Friday finds June 12

Quilting In South Carolina   Shelia's thread storage systemMost of us never have enough sewing or storage space.  When you are a quilter you need a magic wand, or genie or someone to make room for all your items.  I have a friend who has a wonderful hubby that added on and created a fabulous space for her.
   Her thread storage area alone is worth a look. Shelia blogs at Quilting in South Carolina and this is her studio tour.  You need to see it!  Be sure to check out her ironing station too.....I am so envious of it and all her space!

Quilt Kisses: Side-by-Side Quilt Ladder Tutorial

   From Quilt Kisses.....I borrowed her photo of a folding quilt display rack---with her permission.  She recently posted a full tutorial    for the rack made by Mr. Quilt Kisses.   And we all need for storage and display ideas.   Thanks, Jasmine, for sharing this.

Update:   Sharon  of  Vroomans Quilts commented that this would be perfect for her shop and travel.  Now why did I not think of that?  I sure do need one for doing programs and classes and it will fit in the van!  Now, where is Sir Old Man hiding.....oh, honey, I have a new project for you......

Pat Sloan thread cone holder hack button

  From Pat Sloan....a cheat, as she calls it.    I thought this was good one to remember.....a thread cone holder.   

  Use a cup---wide base that won't tip over---with a lid.  The thread feeds through the opening for a tangles.  Good for the machine and for hand sewers too.

    LuAnn shared some new free motion feathers  this week from her sketchbook.  She is trying for a looser and more open feather.  I like these and need to practice some drawing to get the hang of these.  Thanks, LuAnn!

  As always, please visit the links for details and for pinning.   I am only passing on the site links and basic information.

 Coming in October....The Aunt Het Quilt Show 2015.    This is my guild's  local show which is always fun.....a lot of work too!  It is viewer's choice--not judged---and ribbons are awarded.   All the details on the link.....if you might happen to be in the area, or even if you are interested in entering a quilt.    lol.....I might just enter a "mini" this year.....not made by me, but owned by me.  Just saying.

Happy stitching.

Thank you for all the links and tips - I have to show the quilt rack to my son. This is exactly what I want him to make for the shop and perfect for travel, too.

Thanks for mentioning me, Debbie! I'm going to go check out that room. :)

If I could get my broom to work, I'd be there for your show. Maybe a fun (road) trip next year.
Love your references. I'm moving to a new house soon (within a month) and will have a new sewing room. I need all the ideas I can get. Thanks for sharing.

Always so many good things in your Friday Finds.
Love that thread storage (drool), and I have seen display racks like that before and wished they were mine.
I do like that feather style. : )
