    It's finally finished, the "Quilting Annex" is ready to go!!! (lots of pictures)

    Well, it's done. My new quilting table is in. It's organized, clean and I am pooped........LOL

    The concept of my quilting table is the same as HQ's Sweet Sixteen setup, only larger.
    Bailey's new table is 60" x 40", the bookcase is 29" x 15" and it's 30" high. My husband rounded off the one corner so I didn't take of half my hip running into it, plus is prevents the quilt top from catching on it.

    We bought some crates from Micheal's, the big book case my husband made me last year. It holds my quilting books, magazines, my yarn and knitting stuff, and my cool red Bose Ipod dock sits on top.
    I have storage under the table for my silver tubs filled with scraps of various sizes. The big blue tub is my UFO
    storage (only 2 UFO's are in there) the quilt on the trunk is a top I bought at a church rummage sale for 50 cents.
    I am hand tying that one.
    The closet is an extra stash spot, it is my fleece stash. as well as a catch all on the other side...LOL
    The antique hutch belonged to my husband's father. I think its a cool piece of furniture.
    Don't panic Ladies!! The main horde of my fabric stash is in the other sewing room. I didn't want you to think I had gone off the deep end and lost my stash. It's safe......LOL

    Enjoy the tour !!!

    I made the fish one. And the small doll quilt I picked up at an antique shop.
    Thanks for the compliment.

    That's a fantastic room!
    On the chair by the window, do I see a little pet bed for your quilt inspector?

    Yes, you do!

    That's a comfortable looking sewing room. I think you need to mess it up just a little. Go have fun sewing!

    Thanks

    Snow isn't such a bad 4 letter word. I like it, sure it's a mess to get around in. But around here it's welcomed. When it melts it seeps down to the aquifer where we get our water.

    Thanks everyone.

    Today I have to get my main sewing room cleaned up. And I rearranged a couple of pieces of furniture in other parts of the house so that needs to be cleaned and put back together too.

    Hopefully tomorrow I can get back to sewing before my machines think I abandoned them.

    Wow, great set-up. And not crammed with stuff. That's how I'd like my space to look someday.

    Thanks, it looks that way because I am blessed with two rooms for my hobby(s). I can't work in a messy or cluttered work area.

    I have two UFO's to finish.
    This week I am making a fleece vest for my husband. The one where it zips up to cover your neck. And I am making myself I jacket to wear around the house made from leftover pieces of very colorful fleece.

    New pictures

    I forgot to take pictures yesterday on the insert that allows the machine to be taken out. And the spool holder offset behind the machine.

    What a spectacular setup, especially the desk! Good job! Regarding the desk, I'd like to know more about how you recessed the machine. Is there one solid piece of wood at the very bottom on which the machine sits and then a second piece of wood, with a cutout, on which the surface of the quilt moves? If not, then what did you do? Thanks!

    Hi Cricket

    The recessed part is 11" x 36" x 3 3/4". A smaller piece of material was cut just a little bit bigger than the bottom of the machine, the other thin board is there as a spacer to raise the machine to the proper height.

    These pictures should give you a better idea on how this was done.
