Off to Quilting we will go

Finally have some time for quilting, Yea~~ Hopefully this summer has slowed down for me some. I've got revival all this week going on but so far the day time is looking quite nicely.

I posted a picture of part of my quilting room which is a converted small garage size is 16x24'. I machine quilt on a grace machine frame and with a Janome 1600 DBX. I'd love to have a bigger throated machine but I'm content with what I have. I'll admit I love having the space to work on projects, leave it and come back to it later when I want it. I keep most of my fabric in the cabinets sorted by colors. The drawers to the left in the picture has anything 1/2 yard smaller in there sorted by style, example: civil war, country, w.o.w fabric, 1930's, flannels and mixed. There are 3 scrap baskets under my cutting table once they are full I start cutting them in squares from sizes 6"-1" in size and place them in drawers maked by size.
So now I'm going to put one of my 9 tops on frame to get them quilted, I hope. I'm making a list of them so I can start marking them off as I get them completed.

What to do with These Strips

Well been swapping out some 1930's strips now I don't know what I'm going to make with them. any ideas would be greatly welcomed, so please post away. but please, please don't mention a log cabin quilt, those drive me insane while sewing, my lil mind can't take it, LOL.

I've got a lot of 1930's in my stash I'm willing to cut into more strips if needed, trying to reduce my stash so that isn't a problem.

I need some motivation in getting my butt in gear so help a quilter out here, LOL

Here is a picture of some of the strips. Aren't they gorgeous~~~
