Its Quilt Quazy Queen Week

Yup, That's right.  It's Quilt Quazy Queen week, and today is my day.

Well, believe me....I am a Quazy Quilter!

I am one that everything has to be orderly and in its proper place.  The only time its messed up is when I am sewing.  At the end if each day, I put everything back till the next day.

Let me show you my room and how I keep things orderly.


My husband hung large white shelves all around my room.   I keep different items in each tote.   7 with Fat Quarters in,  one has small printed scraps, one with plain scraps, one with strips, another with squares, one with rectangles, 2 with assorted size Batiks. 

 Then I have 2 book cases, one wood and one Tuppermaid.  On the book shelves I keep my fabric assorted in stacks from 1/4 yard to 7 yards.

Also, on one shelf I have my magazines assorted by month and year.

I found 2 thread holders at a flea market last summer, for $1.00.  I couldn't believe it!  So I hung them together.

This is a corner desk we used to keep our computer on.  We no longer have our computer, we went to a lap too and our phones.  So the desk turned into my cutting table/design table/sewing table. 

In this basket I keep the fabric and designs of the project I want to do next.
Now, don't get me wrong, even though I keep things in order, I normally have 2 different projects going at once.  But keep them together.

  Such as one could be blocks, which I stack together neatly on my desk as I make them to put together. 

While another could be arranged on my design wall.  When I am working in my room I have it a mess, but I guarantee, at the end of the day all is put away till the next day.   Even my machine gets its cover on at the end if the day.

 I also will not start another project till one of these are completed.  

My partner in crime, taking a nap.  She loves being close to me, so she has a bed in almost every room of our house.  So no matter which room I am in, she goes to that bed, lol.
Now, I must say, I feel I am a very lucky quilter.  My husband purchased a long arm machine for me 3 years ago.  Not only that...Last summer he built onto our house making a room just for my machine.  He is just wonderful and supports my quilting 100%.  He is also very handy, when I say built my room, he did it ALL
 (except for some painting that I helped with)

My machine, which I love playing with!

We love going into thrift shoos and second hand stores.  (You never know what you can find.)  Last fall we stopped in this shop owned by a retired couple who bought furniture from estate sales.  He found this oak gun cabinet and said it would be perfect to display quilts.  He added some shelf's and put a board on top.  Perfect!

He even made me a quilt rack.  It will hold a quilt up to 98 inches long.  And check it out, he put my name in it!

Then he made a Spool holder to hold my larger spools of thread.
My son made me the shelf and stained it to match all the other woodwork.
Oh, and a large basket on the floor is to keep my pantographs in.

I also purchased 2 plastic drawer sets to put rulers, pins, small toppers, etc.

My toy machine collection on a shelf above French doors that lead into our Dining Room.

Another great find... This was a beat, large oval table with 3 chairs that we found for 
$ 20.00.  He cut it round, put an edge on it, sanded, stained and Wa Laa, I got the perfect table for my room.  I made chair pads and as you can see...Perfect!  (I tell you, this Quazy Quilting Queen is truly lucky to have such a wonderful man.)

Thank you Marian for all your hard work.  I must say, I am really enjoying seeing everyone's quilt rooms and am getting more ideas as to make mine better.
