“Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.” ― Willa Cather, My Ántonia
I have not been quilting so much, but I've been sorting and organizing material. It warmed me right up to iron all that material. New storage bins inspire me, so I bought some color coded bins and filled them with that specific color or something close. How satisfying to see the material folded and put in a bin where I could find it more again easily.
I discovered that I don't have much red or white material. I then counted and found that I have almost 100 fat quarters, including the Christmas fat quarters. I have to say that I have neglected my
stash collection far too long and now I am getting ready for my six more weeks of quilting.
I even started reading the bias edges as I ironed.
|I forgot that I bought this panel. I love the covered bridges.|
|This was a piece left over from a quilt for my granddaughter. Sorting material takes you down memory lane.|
This bias edge kind of describes how I am feeling right now. Trying to get through the rest of the winter on a "Wing and a Prayer."
