WIP Wednesday: The Clubhouse

Yowsa! I've enjoyed squeezing in a few non-quilting projects in the last week or so. My sewing room (aka The Clubhouse) is thinking about leaving its ugly duckling stage and becoming more of a swan.

Last week I had this:

Now I have this:

Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.

It's nice to be surrounded artwork that I love.

These shelves help keep tools within reach as well. 

The cans will eventually be wrapped in colorful paper. I was inspired by someone else's craft caddy project, but I can't find it now.

That's as much as of The Clubhouse that I'm prepared to show right now. (The rest of the room is a disaster.) Just know that it's in the works.

In terms of sewing, I suppose I really only have one quilt and a block going. The rest are all in my mind.

1) Storm at Sea

2) Rose Star block

Figments of my quilty imagination:
- baby quilt with Kate Spain Terrain fabrics
- custom baby quilt for a boy
- Elizabeth Hartmann Sparkle Punch Quilt

Happy Wednesday!

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced, Sew Much Ado, and Someday Crafts.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. It looks smashing! The art collection is adorable and the colored vintage mood of the shelf is... irresistible! I'm sure that the whole room will look great.I'm a follower :)

    1. Thanks so much! I appreciate the encouragement. It took a bit for it to come together. I really thought I'd made a huge mistake more than once in the process ;-)

  2. Nice transformation! I love your sewing machine table...all those drawers!!
    Your quilt is looking lovely as well, and i really like the fabric in you rose star block.

  3. Wow! That's a great sewing room! Congratulations! The storm at sea quilt is beautiful. Love the design and the colors!

  4. I love shelves..I need more shelves!
    Get on with your storm quilt cos I love it!

    1. Thanks so much! I do love having the shelves. These came from Exposures in the mid 90s. It looks like they still carry them, but I'd love to see if someone could craft up something similar with crown moulding from the home supply store.

  5. Looks fabulous!!! Come do mine??? (hear the whine)...

  6. The new look is great! Oh my, if I listed all of the projects that are just "figments of my imagination".... I'm sure your list could go on as well!

  7. So pretty! I love the shelves and the art - especially the feather print!
    The fussy cutting on your rose and star looks great :)

    1. Thanks so much! I'm glad you reminded me, too. The feather print is by Satchel & Sage at The "Work like a captain, play like a pirate" print is from Monorail Studio at and the calendar is from Rifle Paper Co.

  8. What a lovely sewing space! It's bright, colorful and unique. I love it!!!
