In preparation for Summerfest I'm in the midst of inventory counting, reorganizing the studio and trying to dedicate the time to complete any sewing projects I've left in that "half way finished stage" which I seem to do way too often. Bad habit. Over the weekend I found the beginnings of a ticker tape quilt rolled up on a shelf, seems I vacated it in the sandwich stage :) I had the quilt batting, fleece and quilt top fabric pinned together and in the middle a handful of fabrics picked out, some cut into squares. I'm guessing I started this...

Had an itch to make another ticker tape quilt... this time around on a much smaller scale. And I must say it was much easier to maneuver on my machine and table. A bright mix of fun scraps...turned into a dollie size quilt: finished measurement approx. 21"x24" front side a quilters 100% cotton- a white on white scroll mini print backside a pale yellow quilters flannel, cream thread top and bobbin I've got another one in the making using a different color combo. These are a fun way to utilize scrap fabrics. I'm off to bed earlier than usual tonight......

And the sewing continues... I often get these wild ideas in my head right as I'm about to fall asleep at night. Then if I'm lucky enough to remember when I wake I sketch it out in one of my journals.

Although I'll admit still feeling under the weather, I did have...

keeping it real...this is what my studio floor really looks like A LOT of the time... and all the time I spend day dreaming about installing a new floor in my studio...I think not. The practical side of me, really likes having a concrete floor. I just cut away...or paint away, worry free of the mess I make. That's an ideal studio floor-in my opinion. Although, when it gets to this stage it's just too much of a mess and my brain can't seem to think straight, so I stop and do a maintenance sweep... I started this baby quilt last week...
