Here we go – you’re going to love this. I am probably the only one who truly understands the burden of having too much that has accumulated for 40 years of being in the quilt business. Wish you all lived close by so we could have a garage sale of fabric, patterns, books, etc, etc.
This two story garage was built about 20+ years ago and Connie moved her sewing room to the second story. When her boys were little she sewed in the house – first in the kitchen in the little closet under the stairs. Then they added a room off the kitchen so she could sew and still cook and take care of her family. Her boys have grown up with a quilting mess – they’re well rounded young men – ha!
Going up the steps is a quilt show in itself.
On Connie’s right is the bathroom – in the shower is stuff that is potentially half finished stuff to finish and sell at Junkin Gal.
The linen closet is more.
The pictures hanging in the bathroom have a theme of the Sacred Heart – these pictures are real treasures!
Outside the bathroom is a cupboard of fat quarters and in the shelves below is Jan Patek/Linda Brannock projects. The first picture is precuts.
This next picture is an overview so you will understand that I am going to move around the room to the right. The big cupboards serve as room dividers.
To the right the whole wall is shelves with books, pincushions, and other interesting “things”.
Against the adjoining wall is a rack of current Civil War fabrics.
Her sewing table sits to the left in the room, not against any wall.
On the back of her chair is Cobblestones made in Fig Tree fabrics.
Back to the wall is Linda Brannock’s Garden Girl hanging above the cutting table which is a kitchen island from IKEA. On the adjoining wall is the TV and more of the same.
On her design wall/divider is a new panel.
Connie likes to work on 3 or 4 projects at a time so she doesn’t get bored. Here are come of those projects including Bullseye. Hilary is peeking out, too.
Then comes the hideabed that she want outs of her space. And the green cupboard directly to the left. This line of cupboards backs up to the big cupboards I showed you first that are room dividers. I know this is difficult to imagine.
She wants to take this cupboard to the lake this summer – thanks, Roy!
Hanging over the next fabric cupboard is our pattern Spot. Under Spot is brushed cotton. Spot hangs over top to offer sun protection.
Next is brushed cotton.
This cupboard is Civil War and above on wall is wool rug hooking.
Next is punch needle.
This basket is Japanese fabric.
I realize now I should have drawn a simple floor plan for you to follow. I think I got lucky when I posted my sewing room because there were many pictures and it didn’t crash. I’m going to stop here and continue later this afternoon. Keep in mind that I can’t answer your questions about what’s the name of this quilt, this fabric, this cupboard because I probably don’t know.
