My quilt room before and afters

When my son was moved into the guest room I was kicked out of that space into the basement. 

I just dumped things down here and worked around it for a while- but  I havent quilted for a while. 

Then I got the news that a good friend was finally pregnant with #2. That gave me the kick in the but to get going on cleaning things up. 

This is as clean as I am likely to get in anytime soon so I got some pictures. 

(this is VERY picture heavy!!)

after- rack

before- desk
I got a shelf hung up for more storage space. The green thing has my scrapbooking stuff in it. 
after- desk
So I cleaned things up. I folded my fabric up on magazine size comic book inserts

I got this at Walmart. its on wheels and the multitude of drawers is nice.

I hung up this up and hung up some of my things :)

My fabric all folded up. This is my 1/2 yardage or more.  The smaller ones are in bins on the wire shelf. 
 The drawers put away. 

My kids are contained
Zeke asked to join Abigail in the play pen. 

Then I got my hubby to take some "in action" shots.
from his desk

Rock on!

Happy Quilting everyone!

Great new space. I find it interesting that quilters are often paper crafters too. I also create scrap book pages and Art journal too but as I have one table I need to clear one craft away before I do next as I am a very messy paper crafter with a spray ink obsession.

thank you everyone!

+sally- i did scrapbooking before learning how to quilt. I mostly use it to make cards

Love your space I am going to snag your hanging of scissors and tools idea. Right now keep them and my rotary cutter in their gingher tins. I already hang my rulers on my hobby table.

Wow Debbie, you are organised!! Love how you made mini bolts for your fabric, that's such a good idea. I think the best bit of your organisation though are your kids in the playpen - everything has its place ;D

Very nice, Debbie. You've got it all organized, which is what I'm trying to do now. Even though I have my house to myself, I only use my smallest bedroom as my sewing room, so not as much space as I'd like. Eventually, I'll do the basement thing...
