Which quilt to work on....

     I am heading upstairs to work on a quilt.  I am not sure if I am going to work on my basketweave quilt, or if I am going to work on Jasons Black and White quilt...decisions...decisions!!!  It is cold and icy here, a great day to just sew, sew, sew!  I haven't even been in my sewingroom since I got back from Knoxville!  I have done a little shopping though!  I did find a great fabric for the back of my basketweave quilt, and bought all 9 7/8 yards of it, I don't think it is going to be enough, but I can make a few strips of the same blocks that are on the quilt top and just piece the back.  I also went to the Goodwill store in Nashville on my way home and found several shirts and then hit one of the stores here when I got home, so I have washed them all, cut the buttons off and got them all cut apart!  So, all I need to do now is go up and cut the yokes into strips (did I mention that this quilt is made entirely of the yokes of the shirts that I have been collecting?). 
     I also need to start thinking about getting my sewingroom cleaned up, our quilt guild is having "virtual tours" of all of our sewingrooms...that will be fun to see where everyone creates all of the awesome quilts, bags, etc. that they make!!  Have I told you that my husband and I bought a house with my mom 5 years ago?  We share a sewingroom, and I have all of my scrapbooking stuff up there also, it is very scary at times!!  Ha! Ha!
     I hope that you have a great day!!
