Occasionally my quilting studio gets really messy and things are hard to find.  Occasionally is probably not quite the proper term, since this happens frequently.
I have a peg board that my husband put up for me years ago that has worked very well, but on a trip to a local hardware store I discovered lots more possibilities of improving that storage space. 
Hooks now come in longer versions and those little blue baskets are really handy.  I did a complete overhaul of that space and was able to rid myself of lots of clutter on my cutting table.  
On Mother's Day one of my daughters gave me this metal basket with candles and pretty kitchen tools in the divided areas.  Hmmmm, I thought the perfect area to toss all those odds and ends into it and get them at least in one area.  I think I need another to replace that plastic storage bin that houses my starch, Best Press, and Downy Wrinkle Release spray.  By the way that Downy works great for releasing that fold lines in fabric.  I still have a bit more reorganization to do on this work area, but things are better. 
With things cleaned up a bit I finally finished off the last four runners for my guild's quilt show Boutique.  These two used up the last of my Valentine fabric scraps.
I love this binding for them.  

And this one of two runners made from fabric leftovers from a number of years ago.  Nice to get this done and out of my stash, makes room for more new things in the future.  


  1. I love your peg board, I keep thinking I need to do that, but I don't have much wall space, too many bookcases holding fabric...hehehe

  2. Yes, I love my pegboard wall, too! Thanks for the tip about Downy Wrinkle Release. Sometimes reorganizing our creative workspace is just what we need to get all the good ideas flowing again. :-)

  3. I've never heard of the Downy Wrinkle Release, but can certainly use it! I love your pegboard, too - so handy.

  4. I am nearly done with my Studio reorganization too. Love the peg board idea...thanks for sharing.

  5. Hi,
    Great use of your space. Love the peg board.
    Have a great day!

  6. It's always fun to give our sewing rooms a little face lift! I will have to look for the Downy Wrinkle Release, I have never heard of it, thanks for the tip.

  7. It's always nice to finish up those UFOs! Your pegboard looks perfect.
