    I have it posted on a couple websites Flickr and Webshots, as well as a forum which is about sewing room organization.

    Actually, it was pretty easy, and fun, it just took some thought and a several trips to the Ikea Bargain Bin (As Is department).

    I do too, that table is the heart of my room. I am so moved by color, that I had to figure out a way to display as much as possible. My first thought was fat quarters in the windows. It didn't take long to realize that was going to be way too much fabric. I rigged up a way to place little snippets of fabric on foam board inserts and popped them in the window recesses. It works great, I get to see the color, and was able to get the 400+ pieces together thanks to my sewing buddy and her huge stash.

    If there is any more I can tell you about this one, just let me know. It was easy to make, I spent more time arranging my rulers than hubby spent making the holes for the nuts/bolts. We took one ruler to the hardware store to pick the right size nut/bolt combo.

    Pictures of my quilts...I will get some up soon. I am new at this, so be easy on me! :)

    Thanks again everyone, it's been fun sharing with you. The only thing better is if you could all just actually come by!

    And here's another nice room from one of our many quilters. All I have to do is sit here and get lovely ideas for my room someday. Great room

    What an awesome sewing room. I love all the lighting! Your hubby is a keeper! I'll bet you hardly ever come out of there! So now let's see some of your quilting projects!

    After we finished the room I told him that if anything happens to me, he should suspect my single sewing gal pals! :shock: Then I suggested that he might join a local quilt guild or online quilt forum to find a replacement! :lol:

    The room is 13 x 14, including the closets, so there's definitely not a future for a quilting machine in there! Any size space can be fun to plan, and some of the small ones are the cutest I've seen.

    You can borrow him, but beware he is not a designer at all. However he can do modifications, and handle any electrical, phone or cable installs you might want! And, when it's all done he'll continually tell you that you need to buy more fabric to fill up all the cabinets! :D

    Wonderful!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing! You have done a great job of organizing your sewing room. We are building a new home, so I may "borrow" some of your ideas for my sewing room if that's okay!

    Happy Sewing!

    Thanks again everyone.


    Sara, "borrow" all the ideas you'd like! Actually there are more ideas on my Flickr page. I made some drawer organizers and also show how I made the fabric drawer inserts.

    Check it out, and if you have anything you want to know more about, drop me a line! :)

    Oh, I did check out your flicker page! The drawer fronts are such a great idea!!!!!!!!!! At first, I thought you sure had alot of fabric in your stash, but then realized how you'd done it. Very clever!

    Again, thanks for sharing! It may be spring before I get to that stage, but I've got it bookmarked!

    I can't get over it...it is like out of a magazine....with a room like this you could have 10 projects going on at the same time, and it would still look neat. I'm not neat by nature. This is a dream come true to us quilters here!
    congratulations...every quilter deserve a room like this!!

    I definitely AM lucky! He's the best, we make a good team! It's his birthday today and I am spoiling him!

    Loretta & Celeste... the fox photos were taken while we were on vacation, about 100 miles from here. I didn't know how to make a separate folder in Flickr, so they are included right with my sewing room photos. I do love them though. They were incredibly fearless and soooo cute. They are smaller than I thought they'd be, not much larger than a house cat. No foxes actually in my neighborhood, plenty of coyotes, eagles, a nesting pair of spotted owls, and a lynx was seen in the yard (but only once).

    Catherine,
    Believe me...it does not always look that 'neat'. However, because of the 12 drawers in the cutting table, which are pretty large, and the two closets with organized space, it is very easy to keep the work surfaces cleared off, which keeps me happy -- there's always room to do something! :)
