I thought I would show you one of my "ready to go" project boxes.  This one is for my "Farmer's Wife Quilt Sampler" (FW) blocks.


Inside this box is another box among other things.

This one has my embroidery scissors, a selection of threads, my handy needle threader, and my nifty Clover finger press. Seeing that I use size 9 needles I really do need the threader sometimes, especially when I am doing a lot of handstitching. 

I keep the pre -cut  blocks in little plastic bags which are labelled with the block names.

And  the current block I am working on is also in the box pinned to the calico.
Here is a photo of the latest blocks I have completed.

And finally, another Henrietta Whiskers block.. 

Thankyou for visiting . I would love to know how you store your projects and whether you have any other "ready to go" storage ideas. 


  1. Wonderful way to be organized, Ondrea. I should try that method, I might actually get somewhere.... lol
    Do you cut your fabrics with pinking shears? just thought some of the pieces looked like that. :)

  2. I also use this method now for projects I want to start,previous projects are in large bags with everything I need in them for a quick take with me grab bag :) Barb.

  3. Thank you for showing us that Ondrea . I love looking at your work . It is so neat.

  4. Congratulations on being so well organised Ondrea! I love your Henrietta Whiskers block:) I really must look at FW again; your photos make me feel quite slack.
