Here’s what I’ve been doing in my quilting room:
These purple squares have been lying around ever since I made my very first quilt, a very, very long time ago, and after watching about 20 episodes in a row of TV shows about hoarding, in which many hoarders come to very bad ends, I’ve realized that these purple squares (and a lot of other stuff) HAVE. TO. GO.
So I’m making these squares into a purple quilt. Never mind that hoarders always have grand plans for all the stuff they have piled all over everything. My plans are really going to happen! They are happening right now!
Not that I’m worried about being a hoarder. (No! Of course I’m not a hoarder!) But I do have more fabric than I can fit in my sewing room in any organized fashion. And since my sewing room used to be a pretty spacious two-car garage, that is a somewhat sobering thought. So I’m making a super-extra-double-serious commitment to using up my fabric without buying anything new until I don’t have any piles left. Unless I see something I really HAVE to have.
I’m also making this braid quilt in the same “use it up” mood. I have carefully edited this photo to crop out all the various piles of different things that are heaped on or behind my sewing table. Because if you can’t see them in the photo, they don’t exist.
