That box......


I had a lovely break doing lots of my own sewing... whilst trying to have a bit of tidy up and get myself 'organised' for the next year....

Mostly my tidying up created a mess.....


Part of my 'babies' bin sorting has ended up as these three small quilts  using different parts of a little panel in the centre….


They are now pinned and in the quilting queue.....

Then I worked on chopping up the towelling in the box... with some fabrics and cut out a bunch of bibs......



The minky was teamed up with some mesh.....


Different fabrics chopped into 5" squares and partnered with some 4 patch blocks....


Minky has become dusters!  Anybody would think I am a clean freak!!  something in the minky really catches up dust so well though and it was a piece too long and narrow for anything else, and I hate throwing good fabric out....


I now have a plan for my "I Spy" fabrics... and chopping into 3 1/2" square pictures has begun.... will be an ongoing project as I don't have a big range.... nice to have something to keep little pictures for though.....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Having things set out and ready has meant any spare  few minutes I can do a few seams.....


These 6 small quilt tops are now together.....


quite a nice way to use some pretty baby fabrics.....


…. now they are in piles with their backings, wadding and binding....


… in that quilting queue!!!!

end result... the box is not empty but certainly a lot better



Righto, Gotto Go......… job, job....

Hello Fiona,

Cleaning with pink cloths will make the dusting just that bit more fun.
Love the quilts you got made up, especially love that koala fabric.

Happy days.

Such good uses for all those little bits and pieces! And the small quilts will finish up fast when you get to them, which is always so satisfying :)

Well, now, aren’t you just full of inspiration for others! At least for me!! Yesterday I thought I should make up some bibs to use up the toweling in my bin, and then this post! I’m on it! Thanks for the kick in the........(fill in the blank). XO

You have achieved a lot. It's good to have things ready to go, for when you have just a few moments.

Great work getting organised...my organising always results in a big mess and indecision LOL! I am sure you will slowly add to the eye spy blocks, they make great kids quilts.

So many projects organised. You have really jumped into it. You have found some great ways to use your fabrics. I hate seeing it go to waste too and love any new ideas.
