I have this dresser in my Garage - and while I'm totally embarrassed to be posting pictures of old, ugly things relegated to my dusty garage, there's a good reason that I share this with you.
If you care anything for fabrics... anything for design and/or textiles... anything at all... I'm about to blow your mind.
Don't believe me?
Peek inside my dresser-drawers....
SEE? I told you so.
And hey, if you like patchwork, and I DO, I DO, then it's a durn near-miracle.
It's a dresser-full of dreams.
This particular drawer housed the bits and remnants from projects I've already completed.
For awhile, I was piecing and sewing patchwork bags both for myself and for sale. They are lovely. I still have a few, and will likely make more in the future.
The bottom drawer holds large swatches of textiles cut into 24" x 24" squares.
Lemme tell you-- There's a LOT you can do with a 24" x 24" square.
These pieces are about 18" x 18". Again... tons to do with them.
It's practically unending... and seeing as I've already been the caretaker of it all for more than 5 years already, I anticipate it will take a lifetime for me to use it all.
The top-right drawer is full of pieces I started cutting for a quilt. Turns out, I don't have the patience to make an ENTIRE quilt.
Oh.. I should've KNOWN better....
A nice stack of 12" x 12" squares.
This is what I pulled out this morning for a little somthin'-somthin' I'll post tomorrow....
I've already made it and photographed it and everything, but this WAS getting a little on the long-winded
See you tomorrow....
