Thank you Marian Pena of Seams to be Sew for hosting the hop and for all the work that you have done!
Thank you also to Northcott Fabrics for the lovely fabric that you have donated to us to use in our rows.
I chose my sewing room for my happy place. It truly is my Happy Sewing Room! All I have to do is walk into it and I am a happier person. I don't even have to sew! :-) I have so many things that I love surrounding me there, I can't help but smile. I even have what I call my command center there, which includes my computer and my kindle fire tablet to supply my music. And don't forget the warm cup of coffee or tea. Just perfect!
Here is a picture of my row - both the original sample(on right) and the one on the left made with some of the beautiful fabrics from Northcott Fabrics.
I found when I was sewing my second row, that I had turned the half square triangle corner blocks of the star wall hanging the opposite direction. I decided to leave it that way. It gives it a little bit of a different look. If there is one thing that I found when quilting, mistakes can be your new creation! Don't sweat it! It may work in your favor!
I thought that I would share some pics of my sewing room with you.
I added borders with spool cornerstones to finish my row into a wall hanging. I think that this would look lovely hanging in your sewing room or on your sewing room door.
You could also just make the sewing machine block, which is a 12" finished block, and use it in any quilt that uses blocks that finish to 12". Add two of your favorite 12" blocks to both sides of the sewing machine block and you have a great table runner.
Add borders and you can have a small wall hanging or make it into a pillow.
I have included instructions for the borders and 12" sewing machine block with the row pattern.
This is the lovely fabric that I received from Northcott Fabrics:
The two prints are from the Heritage Quilting line and the white on white that I used for the background is Beatrice 21537-11
