Many of my friends have spent time this summer organizing their studios, purging their stashes, cleaning their messiness. Not me! Local people and blog friends all bit by the Dreaded Cleaning Virus. But not me!
I posted on FB that I really had to go down and get organized and cleaned up before the Board of Health came to shut me down. And downstairs I went.
And these blocks, the last of which had been finished just the day before, were on the wall.
What would you have done?
I thought so.
It didn't take long, really, to put 36 finish-at-7" blocks together. This baby quilt is designated for someone who isn't here yet, but, by gum, when s/he does arrive, this quilt, the one I've called "Rummage Sale" because of the huge variety of fabrics, will be waiting in warm welcome.
Once that was taken care of, I really did get down to work. Himself paused in his work to take me to Home Depot where we purchased five more great big Rubbermaid tubs. And then I came home and sorted. Didn't take time to press and minutely organize, just put them into categories:
- Big Tub: Kaffe Collective
- Big Tub: Batiks
- Smaller Tub: More Batiks
- Big Tub: Black/White/Gray
- Smaller Tub: Bill
- Smaller Tub: Brights
- Smaller Tub: Solids
And then I opened the cordless iron my sister had given me on my birthday and plugged it in. I put the two quilts who needed borders along with their border fabric on top of the tubs. I washed down the sewing table. And then I had a shower and a big glass of water.
Update on the Froggy Mug Rug Give-Away: I've heard nary a word from Nancia, who was a no-reply commenter, so I drew a second name and the rug is going to Karla.
