I just a few minutes ago remembered that I promised sewing center photos. Back story for anyone who didn't read my 45 Polka Dot fabrics thread..... a few years ago I was looking online and happened upon a sewing center that had a retail price of $4,000 on it!! I showed my Dad at some point, and he offered to recreate it for me!!
So he made this entire thing for me. These two pictures aren't ideal because I'm not at a point where I can close it all up and show you it shut.... but I will someday for ya!!
That table folds up and the doors close shut and the whole thing looks like an amoire. Dad cut a hole in the table for the machine to sit down in, but if I just want a big cutting area, I can take the machine out and he made a hole-plug thing so that makes it a complete table to work on.
There's a hole cut into the back wall by the machine that the power cords can go thru and plug into an outlet behind the whole thing. I have a power strip there that the sewing machine, iron and my tensor light plug into.
It's got the HUGE drawers like a bureau chest of drawers and those are full of fabrics. One is just full of thread. hehehe!
OK.... change of topic!! Here's where I need some quick opinions!!! I am making this "Dotty Stars" quilt.
The first step is to make the 9-patch squares in the center of each square.
I laid out 4 9-patches....
It's supposed to be made up of 4 light patches and 5 dark patches. Do you think mine are distinct enough so that it's clear?
