I started in on the organization process yesterday. I have about 100 quilt magazines piled up to be discarded. I moved 19 quilts off of display shelves and about half filled those with books. I've got a long row to hoe here, but am just taking baby steps to organize this joint. I want to be ready to get back to guilt-free quilting come January 1st. I WILL NOT END UP 2010 WITH NEGATIVE NUMBERS! Just watch me!
A reserved kit landed on my doorstep, Many Blessings. This one will be quick and easy to do, and with the backing totaled 8.75 yards. I've made a couple of G.E. Designs quilts, and I really had fun making them. Very nicely written patterns.
Are you all watching Quilt Market reports on the various blogs? I am. I'm pleased to say that so far I haven't been too tempted. We'll see how I feel as more pictures are posted of the booths. So far there have been mostly meet-and-greet pictures, but I expect the fabrics and quilts will be showing up today.
A confession: Jane caught me pulling bolts of Somerset Cottage this week at a local quilt shop. She stopped me with the reminder that I have already signed up for the Bespoke Blooms BOM at The Fat Quarter Shop. "But it's Robyn Pandolph fabric," I whined. She replied, "If you want to make an RP quilt, go upstairs and open up your RP closet. You have enough there to make 50 quilts." Sigh. I love Jane. She's so smart!
I have eight or ten quilts to bind which I'll start on next weekend. I think most of the bindings are already made, so there won't be much, if any, stashbusting going on. But at least it's forward progress here at the Quilting Condo.
