This chair sits in my studio. When I redid my sewing space several years ago, I got this chair because I thought I might sit in it to do hand sewing, or applique or just rest and watch tv. I have done none of those because this chair is usually buried (and I mean buried) under piles of fabric, projects, ironing, mending, you name it. Today I rescued it. I filed everything away, I did all the ironing and mending and for at least one day, it looks so pretty :). And you can actually see my Amy Butler quilt that I made specifically for this room!
On the other side of the room you might remember that a few weeks ago my cutting table looked like this.
Today it looks like this! Little happy dance. This took much longer than the chair as there were tons of little pieces I had pulled for my Celtic Solstice.
I won't show you the side of the room where the fabric is, that's still a work in progress :).
Yesterday I broke down and bought fabric for the borders of my Orca Bay. I am determined to finish my BH mystery quilts this year and not let them languish any longer. I found this black and white print. It's got a lot of movement in it, but I thought it looked like water and it kind of went with the quilt. It's pretty dark but I think it helps stop all the chaos going on in the center.
I really like it going both ways.
I went with a bright blue for the inner border as I thought the quilt has enough red in it. I do think it helps to pull the blue out. Here the black is going sideways.
Here it is running lengthwise. So my last decision is which way to run the squiggles. They each have their pros and cons. Any opinions out there??
Hope you had a productive Saturday. I just keep walking in my studio and smiling. I'm sure it won't take long for "creative clutter" to take over again, but for today it is clean and waiting for me to create.
