Tonight is the monthly get-together of my friendly little quilting group, and I’ll finally be starting on these.
“These” are 6 ½”*6 ½” and 2 ½”*6 ½” pieces of greenish fabric which I have to transform into a confirmation quilt for my oldest nephew by the beginning of September. I cut the pieces almost 4 years ago when I was making a family quilt for grandson’s christening. Cutting 2 quilts at a time is such a time saver when you already have all the fabric out anyway.
Come to think of it, this colour range is very similar to the colours in these pictures with which I wanted to work.
I have spent a lot of time down in my studio lately, reclaiming it as my space. It’s not like someone else took the space from me; more like I’ve taken over the rest of the house. I have been working on our dining room table for a long time, and now even I was bothered by the clutter. So, I have cleared 5 shelves in my book cases and am ready for everything to have a place. Think of all the time I’ll save not having to look for stuff. The fabric stash is left untouched though, at least for now, but I am resolved getting the fabric hoarding under control.
I need a new chair for the studio, the one I have does not support my back as much as I wish and I need to take care of the old thing (back, not chair). What kind of chair do you use while quilting? High back, low back, tilt, arm rests?
