When I received my clean bill of health a short while ago, Mr. Painted Quilt made the executive decision that we needed to celebrate and now this BIG gal...the 750QE...has taken up residence in my studio. It goes without saying that I'm thrilled beyond words.
When my new "best friend" arrived a few days ago, some things just had to change.
I still wanted to keep my 1080 as a back up so I had some major rearranging to do in my studio.
And after. And here's BIG Bernie!
We moved the Hoosier into another room which freed up a lot of space.
And here's the rest of the room with my 1080 corner and cutting table.
Did you notice my new steamer/presser? This is another new and wonderful addition to my studio.
I use it to give the final press to my pieced blocks and the difference is amazing. After pressing, the seams become as flat as a pancake and the size of the block remains unchanged.
And a few other shots from around the room...
The top to my nautical quilt is almost complete. I still need to add two additional borders...another small red one and the outermost one which will be more detailed.
When finished, it will measure approximately 90" x 82".
I am hoping to release the pattern for Safe Harbor in the next month or so.
Thank you all for your input in selecting the name and as soon as the pattern packet is available, I'll be announcing the winners of my giveaways. Safe Harbor was the overwhelming choice for the title.
