Organizing Tips

I was roaming through Target the other day (always a dangerous thing) and found this in the Bath section.  I am always looking for ideas to make my life easier in my quilt studio.  I don't have a lot of room on the right hand side of my machine and I have things that I like to get at easily.  They had black (shows too much dust), white (boring!), and this green (it's alright, I guess).  I would have liked to have pink or red.  I thought this would be a great idea.  What do you think?

Then in the same section I purchased a shower rod and hooks to hang things on the outside of my closet, since I have so much in the closet that there isn't any room to hang anything.  It's great for hanging those quilt tops I need to quilt.  I also am not sure how I will eventually use the hooks.  The bag on the right holds the bindings needed to finish some of those quilts.

I do not have any finished projects are even anything in progress to show because I am working diligently on a quilt for Jeremy for the store.  It will be a block of the month and I am not suppose to show you any of it till it is hanging in the store but it is absolutely beautiful.  These are the fabrics.  If it wasn't such a rush job it would be more fun to piece together.  There are 50 billion pieces and literally over 20 pages of instructions.  I'm on the last page, putting on the four, count them four!!!, borders, three of which are pieced.  I can hardly wait till it is done.  I was suppose to get it done YESTERDAY two weeks ago when I received it.  I hope to work on it today but I also have two of our grandchildren for three days.  Hopefully next week I can work on something completely different.

Cindy Cooksey came to our guild last night and her quilts were inspiring.  I just want to get into the studio and create!


  1. Love your organizing ideas. I like the green!

  2. Love the shower rod idea. That way the UFO tops won't let you forget about them!! Love that fabric - can't wait to see the finished product. Don't forget to make some time for yourself ....Linda

  3. Love the organizing ideas. If you don't like the color - can you find some paint that will work on the plates? Hope you dont mind if some of us copy your ideas.
