T-shirt quilt

Finally I am moving the T-shirts to the design wall.
3 more to shadow. 
Shadowed T-shirts and then I start adding the green background to lay it all out.
I'm not sure how I'm actually going to get these in place, but there will background of green around the shirts so they look like they are floating.
It feels good to get going on it.

Memory quilt

The memory quilt is in top form.
Debating on the need for a border.
I'll bind it in pink.
It is probably big enough.

continuing on

OK, so I have the Prairie Moon Challenge to clean out my notions.
My 4 drawers of "stuff" was hard to find things in.
The top drawer was OK, but the rest, oh my.
I started on it and decided to move ribbons to one drawer instead of 2.
This is the mess I made after I've cleaned up lots.
I still need to figure out where everything is going. 
I'm putting the memory quilt together! 
Two columns down and two more to go.

I hope to get things done soon.

Studio organizing

Did get my sewing area cleaned up some.
It will always need something, but it feels good to have it neater.

This week is to 

Organize your notions

These 4 drawers are a mess.

Tried to clean then last week, but was not able to get them done

So, I'll work on them this week.

mid week matters

Midweek matters is a fun place for inspiration
I finished the pillow covers for the Equessense camp project.
The kiddos will make their own garden picture with crayons and we will iron them to make them permanent.
I'll also have extra muslin to them to work with so I can do a quilt for Equessense. 
T-shirt quilt waiting patiently. 
One more row to put the blocks together and then make the center.
After that I need to determine if I want the pink for a border or something.
