The sorting, cutting, folding and storing of the flannel fabrics is
DONE! Have to admit that at the end, it was really a chore.
Bigger pieces in the big basket, two plastic bags full of little scraps for more crumb blocks and a gazillion of cut pieces all ready for the sewing.
In case you are wondering what the beginning looked like. What a mess!
Then I put all that away and replaced it with
I moved the bins in front of my design wall in order to clean the middle of the sewing room. I asked the boys to bring down my rocking chair. Now I can do some hand sewing here if I want to. The boys also have a place to sit when they want to cool off . It gets so hot in the playing room during the summer.

I did find a wee bit of time to sew.
This morning, I did some more flying geese units as I was getting low on variety. When all the components are done, getting the blocks together is a breeze.
Looking at all the cut pieces I am wondering how am I to make blocks by colours when they are sorted like this? I still have a lot of work in front of me I think.
Then I saw on Cathy's blog "Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting" her gorgeous finished quilt and I went "Darn! That's what I wanted to do!! I should have cut some pieces for these blocks too!!"
Oh well, there's still plenty of flannel left in this house for 40 quilts.
