Custom made insert surrounds the sewing machine and sits flush with the top of the workstation.Having this workstation makes quilting just so much easier; I am seriously spoiled. The weight of the quilt is well-supported by the large workspace thereby avoiding most of the tugging and dragging that can result in irregular stitches, uneven quilting and even distortion of the finished quilt.
Here is a view from above my workspace giving a better indication of just how large my work surface is. I have also positioned my sewing machine directly in front of a large window providing much natural light and winter sun.
Spring has arrived though, and I am in the mood for a quilt project that I can immerse myself in. I have chosen a more challenging quilt pattern with each finished block having 32 different templates. I have copied, cut, pasted on to lightweight cardboard, and color coded the templates. A test block is in progress.
More details to follow soon.
