{Post 1,340} Back to Granny

This AM I am riding with a friend about 3-1/2 hours to pick up his old car.  He got a new one and left the old one at the dealership.  I will be driving the new wheels home ;)

Some of the fabrics have been fussy cut.  Others were just stack and whack.  I am enjoying the process.  I want more blue in the quilt, so I'll be on the lookout for some fabrics I like.  I use a 2-3/8" wide strip for the hexagons, so I need very little of each one.

I am taking the 3 unfinished blocks above to work on while he drives us up.  So here's a before picture.  I'll post a new one when I get home.  The top red block (second from the right) has the green diamonds sewn onto it.  I plan to use those for a path, but have to wait for final layout to see where they need to be sewn.  Since this is a queen-sized quilt, I've obviously got time!

{Post 1,339} Fabric Bookshelf in Place

Many hands do, indeed, make light work.  My husband, two sons, Rachel, and I got this moved up and into place and all the fabric bolts replaced in a very short amount of time.  I think I can fit all the other bolts down in the garage on the top of the green-curtained shelves.  I will remove the curtains and use the top section.  That will leave a wide shelf on there in the middle for some bins or boxes.

Tomorrow, I'll be painting a pegboard sheet to match my bedroom walls.  I have gathered some ideas for getting some things off of my cutting table and on a pegboard.
