Turkey Tracks: July 10, 2017
This kind of thing happens when I lose my sewing focus and spend hours outside.
I start to sew but find myself reorganizing sewing supplies and fabrics.
Yes, I really use all these colors…
They are the result of 20+ years of quilting.
Done–the spools were a snarly mess.
I spent one summer totally redoing my stash–cutting up lots of it into Bonnie Hunter’s stash system of strips and cut squares and rectangles. I have not looked back from that effort.
And I spent another summer making 4-patch squares in an effort to empty the 2-inch square bin which was overflowing. I finished with 1,600!!! 4-patches and still have some left after making FIVE quilts to use them up.
What will this summer bring? Am I finished after organizing the thread spools? Can I get back to actually sewing something now?
I did finish Big Star Quilt. Pics to come.

OMG! That’s a lot of thread! Happy Quilting!
I am so envious of so many filled bobbins!!!
