Quilts = Priceless

Hello!

Here is an update on the Cathedral Windows doll quit.  I try to get a little done here and there.  I've really enjoyed this process.


My moving date is finally about 1 week away!  Since I consider my quilts priceless, I've moved them all to a friends' house.

I didn't count, but Margaret is a trusted and dear friend and is so generous to offer her home as a storage for them.

I stacked them up and wrapped them with sheets.


This is a big bundle~


Here they are at Margarets house.  bye quilts.....see you in July.

On the home front, the sewing room is closed for business.  I have pre-organized everything for the packers so I'll know what is where.


It was a sad day when I took down the design wall.  I'll be replacing it and maybe I'll do a tutorial. It is so easy to make.


Sad....I'll never have another sewing room like this one.


On Sunday I celebrated the end of my Jubilee year.  I am grateful to my friends and family for making it a special day. 

I want to share this great gift that I received.  (I actually got 2 from different people....guess they know me :)


This is an icicle that you freeze and insert into a bottle of wine to keep it perfectly chilled.  It can also be used to quick chill red to the perfect temperature.

Brilliant! 

I don't know when I'll be back, but thank you all for the support during this move.  I hope to come back with fun and inspiration from Connecticut.  In the meantime, happy sewing!

  4. Cathedral Window just sparkles! Good luck with your move- it looks as if you have kept on top of the organizing. Oh yes, that sewing room is beyond lovely! But you're taking the creative spark that makes it work with you, so no worries.

  5. It must have been a wrench to walk away from all your fab quilts for weeks; what a happy reunion you'll have in July!

    Best of luck to you as the moving date arrives. Then the settling in begins...may you find some awesome quilt buddies right off. (Really, aren't they more important than finding a doctor or dentist??)

  7. It's all good - may you bloom and flourish in your new home. Maybe a doll quilt is the answer for my Cathedral Window quilt, I started it in 1992!! So sad that I have so many ufo's.

  12. Your Cathedral Window quilt is so very pretty! Comforting to know your quilts are in a safe place. I feel for you in the loss of your wonderful sewing room. I know you will continue to make fabulous quilts from your new place and I can't wait to see them as they progress :0) I hope your transition to Connecticut goes well. I'll be thinking about you.

  13. LOVE your itty-bitty Cathedral Windows! That should be one of the first things you hang to christen your new sewing room! : )
    Oh, I wish you well with your move. (You did have a pretty sweet sewing room set-up, didn't you?)

  15. I love Connecticut and hope you do too. My sister lived there for 18 years and is moving back this summer. I can't wait to start visiting her there! The state certainly provides you with some good quilt weather.

  19. Wishing you the very best in your new home. Hope time flies before you are sewing again. Your Cathedral Window is lovely. That is the first pattern I remember thinking that I would like to make. A high school boyfriend's grandma made one, and I fell in love with it. A dolly quilt is such a smart idea.

  24. Best of luck with your move. I just moved 3 months ago and am still mourning the loss of my 3 room sewing suite. Still working on setting up my new space. Hope all goes well for you and you enjoy your new home.

  26. Your cathedral windows quilt is wonderful - glad you have some hand work during this slightly stressful time. Can't wait to see your new home. The corksickle is awesome - I need to look for one of those. Take care Barb, and we'll see you when we see you!

  28. Oh I do need some design wall ideas, I just moved too and where I had 24 feet of wall space in NY my sewing room here has slant ceilings and no space for a wall design board....ugh I've got to make some freestanding or to lean against a desk. We downsized and I should have given away even more stuff than I did, much of it has no place to go so it is still in packing boxes! Yes, I moved my quilts in the car :0).

    Safe move, happy unpacking and New Home too.
