This is what I did today

I had a smaller bookcase in my other house's sewing room.  Today I decided to get it out of the attic and clean it up.  I also recently put two totes of Calicos up there.  Well, I've been in that attic 3 times since I put them up there, one would think "duh" you need that fabric back in your sewing room.  I use baskets so I don't look like a Horder, rflol  who me?????

I moved all my "modern" fabrics to the new bookcase.  It fit perfectly at the end of the other's.  I straightened fabrics and straightened.  It's also a great way to know what you have in your stash.  I must have a fasination with green fabric, I have a lot of it, but very little Red, which is my favorite color.  Oh well, it's nice and tidy now.  I presently have 3 quilts active, lol....on on the quilting frame that I didn't count.

I've ordered Carrot colored Jumbo Rick Rack, it should be here Monday, that's for a quilt I haven't even started yet out of the "More of the William Morris Applique" book. 

I'll post pictures as soon as I progress along enough for you to tell what you're looking at.

El Pajaro en el jardin de flores

I've named my Jacobean.  my husband, David, said that looks Mexican.  I'm sure it's because of the background fabric.  I love love love it, so bright and pretty.  It's so much fun to work on.  Here is the beginnings of it.  Some smal pieces of applique, but it's going faster than I thought it would.

Pink, Pink, Pink baby girl quilt. Chevron Log Cabin

All machined.  This quilt is for Sale.  I usually make bright baby quilts, however my daughter said "Mom, everyone doesn't like bright baby quilts"  I said, well I feel sorry for them, laughing.  So, here is my try at a soft baby quilt, it's really cuddly and sweet.
