Dresden Plate Lap Quilt

I've recently finished this Dresden Plate lap quilt.  I made the blocks 12" and mixed them with some Irish chain blocks.
This is one of my favourite quilts I've ever made.  I love how it turned out.
It is all free motion machine quilted - I didn't mark the quilt top first.  Click on the photos for close ups.
I'm even quite pleased with how it loks on the back.
I'll finish with a photo of my sewing room.  This is how I store my WIP s and UFO s.  I don't like to keep them folded, so I use the coat hangers for trousers with the clips on the top - perfect for the job.  How do you store yours?
Until the next time ......

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having
a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
