One of my summer projects was to straighten my quilt closet. Saturday morning I decided to straighten the closet to make it easier for those friends to take quilts out (joking of course). This is what the closet looked like when I started, I had to shove quilts back on the floor to get the door open. I have been a slob at putting them away!
After several hours this is the finished closet. Guess how many quilts are in there? Seriously, guess! Keep in mind I went through a mini phase and I have MANY wallhangings. The floor is holding mostly larger quilts with Heart themed quilted on the far right (short pile). The next shelf up holds 2 1/2 piles of Christmas quilts and 2 piles of fallish quilts. The next shelf up is mostly wallhanging and smaller with some throw size quilts including Easter. My patriotic quilts are out right now. I will say in addition to the quilts in the closet I counted all the quilts in my house not in the closet. There are 69 more!!! YIKES! I give away a LOT of quilts too!
I finally got all my Canyon Dance blocks squared up. My design wall isn't big enough! I didn't get a picture before I started auditioning possible sashing strips (or not), see below for options. I just put a few pieces of each color on the wall. They will finish at 1" IF I decide to use sashing!
Which is your favorite? This is the original one I made. If I use sashing I will have 20 extra blocks and can make a quilt for a Care Center resident.
Linking up with Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for Design Wall Monday.
