Tinkerbell D9P

Here's this weekend's work on a very special quilt for a very special girl who adores Tinkerbell.

In the bright sun, I was not able to capture the vibrant colors of the quilt.

Here's a shot of the sun-lit backside:

Thanks to the handiwork of my Aunt Mary,

We have a personalized touch -

I hope Jasmine loves it!

It's not quite done as of this posting.
Here's the quilt on the table freshly basted:
My nifty new scissors I picked up in Paducah this year, made by Kai, cut thru this big roll of flannel & cotton batting:
Here, you can see the scissors, too:
The binding will match the small green squares!

A Princess Tutu

Here's my latest project, made using this tutorial from Plumtickled.
It was as easy as she describes in the tutorial. It turned out super cute!
I know a certain little girl who will look like a princess in this!

Sewing Machines and Studio Bits

I've been upgrading, repositioning, and rearranging the studio
for maximum sewing pleasure.

Here's the quilt rack I finally assembled. It's a Grace Z44.
It's been mocking me for a month or so now.
Once I figure out how to load the quilts on this monster, there'll be no stopping me!

Here's a few shots of Grams' sewing machine.
This is a Singer 329K.

It sews like a dream.
This is an entry-level bells-and-whistles Baby Lock Grace.

It's nice & light. It makes great stitches.
A White Serger Superlock 2000. Groovy seams!
Janome Coverpro 900. groovier seams! all knit all the time.
Both the coverstitch and serger on Grams' potting table I refinished.

And a bonus new fabric storage cabinet:
