I asked my bee members to make any size and any number of blocks they wanted. So sashing this quilt has been an undertaking. I also want to balance the colors throughout the quilt so I don't get big patches of yellow poking me in the eye every time I look at the finished product. .
I took the scraps that were sent back and made tiny geese
and tucked them into the sashing, too.
A big part of the reason I started working on this quilt again (and took any photos of it) is that grommet that you see at the top of the next photo. My design wall used to be a tacked up, much-too-large quilt batting in my dark basement sewing studio. These squares were up on that
and the excess batting was spilling on to the floor and the sewing table.
I liked the square placement, but the wall set up was unmanageable. Then Felicity gave me the idea of using a picnic tablecloth as a design space. I bought three tablecloths, installed hooks on the wall and punched grommets into the table cloths. Now I have THREE design walls and they are portable for photography or for sorting colors in daylight. I'm a much happier crafter now :)
And now I don't worry about the batting on the floor. I can focus on geese, geese and more geese.
Are there any studio organization tips that have transformed your crafting lately?
