    That to me just looks like organized chaos.... Everything in its place, and I bet you know right where everything is.

    Gosh, I don't think it's too bad!

    I don't have a dedicated space. DH has taken over the basement with pool table and office, and for whatever reason is reluctant to make one of the spare rooms a sewing room. I've basically taken over the family room - which is mostly fine, as the family is grown and gone, lol. It just doesn't look nice as it's open concept into the kitchen, which just had a major remodel.

    It really doesn’t look messy, but a well-used quilting studio. If a room is sterile, it doesn’t look used.

    I guess I should take some pictures of mine.

    You have a wonderful room to create quilted treasures! Have kicked around the idea of using a spare bedroom for my quilting room (currently using the dining room), but feel a little guilty about not having a bedroom available if overnight relatives come. It was my daughter's bedroom, and feel that I should keep it "her room." A friend recently told me she had gotten over the idea of what might make the kids happy a long time ago, and uses her house as she feels like! ha ha. Some day I might have to take her advice. Enjoy your great quilting/sewing studio!

    I think it looks lovely. My home is my sewing room and it looks like a fabric store exploded in it! Seems my 'take it out' gene is in fine working order but the 'put it back where you got it' gene is completely missing.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
