Tackling it Tuesday worked…we tackled that flooring one more time…albeit it was new flooring (we returned the other stuff!) and got ‘er done!! The new sewing room is starting to take shape and looks incredible!
Hmmmm…looks kind of small, doesn’t it? Maybe we should be knocking out that left wall??…(:o}
So today I am hoping to whip it all into shape! First I need to paint the baseboards, which should be easy as they aren’t nailed down yet.
Then I can start to move my sewing stuff in…YIKES!! I thought this would be the fun part but, man, there is a lot of stuff to move! And I don’t want all the unnecessary crap going back in…you know…things like magazines that you have been saving for a million years!!
So last night, I started to go through those magazines…and out of about 40 magazine this is what I am saving…(yes, I pulled the patterns out of the magazines and they will go into plastic sleeve covers and put into binders).
I have loved this quilt for years and years…would you believe..Quiltmaker July/Aug ‘97!
And this one…McCall’s Quilting Vintage Quilts…yup…still lovin’it!!
Just lately I am appreciating the Bear’s Paw block…this is from the same magazine, McCall’s Quilting Vintage Quilts ‘98.
See…do you see an obsession starting…I will file these two together…this one is designed by Kelly Corbridge…(no magazine name or year on the bottom of the page!)
There was no pattern for this bowtie quilt…but it’s from 1994 and it was designed by Shirley Botsford. I love the way they have finished this bow tie quilt off.
I am filing this one away in the binder that’s labeled ‘Future Grand Babies’…just in case…(Found in Fons and Porter Fall 2007)
This one would be perfect made from all those 30’s fabrics that I bought at Monica’s GS this winter…it’s called ‘Cherries Jubilee’ and can be found in Quilt Magazine (what.. no date!!) The designer is Karen DuMont.
Be still my heart!! I have wanted this pattern ever since someone out in blogland made this beauty!! And here I had the pattern all along or at least from Aug 2003 (American Patchwork and Quilting). It’s a Jo Morton design…lovin’it!!!
So from forty magazines, I have a wee stack of patterns…to be sleeved and organized into binders. I’m liking this…a lot! Why didn’t I do this YEARS ago??
What about YOU?…WHAT’S IN YOUR…MAGAZINES?
Now I only have about 200 more magazines to go through…and that’s no exaggeration! But I will get ‘er done because it’s…Whip-it-into-Shape-Wednesday!! Yeah!
I hope you have your own wonderful Whip-It Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P
