Less than a month ago, I cleaned off my cutting table and promised myself to keep it neat and tidy. Here’s the site that greeted me this morning:
Even with my twisted way of thinking, this is not neat and tidy! I’m in the middle of a project and these fabrics are all being used. Maybe today I’ll finish this quilt top and put all the yardage away and stick all the extra squares in their respective plastic boxes.
Less than a month ago (same day actually), I picked up all the fabric that was on the floor. I have a terrible habit of pulling fabrics to audition for the next quilt, spreading them on the floor, and leaving them there . . especially if they don’t work and I’m not going to use them. When I put everything away three weeks ago, I promised myself that I would put all the fabric back on the shelves if it doesn’t work or, if it does work, I’d stack it with the pattern in a storage bin. Here’s what I saw this morning.
The greens/browns are for one project. The pinks/corals are rejects from the current project which is spread on the cutting table. The little Christmas print . . don’t have a clue why that one is there. I guess it fell out when I was pulling out another fabric.
And yet another project spread out in the floor. This is the one I’m going to do next.
I guess I’m just a messy quilter! What can I say?
