How would you like a little peek at my quilt studio. It isn’t a big space but I try and use every little inch of it. I just cleaned it up the other day and rearranged things. This is something I do every couple months….trying to figure out how to squeeze just a little bit more in my space. I am very thankful to have a room just for quilting.
Here is a better look at the wall I showed the other day, when I am sewing and look up this is what I see.
I have had several people notice my rulers in other photos. I have used white finishing nails to hang some of them. The rest are stored all the way to the right. I have cork board on the cabinet fronts and after I rearranged my wall I decided all the little notes and things I had stuck on the cupboards was too messy so I moved all my little notes to the inside of the cabinet doors (yes, they have cork board on them too) and hung up some of my smaller quilts.
For the last couple of months I have had my laptop in my quilt room, now when I look up this is what I see. When I’m quilting a big quilt I just close up my laptop and move it off of the table.
The white shelves hold all batiks, books and my AccuQuilt dies and on the top is fusible batting and different interfacings.
You can see that my cutting mat is deeper than the cabinet counter so Builder Bob cut a piece of wood the size of the mat. I use just a small ironing surface in here. You can see some thread on the wall.
You can see some of my quilts on top of the fabric bookcase. The two right hand shelves that are pretty empty…..don’t usually look that neat…..that is where projects I am working on stack up.
Notice my stool that I use for sewing…..I actually have two of them, one for each machine. They don’t take up much room and make it easy to turn around, stand up and cut or iron. My favorite machine is the 15-91 vintage Singer sewing machine…..I have 3!
I am going to put up a page with links to all the different posts I have done as we made changes in my room. If you are wondering what is hiding in all the cabinets you’ll find out there.
