Not its permanent home, but here's a quick snap of the finished Libertyville, my 2005 KC Star Block of the Month. Finished handstitching the binding down and sewing the label on the back this morning. Always glad to check another one off the list! I completed my calendar strip for July this morning also. You may remember that this is a project I am doing with an online group. We add a strip a day and will have a Chinese Coins style quilt to remember 2006 when we're done. Pretty painless way to get a quilt top. Thank-Yous and Answers. Thought I would take a minute and reply to some comments I've had recently. First, a HUGE thank-you to all who gave advice on re-organizing my stash. I am wanting to get it out of the tubs and onto shelves. I know I will be able to better utilize the fabric once I can SEE it better. I find that I won't always take the time to dig through a tub if I'm not sure what is in there. I am still struggling with freeing up space. I like having notebooks and other resources close at hand in the sewing room, but they really take up lots of prime real estate. Gotta bite that bullet! Also some of you asked about the quilts I had for sale at the garage sale. I will be putting them up on eBay eventually. I was a bit red-faced about that--I sure didn't want it to seem that I was trying to sell stuff off my blog!!! Some asked what I would do with the 5" squares I am swapping with my mini-group. Most of the group had originally wanted to do a charm quilt. I am still not sure how I will use mine. My two top thoughts--as of now--are either a 1000 Pyramid quilt or Broken Dishes. Love both of those! Even if I never made a quilt from the squares, I just really like having them around.
