I thought it would be a good idea to start listing the various types of paper that people use when they are paper piecing.  Personally I prefer newsprint over anything else.  I bought a case from…Continue

My son Corey, who turned 42 on Tuesday, loves Star Wars although he was a bit disappointed in the latest movie.   It will feel so good to get your room organized.  Mine has started looking cluttered again, but I will whip it in to shape again tomorrow.

Yes, Janet, I plan to make a quilt for my grandson ... as well as pillowcases for him AND (believe it or not) his parents. LOL I will start on this project as SOON as I get my sewing room under control. Currently, the "room" is a total disaster. Yesterday I managed to get all the threads returned to their proper storage areas and fabric folded around foam core boards. I haven't put all that away yet. Today is another "sewing room cleaning adventure" ... putting fabric in proper places, filing paperwork and rearranging bookcases! Perhaps next week I'll be able to start on projects. :)

Debbie, are you going to make a quilt for your grandson out of the Star Wars fabrics?

Janet - "getting urges under control" and "persevered" just caught my funny bone. I've been trying to get my "fabric buying urges under control"; but, haven't "persevered". I found the new Star Wars fabrics ... just HAD to buy some of them. So, yes, to me, getting urges under control did strike me as funny. I need to quit going to quilt shops! LOL

That did sound funny didn't it?!  LOL  Good luck getting your room organized.  I feel so much better spending time in mine now that it is organized again.  Just hope I can keep it that way.

ROFL Janet - I'm glad you fought to get your urges under control! LOL That is TOO funny! Yes, I, too, would like to get my older projects finished this year. But, first, my sewing room needs to be organized. I am going to start this project tomorrow morning! Yea!

I love Ulas designs and really seriously considered printing off January's block, but I finally got my urges under control.  Wasn't easy, but I persevered!  LOL  I am doing the Craftsy 2016 BOM and figure that is enough as I really want to get my older projects finished.

Thank you for the information and web site, Debra! January's block is beautiful!

Comment by Debra Mathews on January 11, 2016 at 5:57am

I found a paper pieced BOM on a web site called Ulas Quiltsite. It looks like stained glass. Very pretty. January is free until the end of the month.

Thank you Janet! And, I hope your Christmas was happy, too. I also hope the New Year is prosperous and happy!
