    Thank you for the tutorial! I have Rosebuds Cottage on my desktop because I am always looking for ways to keep my stash organized. All those scraps need to be used wisely. Thanks again!

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I needed this tutorial. I am the most disorganized quilter. I beigin by organizing my material and when I begin piecing them together I get all messed up. I will try your method to try to get my things straight! I'll let you know how it goes.


    thanks for being on the blog hop! your tips are great!

    I try to organize, then drop manage to drop something. Or have to get up to cook something when husband sticks his head in my room and looks at his watch. ;o) Thanks for your hints!

    I love your store...and nice to see all the ideas you have on your blog.


    If you guys only knew ... on this particular quilt it seems like I've ripped (or miscut) as much as I've sewn straightforward. I am going to be so relieved to have the rows up off my floor with the borders sewn on. Whew!!

    Love these photographs of quilt projects in the making!


    It's great to see quilting techniques can be used with paper!

    Jennifer Grady

    That's a whole lot of sewing going on! Looks like fun.


    Your tips are great and really work. Being organized means more stitching and less time wasted and more quilts! June

    Great organization!!!! I'm going to give it a shot this week.


    Your tips are great...I'm sort of organized1!? One disaster was NOT taking the advice of a friend after I had blocks done for quilt top...she said to number them as I took them off the layout so I would know how to sew them together. I thought I could just pick them up and put them in the right order...WRONG I still haven't put the top together!


    I agree with you about being organized - it really does make for less ripping out of stitches!!

    Oh how hard I work to organize and stack my sewing--yet--this chick always manages to pick a set or two up wrong--good thing they invented seam rippers!!!!! Thanks for the help--I promise as a quilter to keep trying to do it right the first time!!!! Hugs, just, Di


    You are so organized! I have learned to keep all in the correct direction or -- mistakes happen. The other thing is to check your first one against the instructions or you will have all 48 or whaterer wrong!


    I do that TOO! Right now I'm chaining 32 log cabin blocks that have 19 logs in each. If I didn't have it all set up to just grab and sew, I don't know how many mistakes I'd make. As it is, I've made a couple anyway.

    Anything to make this repetitive stuff go faster is my motto. *S*

    I am also an OC when it comes to my quilting!LOL Is there any other way to be! That is quite a tease preview for the Quilts and More!


    Great tips!!! Thanks for posting.


    Thank you very much for your tips. I think I am anorganised. I like to see what others do!

    Greeting Guilitta


    I try so hard to be more organized.. but in the end I loose it

    Thank you for that! I thought I was the only one making piles the right way up for the machine so I could just keep going! It is nice to see how you are doing it!
