Do you wash your fabric before using it? I know a lot of people don’t, but I always wash my fabric as soon as I buy it.
Yesterday I went fabric shopping with a friend, and bought some beautiful fabric at Cutting Cloth in Fairfield. It is a gorgeous shop and I was only planning to buy a few things, but I walked out with two bags of fabric, and a new quilt idea percolating.
I have washed all my new purchases, and now they are waiting in a giant mound to be ironed.
So this is what my personal sewing area looks like. I always have several projects on the go at once. You can see on my design wall a young girl’s quilt I am making for a family member as a Christmas present.
My ironing board really needs a new cover. It is so bad my husband commented on it recently. I really would like a new ironing board as this one is very old and on the small side. My iron is also very old, but I like a plain iron, and this one works perfectly.
