I love pretty storage. I guess that's because I have a lot of stuff and if it isn't stored well it is difficult to appreciate and enjoy that stuff. I found the perfect storage solution for my "sprigs" applique project at the Vera Bradley store. This is their Mini Hanging Organizer and it is just the right size to carry everything I need to take an applique block in progress with me everywhere. My silk thread, scissors, needle threader, a couple needles, my basting thread and some little applique pins are neatly stashed in the handy compartments. Then I can fold up the block in progress and put it on top and zip it closed.
It fits right into my purse and is ready for stitching no matter where I am. How do you like to organize your projects? I would love to see pictures.
I finished two more blocks while I was on the road the last couple of weeks. This red, yellow and green one is my favorite. That's because I am partial to those wonderful mid-19th century applique quilts in the same colors.
I like the way this brown fabric worked as stems in these two blocks. It's another Judie Rothermel fabric.
