I have found the name of this pattern and where it was published. It is called Tahitian Postage Stamp and was featured on the cover of Quilt World Magazine May 1988. I tried to find the link to the…Continue
"Thank you Linda and Riana. Those are IKEA Billy bookcases with the glass doors. I wanted to try to keep the dust off the fabrics as best I could. I started moving my fabrics in tonight and I don't think I will even come close to filling half of…"
"Cabinets are all in and I have one more double-dresser style piece to assemble and then everything will be ready for moving in! I am going to start putting fabric in the cabinets tomorrow. Here is one wall with cabinets. I have one book case that…"
"The studio is finally at a point where we can start to move things in! I was hoping to get some of my new cabinets assembled and installed today, but my BIL didn't show up, so I put together one of them myself. There are some minor drywall and…"
"Wilma-What a great sewing space! It is nice that the furniture matches so it looks planned! All of my items in my new room will be white. I did plan that...lol..
LOVE the quilt Liz. Princesses and Villains! What a great idea."
"Can't wait to see photos of your room with the new furniture all set up Wilma.
Trim is down in my sewing room but the old garage floor has some high and low spots so I think I need to put some quarter round down to hide the gaps between the…"
"Beautiful quilt Theresa. I like EPP also, especially as a travel project. I have started several...just haven't finished anything. Hand quilting is quite an undertaking! I have never tried it, although my father gave me a frame that he bought…"
"Riana-the plastic that is along the walls will be removed once the tile is finished. It is up there now to protect the new paint from getting dirt and mortar and grout on it during the flooring. We removed the old garage door and put an entry door…"
"Thanks Liz and Linda. The room is 24 x 24 feet, so almost 600 square feet. I am sure that I can fill it up though. I have a bunch of Ikea shelves and cubes, my long arm machine and the new sewing table, plus the cutting and pressing tables I plan to…"
"What a great adventure you had Riana! Those are the things memories are made of, aren't they. Your block is great, but the stories behind it are even better!
The tile was laid in the studio this weekend. We have a hallway outside the room and a…"
"Wilma- I can't wait to see your new sewing room furniture. I ordered the Americana Luxury Sewing cabinet for my Dream Machine to go in my new sewing room. It arrived this week so it is currently in my living room waiting for the sewing studio…"
"Elizabeth-to be honest, our garage has never actually been used to park the cars in the 18 years we have owned this house. It was used to store crap, junk, stuff and tools, mostly. When we were younger, my husband was a mechanic and a car enthusiast…"
"Riana-It is funny because I hear so many people say that about batik's and I have honestly quilted a dozen or more quilts using batik in both top and backing, and pieced backs, and have had none of those issues. I use a ball point needle and…"
"Riana- My new sewing studio used to be a 24x24 two-car garage. We started remodeling it around the first of the year. Several obstacles have popped up that have delayed the completion, but it is getting close to the finish line now. I am hopeful…"
"Thanks everyone for the concern for my son and his family. They are all doing well and recovering with no major effects, thank goodness. They are, however, still on quarantine until next week. My older son and grandson both tested negative last week…"
"Hello ladies! It has been a while since I checked in. I have not done any sewing this past week except for quilting a charity quilt on my long arm as a trial run for this charitable organization. When I basted it to the top, the sides were CRAZY…"
"I reported home page not functioning...and now it partly functions, but not well. I don't use notifications, so l didn't know about feed. Go to very bottom of any page, look for " report an issue", and select those words. Then…"
"Thanks Elizabeth, your blue quilt is looking lovely. Blue is my favorite color!
Thanks Barbara and Riana. Green isn't really my thing but I had these strips left from some Hoffman strips after making my youngest son's wedding bargello so I…"
"I have made some progress on the Argyle Bargello. I am a little more than half done at this point. There is some fullness in it but it will be fine once quilted. I have 31 more rows to do! It is slow going and can be tedious, but I do love the…"
