On the Brightside...

The quilting is coming along great on the Whirlygiggles quilt. In fact when I am done with this post I am going to go and quilt some more on it. As I work on this quilt, I am loving it more and more, therefore making it that much harder to give away. That going to be lucky child.


I wish I could say that the piecing on the Midwest Modern quilt is going just as great :-( It seems that I was wrong when I did the cutting of the pieces, I cut them just a bit to short. As in the words of Project Runway "make it work". I'm going to make each block a little bit smaller and add another border to the quilt to end up close to the same size. The pattern has me cutting the border long ways, therefore I will have enough fabric for my other border. Woot! The extra was to be the backing fabric, but I can get more. Like I need a reason to go fabric shopping.


I did some cleaning of my quilting room yesterday and I just wanted to share a before and after of my fat quarters. I still have little more cleaning to do, but I am on the right track. It will be nice to have a clean room again. It's not been cleaned in days, months, years.

BEFORE

AFTER

I will show you more of the room once it is all done. We'll do a grand unveiling.
