OK – not the best pictures; but the best I’ve got for now…I have finally folded all of my fabric in the same way – making for a colorful and fun display. Very pleasing to my eye. I prefer to sort by color and not by style or line or manufacturer because that is the way I quilt – mixing old and new, cotton and linen.. There is one more shelf above and below than are shown in this view. They have the plastic boxes filled with BOM’S! Oh, and I have hung that clock on the wall.
You can see the method I used to fold the fabrics over here.
This is a view from the corner of my room (where design wall meets fabric display). The large table is a hollow wooden door covered with cheapo muslin and supported by custom built shelving. (not shown) The white box on the table is a ‘trash diving’ find that I painted up and use to keep some notions at hand. I have so many notions, that I can’t possible keep them all at hand! The chest of drawers (below the rulers) has many more notions like templates, (you know how I love my Marti Michelle!) as well as more pins, button makers, and doo-dads.
The rulers (oh – my lovely rulers) are being displayed in an office mail rack (cascading) as well as a traditional wooden ruler rack, or two.
My computer desk is below the window and is a mess as is the rest of the room!
In this picture get a better sense of the space. (which is really only about half of the space, if you can believe it!). The muslin that I stapled to the ceiling has yet to be completed, it’s get hard around the lights! You can see (barely) the little shelf I made for my iron on the right side of the design wall. Lots of plugs abound in this room – yet I still manage to blow the breakers…
And finally – (for today) – the completed top of the Fraktur Quilt… Thankfully, after all of the applique, cutting, piecing, sewing, ripping, sewing, ripping, sewing again, ripping again! and sewing again, I am still in love with it!
I promise many more shots of the studio to come (sooner rather than later) as well as more detailed pictures.
