics? I have 3 main storage areas - the first is a CD tower that is a perfect fit for my folded fat quarters.
Last but not least is my double-wide sliding-door closet. I wasn't able to stand far enough back to give you the full floor-to-ceiling perspective, but - believe me - it is stacked floor-to-ceiling. The other side is too! Fabrics are sorted by collection or project in a labeled box. Some of the largest boxes are either large backing pieces or things I have a lot of, like backgrounds. I also have many Rubbermaid boxes full of fabrics that are grouped by color, which I find really helps me when I am pulling things to coordinate with a particular print.
