Caution signs should be erected!

I have been digging through my scraps, cutting more 2-1/2" strips and working diligently on my Strip Twist quilt. There is fabric EVERYWHERE in the studio. I really wish I could be one of those women who are organized enough to sort fabric (put away the rejects), cut strips (organize by color, put in a container and throw away unusable scraps), sit at the machine and make strip sets (sort into groups), etc.

Instead - my strategy is to dig a little, cut a little, sew a little and then leave the room. I would be embarrassed if anyone saw it but since the studio is on the third floor it really is an "out of sight, out of mind" kind of place. I LOVE my studio!

Anyway, 3 more block sets and I am ready to start the layout. (Actually, I started the layout but Gracie thought it would be fun to tear through them and wreak havoc.) Because I don't know how to function without having a couple of on going projects, I am going shopping on Saturday for fabric to make a table topper for my DIL.

Photos coming soon!!


  1. I wish I could come up there and go shopping with you!!

    That would be so much fun and relaxing.

  2. I have a Strip Twist done that is one of the 9 tops that need to be quilted. I should get busy and do that, shouldn't I?

  3. Oh I wish that I was one of those types of quilters too! When you figure out how to do that, please let me know how it works!

  4. I believe there are no rules, or set ways to quilt. Whatever makes you happy and you are comfortable is my theory.

    Have fun and I can't wait to see your quilt top.

  5. Do those women really exist? I thought it was an urban legend ....
