My husband snapped this picture laaaate one night when we finally finished connecting and installing my 36 1/2 foot long sewing desk. Isn't it beautiful? I feel so lucky. I now have room to set up all of my machines (sewing machines, sergers, & coverstitch), plus my laptop. And there is even room for a kid to sit and do homework, yay!
I'm busy unpacking and getting ready to show you more about how we built my 36' desk (post coming Monday), but in the meantime I wanted to show you this awesome new iron that the folks at Reliable sent me... the Maven 100IS.
This year Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine started a Block-of-the-Month series that started in March — the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Sampler. 48 blocks were picked from ALL issues of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks and reduced to 6'' for this special sample quilt pattern.
The bow tie quilt block makes the perfect quilt for a baby boy, I think. It's sweet and simple and goes with just about any fabric. But it makes an adorable little girl quilt too... so let's not discriminate!
