I finally found a source for all the plastic baskets I needed so I could work on organizing my fabric closet! I've wanted to do this for some time, but didn't really want to have stacking baskets. Once I got used to the idea, the next problem was finding enough of them! I had to make a couple trips, but I finally gathered enough to get most of my closet done. I still need a few more to do the Christmas fabric, but the rest is sorted, culled and basketed!

Much nicer, right!
We drove up to see our daughter in Eugene today and give her some encouragement. It was a lovely day for a drive and I got the rest of my Dresden Plate blocks appliqued on the way home - I'll add the centers soon and give you a peek. I'm excited to get this top done by the end of the week! This one will be hand quilted with the queen size wool batt I bought this summer, I think. I might give my husband the choice - I have three quilts in the same pattern and plan to keep one for myself.
I hope to finish the pattern up this week as well. It's a great beginners sampler quilt that teaches a variety of techniques...I just have to come up with a name. Sometimes that is the hardest part! Maybe I'll put a picture up on Instagram and Facebook and see if I get any good ideas.
In fact, here is the EQ7 version of the quilt design in brights. What do you think would be a good name for this pattern?
