It’s growing! I’m pleased to report that this Ferris wheel quilt is making good progress despite the fact that I am only working on it during my lunch hour and maybe about 30 minutes a week at home. I first wrote about this quilt here.
I’m finding if the pieces are already basted, I can add one “wheel” per lunch hour.
I spend maybe 30-60 minutes per week at home basting pieces so they are ready to sew together when I’m at lunch.
The pieces are so small, you can baste them in no time flat.
Here is how I have them organized:
Tupperware made these in the late 1970s and 1980s. They are called Stow n Go craft containers. I LOVE THEM!!!. I have two small ones (this size) and one jumbo-sized one. This small one is perfect for this project.
There are seven compartments and the top tray is removable.
It all locks up tight with a Tupperware lid. Nothing is falling out of this baby while it’s in transit.
I could sing the praises of my Tupperware Stow n Go craft containers all day long, but I’ll spare you. I’ll just say this in closing. I found mine in thrift stores over several years, but if you are interested in one, they are readily available on eBay and Etsy. Just shop carefully and don’t overpay as sometimes the prices are just plain silly. Or ask your mom or grandma. She may still have hers and be willing to pass it on down to you!
I’ll keep you apprised of my progress!
P.S. Sorry these photos are sort of dark. The sun going down earlier is hard on us bloggers who work during the day, at least in terms of photography!
