Finding homes for quilts...

I may be back to more regular blogging! We squeezed in a visit with the Grandkids before school started back and enjoyed lots of the kid-friendly activities here in Greenville. The Zoo, the Children's Museum, SC Children's Theater and more provided some busy fun. We're also appreciating all the ice cream shops here in town!

I've finally started to focus on finding homes for all the finished quilts. Even after giving many away before moving, I ended up with 10-12 boxes of quilts that came with us. With few on beds and about 4 boxes full of quilts stored away in a closet, here's where you'll find the rest...

 My husband and I built this cabinet years ago and it ended up in the sewing room. It holds a lot of quilts and I've got it filled to the brim.

I've shared pictures of this piece before. It's from Crate and Barrel and we put it in the dining room. Now most people would probably fill it with dishes in a dining room, but I need quilt storage so my dining room has quilts.

And a basket of quilts in the family room. Perfect for an afternoon nap!

I don't think I've shared this beauty with you. It was made for me by my Redbird Bee sisters in St Louis as a going away gift. I love it and am getting ready to hang some of my cute minis up in the sewing room.

Speaking of the sewing room, it's starting to look organized. All the fabric is refolded and put away. Yay! I'm hoping to get my design wall up this week and be back in business!

I did get my #iheartb&cbeehive6 block done this weekend. It took a little more time than I anticipated, but I love how it turned out. May have to make more of these. The pattern is free at judymartin.com

I also finished up a binding last night and I hope to be back soon with more quilty pictures! Thanks for stopping by!
