There's been some major rearranging, organizing and decluttering going on in my sewing room to make way for that new machine and fabric gifts I was telling you about!
This shelving unit now sits atop (rather than side by side) the bigger shelving unit to provide more floor space. I think I need to do a series of Adventures in....it's not as easy as you think to lift a bookcase 5 feet up ;-) If you notice, I left two cubbies relatively empty and ready for that new fabric!
I was spoiled with a very generous gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop which allowed this purchase of fabric that includes a Moda Snuggles pack, Riley Blake fat quarters bundle, and Sarah Jane Children at Play in cotton and flannel.
These lovely fabrics were on sale and are already earmarked for quilts. There's some yardage of Amy Butler Lark and Valori Wells Karavan that I have had my eye on for a while.
Here's the after picture which the fabric nicely tucked away. Nice eye candy, huh?
My new machine...can I just say I. LOVE. IT?!!!
My husband did good. I gave him some general
requirements suggestions, and he took it from there ;-)
I have only had a chance to use my machine to make two blocks for our guild meeting so far, but I am very impressed by how smooth and quiet it is.
These spool blocks from Modern Blocks were quick and fun to make, and a great way to break my new machine in.
I am anxious to finish a quilt top so I can see how my new machine quilts!
