Ahh! to have a Studio!!

A most enjoyed space!..not to mention the newest addition to my home the new Avante' Quilting machine and frame! 

At last room for everything..and a little place to make a quick cup of tea too!

On a cold winters day nothing like a warm fire to cuddle up to!

This is a beautiful Quilt that I quilted on my new Quilting machine for a friend. I wish the photo's would better show you the detailed quilting.  

It is a "Block of the Month Sampler Quilt" so I quilted each of the 12 block differently as I felt they spoke to me...

The diagonal log cabin blocks and the outer borders were quilted in a large feather design.

As the fabric for this quilt was somewhat a heritage type fabric with large roses and soft but rich colours I felt that the feathers added to the classic feeling...

Looking forward to putting the next quilt on the frame!!
