I have decided that the year 2013 is going to be my year for TRYING to get my sewing, and fabric rooms organized and hopefully to keep them that way.
I am starting in the fabric room as I feel this is the best place to start. Once I can get that room finished than I hope to move some of the bins of fabric from the sewing room into the fabric room thus giving me more space or "move" around.
In all honesty I have entirely TOO MUCH fabric, and I do "purge"
Our theme this year is "Yes, We Can!"
The idea is to select blocks that will challenge us to learn something new.
A block will be posted on the 1st of each month.
January - Whirling Star - From Quilter's Cache

i do everything by machine now even binding. i want to know which finger or fingers you put a thimble on since you have to size them and also what kind of thimbles are more comfortable and easy to use. im planning on trying to teach myself with videos and practicing ive also bought a couple of handquilting books to help. thanks ahead of time for all your help and info.

It is also the first quilt that I attached the binding on with my longarm. Haven't yet stitched
