    A little piece of my Heaven

    My husband and I remodeled our kitchen a while back. The cabinets that were taken out of the kitchen, my husband made me this WONDERFUL sewing table. I love it. I still need to put the drawers in. But this is just perfect for me! As you can see I am already using it for my quilt lol. The second picture is of my quilt frame room and design board. The design board covers that entire wall. Love it! The jar quilt I am working on and will post more about it later when I get it finished. The jar quilt has real significance to me and I will explain what that is later when it is done. I still have more veggies to "jar" lol The other bright quilt I am making is, i guess for my 6 year old, has already claimed it and it isn't finished yet. LOL.

    Thanks for looking )

    It looks great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    That looks like a very nice room to work in, and lots of nice natural light!

    I love your jar quilt on the wall. Do you have a pattern source you can share?

    Very nice space. I have kitchen cabinets in my sewing room and a long countertop over the base cabinets. Just wish I would have had the backsplash cut off. My large cutting mat would fit a little better.

    I really like the U shaped work area around your sewing machine.

    Very nice. I'll claim the jar quilt if no one in the family claims it. LOL Like that would ever happen. The quilts are beautiful. I love the huge design wall. Kuddos to DH on the cabinets, they look great and you will have extra storage. Something we can never have to much of!...

    I also have a question about the frame with your Brother machine. Can you describe this set up a bit more.
    How do you like it? And what's involved with it?
    Thanks and lovely quilting area.

    My frame is a handiquilter 2, tabletop kind. the tracks are screwed to the folding table and the arms holding the bars are held down by vicegrips thingys. I like it. It serves my needs, but I want to upgrade one day to a much sturdier frame. The bars to this frame are not very strong and I have to be careful not to roll the quilt too tight or the bars will bow.

    Great space! Is that a Handi-quilter frame with a regular sewing machine on it? Do you like it? I have the frame, but have trouble using it. Have about a dozen quilt tops I need to finish. Need to use this until I can afford a long arm.(sigh).
