I finally got around to taking a picture of the christmas quilt my mom made me. It is the perfect size to hang above my sewing table. So what if it is christmasy colors and it is already January? I gave mom the olive colored fabric with the polka dots on it. She was oohing and ahhing over it at Hobby Lobby one day and I managed to get a half yard of it for her without her noticing. Mom hand quilted it using Tonya's free-hand baptist fans. Thanks again Mom - I love it!
I worked some more today on reorganizing the sewing room. Getting rid of lots of scraps. Now I can't wait to get my new sewing table into the room.
I have had several funny comments about not buying any fabric this year. I consider my fabric stash to be a reasonable size. It all fits inside of a normal size bedroom dresser. But this is still way more fabric than I could use up in several years! I have already told my mom that she needs to call me before she goes shopping at JoAnn's. I also told my sister that she needs to take up quilting in a big way - so that she too can help use up this fabric! It is not that I don't love buying new fabric - but why buy fabric if I am never going to use it? I want to try and make several more Quilts of Valor this year. Does anyone know of any other charities that collect quilts for adults? Most of my fabric is more adult oriented.
