This is a "finish it up" post for the Sew Organized series I posted in the month of June. Although I still have a few odds and ends to finish up, I'm so much better organized than I ever have been in this space. I've received quite a few emails about my cutting table, and I did a little research. The piece is from Klaussner Home Furnishings under their William Mangum Carolina Preserves collection. I bought mine at High Desert Design & Home Furnishings in Mesquite, Nevada. Hope that information helps anyone looking for the same table.
After my organizing was finished up I had some rearranging to do...since some of the furniture was moved I had to change around several of the quilts. I was able to hang up my most recent mini quilt finishes, too!
My room is actually rather small--10 feet by 11 feet, yet I'm amazed at how roomy it seems to be now. We have a larger spare room that would have given me a lot more space, but the lighting isn't as good in that room, so I chose light over space...
I love having the little table next to my machine. I keep my most used items there and don't have to get up to get things like I used to.
The "Painted Ladies" quilt (pattern by Fig Tree & Company and pieced from my scrap bin) was moved over to the wall with the cutting table.
Here are the features I really love about the table. The end has amazing storage! I love the open shelving for fabric storage...
Each drawer holds files which hold all of my patterns...all perfectly organized now...finally!
And the top drawer is shallow but the perfect size to hold scissors, rotary cutters, and my most frequently used rulers.
These last two photos are just to "keep it real." I took these pictures really just for my own use, but I promised a few of you I'd share them at the end of the series. Part of this was the pre-Quilt Market sewing frenzy, but in reality it had been quite a mess for even longer.
It's a pretty good feeling to have it all finished up. Thanks so much to everyone who left comments and suggestions through this process!
Thanks for stopping by!
