Questions and answers...............

A few days ago a NO REPLY commenter asked if she was seeing real fabric swatches on my inventory cards.  She said that she would photocopy the fabric and paste the picture on and make a block with the scraps.  Well, the answer is yes, those are fabric scraps.  AND so are those scraps in both of those containers on the table.
AND seven of these 8 containers are Kaffe fabric............................................................
AND the rest of it is in this bin that sits under the end of the pool table.  That is why I'm using real fabric scraps on the inventory cards.




Question 2:  several people wanted to know how large the quilt was on the design wall in yesterday's post.  This post gave the full view and the dimensions. 
My other niece sent me a photo of some of the mug rugs I made that her mom gave her for Mother's Day.  The quilt on the couch is also one that I made.  It is a Many Trips Around the World made from directions in "Tradition With a Twist" by Blanche Young.   

This post has the photo her sister sent me of her mug rugs.

It's odd you mention Blanche Young today as I was just looking at her book these past few days. When I was packing I ran across her book and decided to look at it again

Your organizational skills are way above par! You actually DO the things that many of the rest of us dream about....AND you actually do use this fabric in ongoing quilts constantly. You are such an inspiration! I love your blog!!!

I am taking a lead from you Wanda - have begun going through my KF and PJ etc. fabrics. Starting with sorting my quarters I found heaps of fabrics I had forgotten about! Some of the very first produced by them, so pleased you posted about your organisation of your fabrics!

I thought of you when I was reading a Barbara Brackman blog posting (Barbara Brackman's Material Culture). She shows photos of fabric diaries from the old days - mainly because of a sad closing of a fabric museum. Your records could be important in years to come!

Love seeing the garden photos too.
Kind regards
