Anything Goes Mondays #74

For those of you that have been following along my blog and Anything Goes Mondays might have noticed that today was supposed to be a host blog post.  On the 1st of each month we have a host for Anything Goes Mondays, and today it was supposed to be Jackie from NW Patchwork, but I was unable to get hold of her.  She's not been blogging since March of this year and she has not responded to my emails.  I sincerely hope all is well with her... but we will continue as before and today's linkup will resume as usual.

Anything Goes took a break for a few weeks, and during that time I made a few small changes in my sewing room.  I gave my sewing room and good and proper cleaning.  Dust is a big problem, especially this time of year.  So I cleaned out every little corner, and that was when I decided to move my fabrics from my fabric shelf to large drawers.

     

I am glad I decided to place the fabrics inside these large drawers, you will not believe how much sun damage my fabrics have because of it.... not to mention the dust.  It sure looked pretty on the shelf but it was NOT the best way to keep my fabrics clean and safe from damamge!

I don't have the most practical sewing room regarding storage and I have to make do with what I have, wall space is very limited so this tiny piece of wall space is all I have to personalize my room a bit.

New WIP - Ribbon Box Quilt



I've had these fabrics in my stash for almost a year now, waiting for the right project to come along.  It has been a while, but I think I finally found a pattern that I really like.  It was especially hard not to start cutting into them once I got them, but I am so glad I kept it aside ...

Ribbon Box Quilt by Michelle Engel Bencsko
The prints are so pretty I just had to decide on something that would really show them off.  Some of the prints are quite large and covers large spaces, so to use it in a quilt that uses small or smaller pieces would not be sensible.  

So I found this Ribbon Box Quilt pattern by Michelle Engel Bencsko on Cloud9Fabrics, and I think it was the perfect choice for my fabric bundle.

I am pleased with the way it looks so far, and I love that it comes together so fast.  I will have a finished quilt top in no time...

Guest Host for Anything Goes Mondays - Paula from The Sassy Quilter

http://www.sassyquilter.com/

Hi there! Paula here from over at The Sassy Quilter. I am super excited to be guest hosting the Anything Goes Linky Party today. I have been quilting for over 8 years now and blogging for about a year and a half. I am currently trying to save the world! ....one quilt at a time that is. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it:)

I love quilting and sharing this fabulous craft with anyone who is willing to learn. Currently I am working on the Aviatrix Medallion Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman.

This is a new one for me, never done a medallion style quilt before. It's a whole lot of cutting and piecing, but totally worth it seeing it come to life!

So head on over for a visit and link up all your quilty fabulous-ness and I will tell you a little more about myself!
