    I created a new space for my new Tin Lizzie 18 Sit-down model. I purchased cubes at Target and as many bins as I could find at the Hobby Lobby stores in the OKC area. It was the cheapest solution I could find for storage. I put my Bernina in there on a folding table just to 'try out the space'. As soon as the UPS guy brings my new machine I'll take down the folding table and put the Tin Lizzie there! I have two quilts pin/basted together, ready to quilt, I have another top completed...ready to baste the layers together and another top that just needs the borders! I'm so excited I can hardly wait....now.....where are you UPS GUY???

    I just ordered 4 sets of 3 cubes for my fabric storage! I am really excited about them arriving so I can get started sorting my mess. Your space looks great and lets me know my idea will work.

    Still basting your quilts? Quilting on a frame means no basting needed. I must not understand how your setup is going to be. Well, congratulations on your new machine!!

    The new machine is in a sit-down type table. It's a long-arm, 18", but set in a table. I do not have the space for the long-arm frames. It is not exactly what I wanted but it will be better than trying to quilt queen size quilts on my Bernina!

    If I were going to get a LA I'd get a sit down model too. Good For You! I am able to quilt everything on my Bernina so far but if it ever gets to be an "issue" maybe I can HINT enough to get one.

    :-D
