Custom Closet Shelves

For years I have wanted custom shelving to store my quilting fabrics and supplies. I never could get them since we moved alot due to my husband being in the military

A bit over q year ago, we purchased our first house and my dream of custom shelves became a reality. First, we removed the carpet in the study and replaced it with that matched the rest of the house. This took a while since the tile was on backorder due to the pandemic starting up. Once the tile was completed, it was time to plan the shelves. Luckily, my awesome father-in-law does this for a living. We ordered the pieces for the shelves and once they finally came in, they were put together and installed over several weekends.

COVID made it where it took awhile for it to come to fruition, but finally, the shelves were completed.

Looking into the closet from the room.

A lot is going on here. The blue totes on the very top are completed quilts organized by theme. The clear plastic totes are larger projects that have been started. The black boxes are smaller projects/more recent projects that have been started. Above the boxes is some yardage.

This section is for my paper crafts and my massive amounts of cardstock.

These 8 totes each hold multiple ziploc bags of projects waiting to start. I may or may not have a problem. At least I have enough fabric for a while!

Drawers, left of center

These drawers hold various items. They hold my precuts, my pens and markers for paper crafts, etc.

This is most of my yardage. There is no rhyme or reason to the order right now, I was just getting it put our and have not organized it yet.

These are my smaller projects. Eventually I will make some better labels for the boxes to stick in the slots, but for now the sticky strip works.

This is the rest of my yardage including my large bolts of Bella solids.

Lastly, these totes are my quilt tops awaiting to be quilted. Like I said. I have a problem. At least I won’t run out of something to work on.

Some Fabric Therapy

Lisa Bongean of Primative Gatherings is hosting a sew-along to benefit Hogs for Heroes. I had to sew along with them. I have been fighting purchasing more fabric unless it is to finish a quilt or that goes with something I have already purchased.

This one called to me. Plain and simple. I purchased the large fat quarter bundle and cleared the decks to start work on this one.

If you want to join in, head on over to Lisa Bongean’s blog. The blocks are free, but she does ask for a donation to support Hogs for Heroes. Her goal is to raise $25K, to get one Hog, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if she could get double that?

A Very Coriander Christmas… catching up

I spent this past week catching up with some of the block of the months that I have been a little behind in. One of them was A Very Coriander Christmas. I completed blocks 4 & 5. Block 6 will probably be mailed out this week.

Faux pleated pillows

When The Fat Quarter Shop released this free video tutorial a few months ago, I knew I wanted to make it. I was not sure from which fabric line, but I loved how it looked.

Then Chill by Zen Chic came out. I loved the rich purples.

Faux Pleated Pillows

I debated whether I should make two that the strips were matching or two where they were mixed up. In the end. My OCD won out, and I matched the strips.

This was such easy project and I look forward to making more in different fabrics.

Infinity Scarves

Now that they have all been gifted, I can now share these.

Cuddle Infinity Scarves

I made several of these scarves for Christmas presents. These are so soft and warm. Though we don’t get too many cold days in Texas, they will be perfect for when we do.
