Thoughtful Spot

Here it is all tidy and ready for sewing. – my sewing room.  This picture was taken during one of our recent storms and so the light is a bit low, but I think you can see the space pretty well.

IMG_room10001The goal was to make the work area as efficient as possible.  I have the iron and board to the left for instant pressing.  I love that.  Each project has its own basket so that I don’t misplace anything.  Some baskets are simply fabrics that I think look great together, but are awaiting the right pattern or project. 

IMG_room20001Here’s a closeup of the sewing table.  On the left is a roatary mat and a basket with triangles and other cutting rulers. 

IMG_room30001This is my ‘design wall’ which is just a piece of batting.  I don’t love it here, and it’s pretty small, but it’s still reallly helpful.  These here are two quilts I’m working on, one is Hop, Skip & Jump quilt, and the other is my own design for a very dear friend. 


Below is the new cutting table which folds down.  I really like it! The basket holds all of my ‘bee business’ including postage, recently received blocks and things to mail out.  To the right…new fabrics.  Lately, I’ve really been drawn to Kaffe Fassett.

    I LOVE your room!! Especially the ironing station. I am constantly getting up to go iron my pieces. I tell myself that I get plenty of exercise that way while I sew..hee hee :) Fab room and amazing quilts!!

    Just fabulous! I love the cutting table that folds down (great idea) and the ironing station so handy to the machine. I hope to someday have a quilting space of my own, and this one is just lovely — and so functional.

    Very cute sewing room and so organized. My room isn’t organized because I’m alaways dragging everything out to look at it.

    Lovely space! I wish I was as neat and tidy as you are… my studio usually looks like a tornado visited :) I used to have my studio in the guest room too hehe

    It’s always good to see other work spaces and get ideas on better storage. Love the quilt on the bed, it’s beautiful.

    I really like your sewing space. I really enjoy having an ironing board right next to my dining room table where I sew. When I get a “room of my own”, I’m going to try and incorporate a iron off to the right and a spot for cutting off to the left.

    How do you stay so organized? I find sewing to be messy!

    What a lovely workspace, and I love the tiny chairs, too! Very clever to use one as a shelf for your little plant. :)
