The First and a Finish

>> Sunday, November 1, 2015

Halloween is over for another year, but not before we had some fun decorating!


It did end up raining quite a bit, but since the trick or treaters started really early (like 5 o'clock!) we turned the lights out by 8 anyway.

Before Halloween night was over I did have a quilt finish making it my second one for the month!

My Quilty Barns and Mini Spools quilt! I machine quilted it this month and did the binding by machine too. Halloween night I sat on the couch and handstitched the hanging sleeve down while waiting to hand out candy.

Between my two quilting finishes I folded my stash!
The top row has piles of Tula Pink (jelly roll and fat quarters), Christmas, Bari. J. with Tim Holtz and some Mary Engelbreit, and the final pile is Cotton and Steel.
The bottom row has two piles of fat quarters, Harvest Joy picks, and pieces that are a yard/meter or more.

I do have a bit more fabric, but not much. The rest is set aside with specific projects or backings that were bought for specific projects.

Folding my fabric became a *thing* that preoccupied me while I was finishing my first quilt this month (one you'll get to see next year!) 

I promised myself that when the quilt was finished I would take the time to fold my fabric.
I extra procrastinated by perusing Pinterest for pretty directions too.

I used the folding method from Rachel at In Color Order that she shows in this video:

I'm so glad I did. It is calming to look at these fabrics all folded, neat and ready. I have even run my hand along the folded fronts as I walked by once. Or twice.

How do you organize your stash?

With Joy,

Love your finished quilt! So colourful and bright. My stash is a mess most of the time as I pull things out to see if they will work and can't take the time to refold them nicely. Never enough time for the sewing I want to do!
