Wow! That must have been an enormous job! (I'm curious about what you did for storage for the stuff that was there?) What a wonderful improvement. Bet you love those mats, too. :)

And I would love to be in the drawing.

What a difference a week makes! I like how you store customer quilts-you can see at a glance what's next up. I may try to incorporate that into my space. Beautiful fabrics- please enter me in your drawing!

Shannon said...

Your studio looks amazing! I always find it so satisfying to re-organize. I love the Ty Pennington bundle too - those are my colors!!! (even though I bought the spice colorway to go with the living room) Thanks for the celebratory giveaway!

Wow! What a gorgeous transformation! And definitely count me in for those yummy fabrics :-) Thank you, Jenny!

Great job utilizing your space. I especially liked the bags on the rod for your customer quilts, and your beautiful sewing table. I struggle with creative mess all the time, and know what a nice feeling it is to have it all in order. Congratulations, you have inspired me to tackle my big deep drawers full of mysteries. And, I would like to enter the drawing!

I hope you have treated yourself also after all that work. Your pictures inspire me. I feel the need to make a trip to Ikea and get a stash cabinet. I may be a beginner quilter but the stash is starting to take up space. I would love to add to my stash.

WOW, just cleaned my sewing room, 15'x22'. I thought I had a lot of stuff. Took me three and a half hours, and my back was killing me. You deserve a day at the spa being pampered for all you did. I would love to enter the give away. Beautiful fabrics.

I just found your blog and must say that I am very impressed with your beautiful quilts. Your "pit" is also amazing! I am trying to learn to quilt and it is a slow process, but I am enjoying myself. I don't have a blog, but I do love to blog hop. Keep up your beautiful work.

Pam said...

Karen said...

That's an impressive clean up. It really is inspiring and such a sense of achievement when it is done.

Turbo Jenny! Genious wrapping the "shoe" holder around the post. Way to use every inch of space! It looks great! I'd love to be in the drawing too.

Dinah said...

I'd love to be in the drawing! I always like to see how others organize their fabrics; I need improvement in this area! The fabrics in the drawing are lovely; I have sewn with greens many times but don't have any greys, and I love the combination! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

Marianne said...

I would love those fabrics, such beautiful colors. Love your studio, what is it about cleaning that makes you more creative? I do that with my sewing area, and all I want to do afterward is pull stuff out and make something new. Enjoy. Marianne

I just found your blog through Pleasant Home and I am LOVING your studio. I quilt in my basement dungeon as well. I've been ignoring the cancerous lesion of a mess that's been building up for over a year, and seeing your space has actually motivated me to clean it!

I love your quilting. Such an inspiration. I've been stuck in a rut of doing the same old designs over and over and its so nice to see something new.

How do you do everything with 5 kids?? I have four and I'm lucky if I can quilt an hour or two a day.
