Summer Sewing

Hmmmm…

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.
