Quilt flimsy

yay - I finished off the Flaming Night quilt top 2 days ago.  I have made a matching laundry bag and yesterday I was busy piecing the left over fabrics into larger sections to put together for the backing.  This quilt is destined for Aussie Hero Quilts.  I want to quilt this one myself.  I ahve ideas blooming in myhead for more quilts for them.  Those I will just do the tops and send them off to Jan-Maree to be finished off.  I might even see if they can be sent back to me after being quilted for binding, labelling and subsequent send off to their new owers.

I also have set aside some fabrics for more laundry bags for Aussie Heroes.  Some are an 'old' single bed flat sheet, some are fabric that I bought for a specific purpose that no longer exists.

I did a bit more sorting and labelling of the tubs in the craft room yesterday.  Boy do I have a lot of pink and blue fabric!!  They take up half a 55 litre tub each.  Oh and there is a heap of white fabrics too - plain white, white on white print, soft prints on white background - nearly enough to make a whole tub just by themelves.

I have yet to find a home for the purple fabrics - they are still in a bag on the floor.  And the desk is a mess.  I really need to fix that.  As it is I have very little space to work at.  Boy do I envy those who have large studios with a place for everything.  No stacks of books on the floor piled up with bags of fabric.  I have even oozed into my son's room since he is not using at the moment.  His room wasn't neat and tidy before that to start with - now it's just that bit worse.

I found a couple of 'old' plain white sheets too.  I would love to have a go at dyeing them.  Spotlight has a tie dye kit on sale - guess where I'm going later today....

  1. Have you tried out your tie dye kit yet? Can't wait to see what you get done with it.
