I have been working several hours a day I guess on the X quilt since Saturday I guess or maybe it was Friday that I started to cut up the fabric. It is moving along fairly nicely – the tape idea is working out really well for keeping the pieces lined up – one problem only that I have found with it is that the tape doesn’t always stick really well when taking off the design wall, I have had to press the tape back on some pieces as I am removing from the design wall.
As you can see more than half way finished with this part of the quilt! there is a border for this quilt as well – I believe you just call the piano keyboard?
Last week at Wal-Mart I found a nice little plastic box to keep my threads and stitching supplies in for the Red and Green Applique quilt. I normally use little cosmetic bags or something along that line but when I saw this – I knew it was for me – and it was under $5.00 I believe always a nice bargain. It is small and flat – as you can see you can line up thread on one side and tools on the other – or all thread in the one I am currently using and tools in the other one.
Clip together and you are set.
Or just the one I am using at this time:
This cute little set up goes by the name “snapware” and I found it in the area near the luggage where the large containers are stored – they have some small pieces there as well – I thought I would find it near the kitchen items but no – over by the luggage. It you have The Container Store I bet you can find one there also or something like it.
