More from the Milky Way

I made another Milky Way block. I have decided that I am going to make one in each color of the rainbow (give or take) and then put them together in a rainbow sort of order. I know, very technical and thought out :)
I have 99% of my sorting and folding done. And that makes me so happy. I now have space for more (cause I really need more, right?) and I can see everything that I have.

Milky Way blocks...kinda

I am still working on sorting and folding my entire fabric stash and somewhere along the way I have also been working on a couple blocks. I found a copy of the Milky Way quilt pattern and after looking it over I decided I did not like the size of the stars. Mostly because I have an insane number of 6 1/2 inch squares cut and stashed in my closet. So I tried my hand at adjusting the size of the required pieces for this quilt and it turns out that I kinda like it and I kinda want to make a quilt with the Milky Way stars in blocks instead of the traditional way. (cause I am weird like that....)
So here are the first two blocks that I have finished. I am going to put sashing in between them and try to make it a bit of a scrappy rainbow maybe. We'll see....

New Years organization

When I unpacked everything in our new place I set aside all the space on these shelves for my fabrics. Well I never really got around to making them neat other than sort them by color. So I have started folding everything larger than 3/4 yard so that they will fit neatly on each shelf. And so far it looks so much better!
As you can see from the top left corner compared to the rest ;)
Now I just need to get the rest done!
