Queenie’s New Adventure

We’re off on a new adventure…
Let me introduce you to Queenie’s new pride and joy
My very own Innova longarm quilting machine!!! Yay!!!
As you may recall, this year I’ve been playing with secondary design elements via sketching with thread when quilting my pieces together on my home sewing machine.  Admittedly, quilting on a stationary machine has its challenges and can be time intensive depending on the size and complexity of project.
With my new awesome Innova the quilt is stationary and the machines moves effortlessly on two sets of rails allowing for sewing in all directions. The potential for creative loveliness infinitely abounds.
This machine is absolutely a dream come true and has really lit a creative quilting fire within.  Currently, a crib quilt is on the Innova all set and ready for creative quilting.  (More snaps to come as this project evolves.) This quilt is for a special little guy who will be making his grand appearance on the world’s stage in July.
 
All the thank you-s in the whole wide world go to my husband who made this dream machine possible. How many husbands do you know who would allow a once upon a time living room to be transformed into a quilting studio. Not too many I know. I am truly blessed with THE PERFECT HUSBAND!!! 
A standing ovation and
hardly round of applause for Honey Man!!! Yay!!!
Until next time…
Have a great day!
