Last week, I mentioned to my sweetie that I might want to bring one of my sewing machines to the city so I can get a little bit of sewing done on week nights. Well... I came home from work one night and he had cleaned up a huge area of the basement, put an old table in there and freed up some shelves. I had a new sewing room in the city! I was so excited.
|The floor needs a good coat of paint, but it'll do for now! This is my little ironing station. Notice Bibelot and Decoy sitting pretty on that chair? :-)|
|My new sewing table! Can you see the storage in the back? I need to move some stuff around back there, but once I'm done, it'll be perfect for books, magazines and some of my pre-cuts!|
So which project did I decide to start with in my new city sewing room? A baby quilt. A good friend of mine just had a little baby boy and I decided to make him a little quilt from charm squares. I found the tutorial on the Moda Bakeshop and used leftover charms I had that looked a boyish.
|Sorry about the bad picture! The lighting really isn't great in the basement and there's no way I can take a picture outside today!|
The baby's name is Adam... did you guess? :-)
I will hopefully have time to prepare the backing and start basting this little quilt tomorrow night so it can be quilted and delivered early next week.
Now that I can sew during the week, I might actually start blogging a little more regularly too! :-)
Have a great week everyone and to all my friends on the East Coast... Stay Safe!
