    I took over the Master Bedroom

    OK, the rooms in my house aren't big to begin with and I will still also be in the old sewing room (cutting table and ironing board).
    I bought a juki machine last year from a friend on another forum and then the quilting frame to put it on and so it began........
    Today DH put the tables and draws together (IKEA)

    Did you save a room for your sleeping? You have a wonderful DH to give up a bigger bedroom for your quilting. It looks like a great space for sewing.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Looking good! Do you use your big mirror for checking the back of your quilting on the frame?

    Your sewing room is amazing. I love the way it is set up and the tables with your machines looks like a perfect setup. There are no IKEA stores in my part of the world and I haven't found any place comparable. Your wall color is so pretty and soothing.

    I am curious how you feel about your Juki. How big is the arm? I'm replacing my machine on my quilting frame
    and was interested in one with about a 13-15 inch arm. So far, I've found the Bailey.

    Love it; the colors of the walls, the curtains, and the white furniture. I would love a room like that!

    For those who have asked about the juki, I really haven't played with it much yet. It has a 9" throat.
    I got to play in my new room today because I had some things to get done for my quilt guild meeting tomorrow but after that I have to work on figuring out where everything is going.

    I love my Juki 2010 and have it on a frame (which I purchased from a member from this board). For the cost of my set up it is wonderful. I have less than $1500 for the whole set up including stitch regulator. You are really limited to the type of free motion quilting your can do because you don't have a huge throat but for meandering and "cute" meandering it works good. I have been able to make waves and everything with mine. If you want to do quilting professionally you may want to get bigger machine, but the way I look at it, it will get me through this time, and even if I get a bigger throat machine down the line, I will still have the best work horse for piecing in the Juki. That is just my opinion but I free motion quilted 6 queen size quilts on a singer embroidery machine the Christmas before last so this is so much better.
