1st, this fabulous base for my ironing board cover:
I have had this fab cover for a while, which is great to iron yardage on, but it was sitting on my wobbly, no-storage, regular ironing board. This is a "kitchen shelf" that works perfectly (at least it does now that my handy husband sawed an inch off the top)! All of my current projects are in the clear boxes, with my 'tops to quilt' and 'table toppers' stored on the lower shelf. I had to steal a lamp from upstairs to make it perfect - now, lots of light!
This was a "kitchen island" at IKEA. Now I have plenty of room to cut my fabric (so I can sew it all together again). I can sit and make labels or draft blocks too.
On the other side:
In case you're wondering about scraps, etc. I have two "under bed" storage bins that I store under my big quilting machine - one for scraps and the other for backing fabrics.
Now, the three-day quilt marathon begins with 28 of my closest quilting buddies coming over in the morning to sew!
