Flying Geese Finish!!

I finished my first quilt of the year!! Actually this is the first quilt I have made in two years ...and before that who knows how long.

I enjoyed sewing this quilt so much. I bought the fabric around 7 years ago and it just sat ...waiting for me.

The quilting on it is pretty basic ...I still don't have a darning foot for my machine so it's straight quilting with the walking foot.

I have two simple projects to do and then I'll take something else of my UFO pile. Who knows, maybe someday I won't have any UFO's ...nah, I doubt it.

One of the things missing from my new sewing room was a place to store my fabrics. I wanted a small dresser and last Tuesday I found it. I spent a little while this morning filling it up. Now they are nice and neat and hopefully I can work at emptying it out I can make room for new fabrics!!

Here's the bottom drawer filled with some fabric.

I set them on their side so I can see what I have without having to rifle through everything.

The room is really coming along ...although I think I'm going to have to rearrange it a bit for a better work flow.

Oh, what a pretty quilt! And I love the idea of using a dresser to store fabric...gosh, it's embarrassing to say, but I'd need a huge armoire to store my linen fabric!

Love your drawers...and you have the material in there sooooo nicely.

Your quilt is pretty wonderful as well..!!

Oh Pam, your quilt is beautiful!! I love how the colors go so well together.... will this go on your bed?
I have a dresser in my sewing room too. I keep larger pieces in the bottom drawer (for backing) and my cuts in the others.

Thanks for posting the pic! (and your geese look great)

I LOVE two color quilts and your flying geese quilt is gorgeous!

I bought a dresser just like yours for my oldest daughter almost 22 years ago. I found mine at a garage sale and my dad redid it for me. I still have it and it's a treasure.
