Recreational Chevrons and Organization skills

My good friend Heather asked me to make her a chevron quilt, including her favorite things.  Bicycles and retro campers.
This quilt was so fun to make.  It's no secret that I ♥ chevrons.  She picked out the main novelty prints, and I added in the blue and grey fabrics.


She also wanted a 'foot cozy' with delightfully soft fleece fabric to keep her tootsies warm.
This was my first time doing a 'foot cozy' and I definitely learned how to make it better next time.
We dropped this off to her yesterday and it was a success.
I'm so happy she loved it and SOOO happy she chose me to make this for her! 
I'm beyond honored.

Thanks Heather!!

In other news, I was told my sewing area looked 'like crap'!  Haha!
It is true - it did!
So, Saturday I got some organizational items to clean it up.
Ohhh, how I love owls and Target.  They always have cute owl stuff.
I got this cute owl binder to house all my patterns, that had been laying in a big unfortunate messy pile.

Got some page protectors and Voila!  Now if I'm looking for a pattern, I can find it.
Wow - organization at it's finest. ;)  Amazing.

Of course I had to get the matching magazine holder.
Need a quilting magazine?  I have a shameful amount of them.

My rack of crap.
I found this cute 'Quilting Queen' sign and of course I had to have it.
It sits nicely on my rack of crap. 

Have a lovely week!

  4. I love the idea of a foot cozy at the bottom of the quilt. It would be great if you told us how you did it.

  7. Your chevron quilt is beautiful, love the colors! And your organization stuff looks fun, too - my area is in desperate need of a revamp, but it's going to take a trip to IKEA for me!

    Whoop whoop!!
