    I have been working on this room for about a month now. I finally got it done. I am very happy with it. (Let's hope this works with the pics)

    It's in my basement. I have lived in this house for 3 years and finally got it the way I want it.

    I am including a picture of my house. This was done as a slice quilt from members of our guild. We took a picture of what we wanted, sliced into however many pieces we wanted (6 in my case) and gave a piece to the participants. They did their slice, in turn I did a slice of what ever they chose and then returned. This is what my picture looks like, which is my house. It is not sewn together yet, was just playing to see what I have to do to get it done for our final June meeting.

    Very peaceful, go to sleep to tree frogs croaking, wake up to birds singing. See an occasional deer, bear, hear wolves howling in background, porcupine and beavers. Surrounded by nature. Love it most times.

    now this is what a quilt artist studio looks like not like that decorator's idea of what a quilt room should look like.

    i just love it!

    that quilt of your house is just fabulous!!

    Space is the key word! I sure wish Florida had basements. I thought my spare bedroom was great, but now I want that room :!:

    I agree with what kluedesigns said. I do love the fru-fru of some rooms I have seen, but it is better decorating for other parts of a house.
    Now your room is spectacular. I love all the wood, the organization, the roominess, your projects...heck, i love each and every single thing about it. I would live down there!
    Love your house too, that's beautiful, can't quite figure out, how other ppl did pieces and they go together, would love to know.
    This has got to be my favorite sewing/quilting room, so far! congrats, sandiphi! :D

    Love the layout.

    Do you buy your material by the yard, or do you have it wrapped around something?

    I am just counting down the days until I can have a full room for quilting ( there are 59 of them left).
