New stuff

Today I found out that this quilt that I did for a customer last year won a red ribbon at the Augusta,ME quilt show this week! That kind of news always makes me happy!
Well, here it is. What a difference a table can make! The only thing is, there is no batting roller! Yikes! What to do with all those rolls of batting?? My guest closet already has 2 rolls in it. The 2 rolls that were under my old table are now standing up against the wall in my guest room. I'm used to storing 2 rolls under the table. Well never fear, Don is going to make me a roller for under the table...just soon as he gets 'round to it'... lol. But never fear, I will P&M so much that I bet he'll do it this weekend!

Don't scrutinize my feathers too much...I was concentrating on tension, not form.

My biggest concern about getting a new machine, was that my old premier stitched PERFECTLY. I mean perfect tension, perfect everything. I could run any kind of thread without issues. Well, I spent the afternoon tweaking the tension on the new machine and playing with different threads and it is fine! Whew...what a relief. And the new machine has some new features that the old one didn't. Not to mention a warranty! And my dealers were great as always. Happy, happy, happy! Very glad I went with the custom table; fits in my studio, and has the extra space I need.
All in all, a very good day!


  1. Deb....I am so jealous. I want one! Oh, and your feathers are perfect.

  2. Congratulations on your new machine and your customer's ribbon. I hope to make such gorgeous feathers some day. Good luck with your new baby!

  3. Deb,
    The table looks great and you can always get a length of PVC to go under your table. If you get the thick walled kind, it will be strong enough.
    Have fun with the new baby!!!!

  4. Your feathers look great! Congratulations on the ribbon!
