Organizing My Quilting Tools

I have this great wooden light table that my grandfather made for me when I was in high school. I use it for many quilting and craft projects, including paper piecing and applique.

I realized that the table was too cluttered. I had rulers, rotary cutters, and writing implements all over the top of it. I kept pushing things to the side to make room to work on quilt blocks (using my wonderful combo Omnigrid cutting mat/ironing surface).

So a recent trip to IKEA became a hunt for a small organizer to hang above my light table!

I found a great set in the kitchen section called Fintorp. I purchased 1  rail, 2 sets of hooks, and 3 galvanized caddies.

Next, I decided to use my Cricut to cut some vinyl labels for each caddy.

Here’s the finished product organizer above the table:

I think these little buckets will really help me keep my cutting surface organized!
