First the one I plan to machine quilt. My sewing room is a 400 square foot loft above our great room. It only has 3 walls and all of them are somewhat sloped. When my longarm was delivered (and how we got it up to that loft is a story in itself) I lost wall space. I moved a wardrobe, pictured above, against the railing. This worked great in the sewing loft - created a cozy feel to an open area and I got to keep my beloved storage. But from below, the back wasn't all that nifty looking.
We placed the sail boat quilt to drape down the back of the wardrobe but it didn't quite cover it all so we then draped my Grandmother's snowball quilt over the railing. I like the way it looks but I never wanted these two quilts to be used in this way, it was a "temporary" solution. By temporary, I mean less than 10 or 20 years. It's been over a year now and I bought a book called City Quilts when I was in Kansas City.
I am hoping that by tomorrow I have it all cut out. I will let you know! That's my plan!
