Scrappy Trip - completely addicting!

Wow - these Scrappy Trip quilt blocks go together quickly! I've already replaced my oversized blocks with better sized blocks over this weekend.

In between the slower hand stitching on the glamping quilt I pop over to the sewing machine to churn out another Scrappy Trip block.

Playing with the block placement has become a post-finish ritual as I turn and move each one to see the patterns emerge. (And the brain kicks in  - should this become a quilt top? A window panel? lap quilt? when my original intention is a quilt back!)

Working with so many fabrics has stressed my rudimentary fabric organization bin (above!).

An intervention was in order - and I admit to inspiration from Lynn Krawcyzk's recent studio/warehouse reinvention/declutter.

(You can read her blog series on the professional organization process here.)

After two trips to Target and an evening streaming Midsomer Murders on Netflix while playing with fabric...

Ta-dah! A new drawer tower with sorted and organized fabrics - far, far better than a laundry hamper and an undersized bin.

As always,
Thanks for stopping by,
See you next time!
