In the House of a Quilter

I'm in the final throes of the assembly of my Dear Jane quilt top.
It's huge, so I'm doing the ironing downstairs on the big ironing board with the "real" iron as opposed to the mini iron in the sewing room.

At one point I left the room and when I returned I was struck by this.
Seriously. No staging.
Poetic, isn't it?

How many quilty projects do you spy?

Pin It!

I think I see 4 quilts a table runner and two pillows.. but I could be wrong. I am awestruck by Jane.. fantastic!

Leah said...

I count 5 quits in the room. Very cool. I really like your grandmother flower garden. It is so bright. I love it.

Leah said...

Hehe, Mommarock noticed the same thing as me. I was counting the table runner as a quilt, so we both have the same total. :)

Rachel Lynn said...

At least 5, but probably at least one of those pillows is quilty.

This is kinda what our dining room table looks like right now.

two pillows, table runner, and 4 quilts?
So colorful!! I am thinking of the grandmothers flower garden - haven't made one in years - which method are you using?

4 quilts, three pillows and a runner? What a beautiful picture!!!

Janet said...

I think eight. 3 pillows, 1 table runner,4 quilts. Do tell us though. They are all beautiful.

OK. So now I see how you can keep your sewing area so clean and well organized- you have moved everything to the living room and dining room.

I'm thinking six but there is probably more. What a great pic, don't you love when you happen upon a poetic scene like that?!! You Dear Jane is fabulous. I am still trying to finish mine, modified, not the whole thing, needs makeshift borders. Love your hexie too. BUSY GIRL!!!

What a gorgeous sight. Your Dear Jane looks amazing as do your hexagons. Love the colours and contrast. I need to work with white more often.

LOL! That is so cool and I'm in awe of how neat and tidy everything looks. :)

Looking at all those different projects, it is really evident what your "style" has been in recent years. I just love your palette!
