    Finally organized...ready for new longarm!

    Hi all,
    I wanted to share with you my pictures of my some what "organized" quilting room. I read so many helpful hints on this board which I used that I'm finally almost done. After wrapping 500 comic boards plus using foam core for the bolts, I still have fabric to wrap...so ordered 200 more boards...problem is I don't have any more space in my room! I've recently purchased an Innova longarm which should be delivered in a few weeks. I saved and saved for this machine. Sadly if I would have ordered it over three years ago it would ave been cheaper! Here are the pictures...thans for everyone's help!

    Nice looking room just what I would like with the bookshelves. Everything is so neat. I really need to get going on mine. May you have many hours of enjoyable sewing in your room.

    All the shelving, TV table and chest of drawers came fom Ikea! More resonably priced than quilting furniture. The shelves are the Billy line. What do you think of my curtains? I made them using M'Fay patterns. All the fabric in bags on the shelves still has to wraped on comic boards. I'm getting there!

    Wowzer, that's some stash!! And the work on your design wall is stunning. Can you tell me the name of the pattern for both the big quilt and the circular one? Thanks and have fun when the longarm arrives.

    What a beautiful space you have. You can hardly see the walls in my 8x8 room as drawer totes, book shelves and an old tin cupboard pretty well cover them and NOT with fabric---they are in another room, still in totes and boxes. Enjoy your new LA and your great suite. Thanks for sharing.

    That's a lot of work, I remember when I did my sewing room and I don't have near as much as you do ... yet.
    It's so rewarding to go into the room once you do all this -- I know I still walk by room months later and will stop just to admire the view.
    I LOVE the quilt you've got on the design wall.

    Where will the LA go? In front of the window? Just trying to visualize. I love your room and ALL THAT STASH! WOW!

    Hi... The name of the pattern on the design wall is Tonga Rhapsody by Wing and a Prayer Designs. This pattern uses Marti Michell templates. The circle/ Mariner's Compass is from the book Reach for the Stars by Brenda Hennings. It's my first star for a quilt I'm going to make after I finished the Tonga Rapsody quilt...it's paper-pieced.

    The book shelves are from Ikea, the "Billy" line. I still have to get the doors so the fabric stays clean.

    Yes...in front of the window. The space is 7ft 4 inches by 12ft 9 inches. I'm getting a 10 ft frame.. 18" Innova...wanted a 22" neck but I'm not sure it will fit.
