Works in Progress Wednesday - The Reorg Edition

Being unable to find a pattern in my sewing room has prompted a bit of a reorg. I like being organized although it often takes me a few 'systems' before I get there. Although it probably doesn't look it to an outsider, my sewing room is about 70% organized effectively. It's that 30% that occassionally drives me crazy. I hate being unable to find things. So there will be some sorting, some moving. There will also be some purging of stuff. I picked up "Organizing Solutions for Every Quilter" by Carolyn Woods recently so that should help. Any tips for organizing patterns? Scraps? Cloth dyeing stuff? I'm looking forward to the reorg and to finding that bloody pattern!

So the quilty 411 this week is...

New Projects: 

Simply Solids Bee: For May, Shena chose this fun Alberta Triangles block. I was feeling springy so chose to do mine in greens and purples.

  1. I'm in awe of your productivity! I love the colours you've chosen for each project and particularly like Hard Core.

  2. I love Hard Core and Seeing the Forest. I can't wait to see more of Hard Core. It's all so beautiful!

  3. I am really anxious to see how you will be quilting Hard Core!
    I am constantly re-organizing my studio. Their always seems to be some area that needs a little clean-up! Good luck finding your pattern!

  4. I really like your hard core quilt! May I ask what your quilt pattern test surface is? That's a really neat technique.

  5. Love the colors you opted for in "hard core" -- very galactic ;)

  6. What a tease! I can hardly wait to see Hard Core!

  7. I love the way you use solids. Hard core is fabulous! And the Alberta Triangles block rocks too. I agree that it's very springy. :)


  8. Hard core is very eye catching! The colors are bold and striking!

  9. let us know how that book is - i wanted to buy it, but wasn't sure if i should spend money on what might just be a lost cause, knowing :).
    also, LOVE your trees quilt!! looks gorgeous with the binding!!

  10. I love the bee block! I've never quilted with solids other than the background but it looks fabulous!

  11. looking good! It'll be another smashing quilt!

  12. those are all so pretty! The hard core is especially stunning, can't wait to see it quilted.

  13. Wow lovely colours! Looks like you like solids too. (I'm also in a Simply solids bee- the Australasian group Fallow) I really really like Hard Core are you going to quilt it with rays?

  14. That's quite the list! I love the hard core quilt!

  15. Love Hard Core! Waiting to see what you do with it.
