Rearrange and Red

12 Jan

So, I finally – finally! – finished those red strip blocks for the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt! YAY!

Orca Bay Mystery Winter 2011 - Red Strip Blocks

This is 64 blocks, all strip-pieced, and then cut in half and trimmed into these neat triangles. I now have to add the wing triangles to these, but after that I can start sewing the rows of the quilt together. So excited!

And just to show that I haven’t been idle, I also rearranged my craft room.

Grandpa's Shelves

My grandfather made the shelves in the background. I’ve had them for a very long time and they are very precious to me. You can also see the zig-zag formation of my cutting table, sewing table and computer desk.

Tool Board

The tool board is also special to me because my stepfather made it and my little sister helped to paint it. They painted it in my favorite color – blue. I have to say that one thing I love about my craft room is that it also contains objects made by family and friends that are very special to me.

The Design Wall

And the reason for all the rearranging – The Design Wall! You can see all my Ohio Star blocks for the Orca Bay Mystery and also a few of my Bow Tie blocks for the Bow Tie Challenge.  My ironing board and lamp are temporarily over in that corner – but they will need a more permanent home (and a new ironing board cover!).

It’s been a busy day/night, but a good one!
