Much excitement at my house! (OK. Not from the teenaged population.) Just imagine you are a quilt under my machine. Look at all that space! Yes! I got a table for my machine to sit into (look at all that flat space I have to quilt on now!) and it matches up perfectly to my old table (seen at the back of the photo with all my stuff on it) just to make quilting big quilts possible! Of course I haven't tested it out yet,(Mr 18 has only just finished building it and Mr 11 has only just finished recycling the box it came in.) but I'm optimistic that it is going to be the perfect quilting solution!
Quilt's eye view
I am so glad I went to AQC last week because that is where this idea was born. And I'm so glad that I had been quilting the days before I went. I saw a Horn sewing cabinet display which had a similar set up and I thought it looked like a great idea. The saleswoman saw my lit up eyes and I think she saw a sale, but I didn't need a Horn solution because I never need to pack my sewing up. (I have two rooms, dining and lounge room, at my disposal here. My family are very good to me.) In the corner of the display I saw a small table with "my" sewing machine in it and inquired about it. When I got home I chatted to my Bradley about the table and then forgot about it. He didn't though and popped into our local sewing centre and ordered me a table. I thought the one at the show was a great price, but he got an even better price and today he picked it up. So, quilting heaven is here. So glad because I am itching to quilt the humongous Kate Spain "Good Fortune" flimsy I pieced in January. Sorry, just about done showing off now. Must go catch the post!!! (Shhhh! It's a secret!)
