QA Studio Tour: Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Welcome to the Quilting Affection Studio Tour on the Quilt Qwazy Queens blog hop. 


My studio is not fabulously decorated, but it is a really nice setup.  Before we get started be sure to check out the bottom for the list of bloggers on this blog hop and enter to win for fabulous prizes.


I have two rooms for my quilting studios in my house, since I don’t have one room large enough to be both my sewing and longarm studios.  So we will start with my sewing studio.  Most of my furniture in my studio is Ikea furniture. 

Follow Me! Let the Tour Begin



As you enter my sewing room from the Kitchen/Dining Room you will see my desk on the left, and my girls sleeping area on the right, and the patio doors to the backyard.

 Starting from the left side and work around the room.


This section here is my desk, where all my designs and writing come alive.  My husband just upgraded my computer from a laptop to this nice desktop and 27” monitor.  Above my desk is a couple of bulletin boards made from batting and insulation board.  The top bulletin board is to keep pictures of my in-progress designs and past designs.  Not all of them are up right now, since they will be soon to be released patterns (Secret).  The bottom board is where I keep all my important and reference papers. 


Next to my desk is where my favorite and main sewing machine sits.  My Bernina B580 is where I do my sewing most of the time. The quilt hanging is my newest Mini-Madness quilt for Island Batik Ambassadors.  You can visit my blog on the quilt HERE
  

 Next, is the Ikea Wardrobe Cabinet, I store all my fabric yardages, unfinished and need to quilted samples and unfinished projects (UFO’s).  The top shelf is packed full of UFO’s, I have a list of them all above my desk, I have already finished two so far, this year.  On top of the cabinet you will see two sewing machines, the one in front is my first sewing machine, a New Home, and the other is an Antique New Home Sewing Machine. 



This is my second machine, I bought in 2011.  My Janome 7700 is a great machine, I love doing binding and quilting on this machine. 


Next to my Janome is my Light table my wonderful husband made me couple years ago, I love it! The table is made of thin wood and LED lights from Lowes.


Above the light table I have my Bloc_Loc® Rulers hung up for easy convenience (I really love these rulers). My flying geese rulers are hanging on my ruler rack that my dad made me.  The ruler rack is used for all my rulers that I use on a day by day bases.


I have lots of storage space with Ikea Expedit shelving units.  My cutting table is made with Ikea 4-Expedit shelving units. The cubes are place on plywood and rollers. The table part is made from 2 Galant table tops. 


 I used Ikea Cubes and Rubbermaid containers for storing my fabric all around the table.  One end is used for all my reference books.  



For my huge and well used ironing board, I bought at a quilt show couple years ago, I placed it on top of another Expedit shelving unit, and used the Ikea rollers underneath so it is easy to move around when I want to get to my design wall, which is made just like my bulletin boards, but not cut down.


Finally, when you turn around you can see my TV(for viewing pleasure) and were my girls sleep (Two Snoodles) when I’m in the sewing room.

My Longarm Studio 



I have a APQS Millinium Longarm, in another room close by. and love her.   I share this space with my husband due to his desk is set up. When Millie is not in use I cover her up with sheets to protect her. 

Well that’s my studio tour, I hope you enjoyed it and gave you storage ideas.

  12. I've never been to an Ikea... and that's almost true... I've still never been to one in the USA ... only in Italy... I guess I missed all the great things you can pick up at Ikea, but it made me crazy walking around the store, so I got out as quick as I went in...well... not quite true, but I couldn't actually wait to get out of Ikea... and I've never been back, and not likely to ever go back although I freely admit they do have some great things, I don't like having to walk thru an entire store to find what I want.. I like to get in and get out.. period...

    Either or, I do love your studio space, it's very well designed and quite fun. I love the ruler rack your dad made you, and would love to have a cutting table like that. :)
