I have a closet in the gym where I store some of my sewing/craft supplies. It has been very unorganized for a very long time. Finally I did something about it.

I pulled out all my quilt kits and laid them on the treadmill. Yes. I have alot. The prices were good so I bought. (I know...I know...that's a poor excuse...sort of embarrassing seeing all of these laid out and knowing I probably won't make all of them!)

While on my trip last week to Boise, I found these baskets at TJ Maxx (LOVE THAT STORE!). It was like a lightbulb went off and I got the idea to reorganize the closet and put my kits in these cute things.

Here's what the "neat" side of the closet looks like now. I, and the closet, feel so much better!

Jelly Roll Sampler Quiltalong almost done!

Have been working on my last blocks for the Sampler Quilt that you make from a jelly roll. It has been a fun online quilt-a-long! If you didn't play along, all the blocks and instructions are on Konda's blog. Just click the highlighted words above. I used Summer's Basket of Flowers by Moda to make all the blocks. Now to even up all the blocks and put it together! So nice to be able to use up an old jelly roll!

Apron BOM

Finished my July BOM today and decided to put them all on the design wall to see what they looked like. This is the LQS's block of the month. We could chose to make either an appliqued Apron quilt, an appliqued Western quilt or a regular pieced BOM in 2 different colorways. As you can see, I choose the Apron BOM. It will be interesting to see how it all comes together at the end of the year. You might be able to notice that there are 4 different sizes of blocks so far.

Nothing quilt related today

but wanted to post some pics of our lil' travels these past few days. The honey had a business meeting in Jackson so we headed up through our ol' stomping grounds.

Use to live here. Son had to jump the barb wire fence so he could get a picture standing by "the sign". Big Piney has this claim to fame. It really does get cold there.

Love the Tetons!

After the Honey's meeting, we headed to the cabin and everyone pitched in to finish this puzzle! Notice the extra piece.....ummmmm yeah.....

The Honey surprised me by buying a couple of flags to wave at the cabin. Not too sure about that one on the bottom. :) Honey loves him some BYU football. We have been season ticket holders for several years now but this year might not be a good one for his beloved cougars.

Almost ran into a moose and her baby (what are baby moose called? calf?) on Saturday night by our cabin. Sure glad the mama scrambled out of the way in time! We had heard they were around so it was fun to be able to see them before we headed home.
