    My quilting "room" is a tiny used to be utility space, so you know I'm drooling over your pics.Looks like an up scale LQS :D.It's just wonderful & know you'll enjoy making even more quilts.

    BTW,my Mother attended a one room sch such as you describe.It's been a home for several yrs now & I see it often.Now I'll think of yours with that sewing room when I go by.Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you - I started putting the borders on it last night and will post it as a finished top, before I quilt it as that may be a while!

    :-D

    Just wonderful, how can we not envy your workshop, it's a dream come tru for many of us. Regarding your cutting table, did you put a board over the 2 bar units or if there just fitted together. I was wandering about the join in the middle.

    It butts up fairly flat, I can't feel the join through my cutting mats at all. :-D

    It's a PP block called 'Twisted Log Cabin' from EQ6. I just reversed every other block. It's waiting for a border.

    I'm now working on the OBW. You can't really see in the pic but it's dragons and I've done some 3D elements in it as well. It's called 'Tipping the Scales'. I'll post it soon as a top because it will be a little wat down the quilting queue! I might have a bash with metallic thread and do some flames in the border which is black. :-D

    How awesome is this!!!! I would love to spend a month in your new sewing space. Let us know when you have your open house--we may all decide to visit! :-) Seriously, I am very impressed with the organized spaces, and especially your work counters.

    Just reading that you live in England after living 5 years in France made me jealous! What a lovely life experience.

    Your sewing room / studio is a quilter's dream. You are so fortunate to have a large space with lots of natural light to make your creations.

    warm quilt hugs, sue in CA

    Yes, CT and VA. It's actually only about an 8 hour drive from where she is to where I am. BUT....you see, if you flew into Washington DC, you'd actually be closer to me. You really don't want to go into NYC...too crowded lol

    I love seeing other's sewing rooms. I plan on turning a storage room into a sewing room soon, so I may take a page or two from yours. I've had ideas swimming around in my head since I desided on the project. Your space is fantastic!!
