A blast from the past and something new

I have been on a mad cleaning rampage in my studio and general area.

In my cleaning, I came across a couple of quilt blocks from a quilt that I made for my niece about 15 years ago.  It was a quilt full of family photo’s mostly of her but a smattering of everyone else.  The blocks were about 8 x 8 and each one had a photo in the center.  The back had Georgia Tech 20200229_164038fabric.  She got it for her college graduation from …..Georgia Tech.  Oh, and yes, I made the Minnie Mouse costume she is wearing.  I used to have a photo album of all the quilts I had made way back then, but they were lost in a flood.  I should ask her for a photo.

The other photo was in my parent’s back yard.  It was a really cute quilt.

Happy Sewing, Happy Quilting

  1. Hey Lori. You now have the set up I have! It is also birch. I have the Elfa system from the Container Store. Love them. The neat thing about having a set up like that is the easy way to use muslin For the covers. You can wash it when dirty or change it when too messed up.

  2. That is a spectacular ironing station. I may need to rethink my situation here. I have the ironing board we got as a wedding gift 30 years ago, and it is getting a little creeky. My storage is two short dressers from a garage sale, and the legs fall off when I open the drawers. You have inspired me!

  3. This is a great ironing station!! I have a large board covering my very old ironing board from when we got married. It works but certainly could be better and I’m not using the space underneath at all 😦 Btw, have you had a chance to use the ‘new’ basting spray from June Tailor? If so, your thoughts? I got mine in the mail a few months ago but haven’t used it yet.

  4. Hi Lori! What a fabulous ironing station. I have my ironing board sitting at the end of my bed – it’s a bit unconventional but it’s nice with a ceiling fan right over it. I stay cooler when ironing in the summer. I LOVE your setup though. I wish I had the room for a setup like that. ~smile~ Roseanne
