Chanukah has come and gone. So while most of you are getting ready for Christmas, I have some extra time on my hands. I thought I would put together a list of the top 10 things I use most often as a quilter and designer, and give you a peek at my workspace.
(As much as I tried to prioritize my list, it's really not in order.)
Are there any tools I missed?
Is there something indispensable or a favorite of yours that is not included. Please do share.
Wishing you health and happiness in the New Year.
10. Design Wall
|Used for designing as well as my filing system.|
9. Hand Sewing Needles
|Lots of assorted needles for lots of different threads.|
|Found in the grocery store with many quilty uses.|
7. Journal - I keep a journal that includes everything from ideas, thoughts, sketches and inspiration. I look for the ones that are blank on one side for sketching and with lines on the other side writing.
|Great personal reference.|
|An essential design aid for me.|
|I use all types of threads as long as I can put it through a needle.|
|This is my candy.|
|How did we live without them?|
2A. Sewing Machine
|I'm a Bernina girl. I've tried others, but ....|
|Had to squeeze this in. I remember making a quilt composed of 4" squares in the early 1980's without one. I have to choose this as a tool that revolutionized quilting.|
1. Fabric Stash
|A quilter's palette.|
