I have bad knees and a bad back so I no longer can stand up to cut pieces for my quilts. I had a really nice cutting table. It was actually a wood rolling kitchen island piece. I gave it to my daughter for her kitchen. Now I cut on a small table right beside the sewing machine. I have the ironing pad on a folding table to the right of the sewing machine and the cutting table to the left. This makes a U shape. It works well for me. If I need to cut something big, I take a rotary cutting board to my kitchen counter and do it there. The bad thing about having to work at a small, low table is that my fabric piles up on the floor and makes a mess. I just deal with it and move on. After I finish the straightening up process, I will photograph the whole room. It will never be the neatest room in the world but it works for me.
Look at the basket I found at a thrift store. I was looking for a low- sided basket for my growing pincushion collection. I did find one but also came across this. The size of this basket just begged for it to be filled with quilts. I think I can find one or two to fill it up.
The last picture is of a quilt top I finished last night. I made a duplicate one this morning. The tops will go to two sisters who do the finishing work. Esther and Janet are members of a quilt guild that I belonged to for many years. The guild makes crib quilts as a charity project. Ester and Janet have done the sashings and tying of many, many of the quilts. Sometimes other members do part of the finishing work. I remember when the guild reached 2000 finished quilts and that was a long time ago. I don't know how many total have been donated. Most of the quilts are made from nine patch blocks. I like to put extra work into some of the ones I make. I have a bunch of shabby chic type fabrics that I want to use up. The baskets are fused to the background. My friend, Karen has been buttonhole stitching them for me.
