New baby in the studio!



Here's my new "baby"--she's not even named yet. And here I am, pushing her to perform already. This is quilt #2 actually. I was so excited to get my very first quilt done, I didn't even take a picture. It wasn't all that exciting, although it did finish a 9 year old UFO. I didn't like working on the practice sandwich as it's so uninspiring. So I thought I would hop right in.







This is a closer look at those Christmas packages. They were a block swap my small Friday night quilt group did in 2004!! I'm never going to get that far behind again on quilting since I have this new machine! Okay, I shouldn't have put that in writing, but I'm hoping it will be true!



















This is my 3rd quilt in the frame in 3 days! I love this machine. I'm frantically looking through all my UFO's to see what's close enough to be able to quilt! This is a good thing! :)

How exciting. I have to admit I love not quilting on my sewing machine. This is the first picture I've seen of the HQ16 machine. Glad you're getting lots done.
