Metal 30 Drawer Cabinet repurposed for Fabric Precuts

I came across this cabinet while the hubby was in the process of moving shops. The new owner wasn't interested in keeping it, so I loaded it up and carried it home... My awesome brother in law helped me with his expertise in wood fabrication of the new base. 

This is the back of the cabinet, but the front and drawer fronts were just as rough...

This cabinet was dismantled and all the imperfections sanded away...
Drawers were divided in half for sanding and repainting...

Now it's all sanded and repainted black, white and red.
I've decided it's perfect for my fabric precuts and since I'm down sizing I'll need something slimmer to hold fabric until we're settled in our new home....

Hummingbird paper pieced Love

I never had any luck with real hummingbirds, maybe because I didn't mix the nectar right or hang the feeder in the right location or maybe I didn't change the nectar often enough, never figured out the real hummingbirds. I did figure out how to paper piece and am now comfortable with advanced paper pieced patterns, with that said I decided to try this hummingbird pattern... I love it and not only did  I figure out paper piecing but I also figured out how to get the hummingbirds to hang around!! Literally!! Well, not the real ones, but these vibrant fabric hummingbirds will do just fine!! Oh, and the best part is that I can pet them anytime I want!! 
I love this pattern from www.equiltpatterns.com 
If your ever looking for a beautiful pattern head on over to their site and have a look see! I'm pretty sure you'll find what your looking for and then some!! 
I love hummingbirds so much I decided to make more!! In sharing my blocks on Facebook, Sandy Voss shared her quilt using the same pattern!! So I hope she doesn't mind me sharing her beautiful quilt here!!
Thanks Sandy!!
