    My Quilting Space

    I live in military post housing so the rooms are tiny. I turned one room into my sewing room when my son moved out. It took me months to organize everything. I use comic boards and empty bolts from my LQS. I am realy grateful to them because they were more than happy to collect them for me. The table came from IKEA and it cost $50. It is two sided and it folds to something tiny that can slide under my bed. Amazing! The Viking 500 is a loaner from Tirolgirl on the board. It has European voltage and I love it. The strips are scraps I usually cut up after a project. I cut most of the 1.5 strips at Torilgirl's house one evening and ended up making about 32 log cabin blocks when I got home. I love Tirogirl's log cabin quilts. The Featherweight I brought from a member of the board along with a 99K that is not shown. The machines are in excellent condition. I love them too. These pictures were from a month ago so my sewing space no longer looks like this. Stuff is everywhere but oh well...

    Wow, I love your organization ideas. The labeled bins for scraps are a great idea. Might just copy that if you don't mind. Every thing in your room looks so great.

    Awesome, beautiful space to craft in. I'm sure it helps to be organized in tight quarters. Great job!

    You have done a beautiful job but do you not worry about light & dust on all those fabulous fabrics? (Not saying you have a dusty house) I'd really be interested because I find cutting creates dust.

    First, thank you for your service to our country. Military housing can be tiny but you have certainly set up a great system that works for your space. I like your scrap bins and you have a very pretty stash.

    The labeling idea came from Tirolgirl. Now SHE has a STASH. A whole apartment dedicated to quilting. I LOVE her quilting rooms. Her quilts are amazing! I cover my exposed fabric with quilts in progress when I am not in the room. It works for me. Also, fabric does not stay in one place long enough to fade because I give lots away, swap and buy. The best place to get a good variety of different prints is from fabric.com's 3 pound remnants for $19.98, thrift stores and estate sales. Goodwill.com is excellent and the bids are almost always low.
