I love to quilt and I spend as much free time as possible piecing quilts. I don’t do a lot of actual quilting except on small projects like table runners. It’s just so difficult to move those big quilts under the arm of my machine. My Mom, however, recently began longarming so I’m very excited about turning over my tops to her!!
I’m lucky to have an entire room devoted to my work and as you can see here, it is not uncommon for one of our four dogs to follow me into the sewing room late at night and fall asleep while I’m working! This is Sam in his favorite spot just last night. At first I was concerned that he might be causing damage to the stash, but I’ve been over it several times and except for adding a few wrinkles, I don’t see that he is doing any harm. He’s just so darn cute that it’s hard to be mad at him.
Here are some photos of my sewing room.
It’s hard to miss the VERY large stack of UFO’s in the corner. I’m absolutely determined to finish them. The more I finish the more room I will have for more creating. Now if I could only stop finding other projects to do first I’d probably make more progress…
Here’s a close up of my sewing space. Two machines and one serger. I really like having two machines set up and ready to go. The Pfaff Grand Quilter on the left only does a straight stitch but it’s a Power House! Boy, can I stitch through some monster size thicknesses of fabric with this machine. Because this machine only does straight stitches, I am also very grateful to have a Huskvarna Viking Scandinavia. It’s got lots of stitches and it’s digitized. How wonderful is it to have two different machines set up at the same time??
My biggest frustration is the size of the room. At approximatley 10 x 10 feet, it’s a squeeze. I’m constantly threatening to blow out the back wall and expand the room. My husband is pretty opposed to this idea (darn)…
Overall, I love my space and I love my quilting time. It’s my goal to do it full time. It’s gonna happen.
