My quilting has changed and evolved into something new. Previously I bought LOTS of patterns and books…even some kits and loved doing that but now, things have changed. I actually like the changes…but with every change there are a few growing pains.
With our daughter Kelli and I doing some quilt designing and work on our own, most of my sewing time goes into those projects and a VERY-SMALL amount of select projects that are designed by others. It’s not that I don’t love what others are working on…there just isn’t time. With that in mind, I have been trying to slash my sewing room. I went through and listed lots of my books on Amazon’s used book store. You can see my listings here.
I also went through and decided to get rid of two kits that I have. The first one is an Open Gate, Monique Dillard pattern with the fabric included and the mini fit to be Geese Ruler. The finished quilt is 18″ x 18″. The pattern shows reds and greens but the kit uses reds and tans. Backing is not included. $15-postage included. It was so cute finished.
The next kit is a wool applique kit: Lily Anna Stitches, Pinwheel Blossom. It’s 15″ x 26″. The wool, fabric, backing, binding and buttons are included..
.It was originally $44.50. Price $34 including postage.SOLD
I’ve taken boxes of non current books and magazines to Goodwill. I am just finding it is much easier to creative in a not quite so cluttered space. If the things don’t sell I am just going to toss the patterns and absorb the fabric..fabric is something I never part with.
If you are interested, send me an email…firstname.lastname@example.org.

I’ve seen quilt patterns at Goodwill. Also we have a freebie table at guild meetings. Instead of tossing patterns consider sharing with the guilds where you go to speak and teach. This might be the inspiration a newbie quilter would need.
