Lookie, Lookie!

... a clean cutting table!

It all started with two rolls of 2-1/2" strips that exploded on my sewing table after I pulled a couple of strips out for a project.  It was very tempting to shove them back into a drawer, but I could see possibilities of merging the two rolls into 4-patches.

Some were paired with white for Candy Dish.  All the blocks and rows are made and they are waiting for a clean space on the sewing table to work with the larger pieces. 

Some light print strips were paired with medium solids and worked into this little crib top. 2.5 yds

More of the medium-darks were paired into random 4-patches for "Ginger Belle" (still trying to come up with my own name for this one).  All the star blocks are made and one of the chain blocks is done.

So, for a brief instant the cutting table is clear....

Also back for crib quilt was made.  1.5 yds

  1. Congrats on your usage and your clean cutting table! I can't even remember when my cutting table was last clean....
    Please give us a blog-tour of your studio when you get a chance - I love to see everyone else's sewing space.

    1. More views of my studio can be seen in the June 6-8, 2014 posts. Nothing has been as clean since!

  2. Now that it is clean, are you starting on a new project? That is the way it works for me. I like how each quilt looks so different while each using a four patch.

    1. As a matter of fact, I've been cutting HSTs for a new project that will be my leader/ender project while I clean up a few other loose ends.

  3. I like your crib quilt and your clean cutting table. Can't remember when my table was ever clean - maybe when it first took up residence in my sewing room!
