Quilting Olympics--Go Baby!!

If you know me, you are sick to death hearing about my sewing room project that has been going on FOREVER. Well, maybe just a year or two.
It all started when I bought an HQ16 quilting machine and had to keep it in my dining room for 4 years because there was no way it was going to fit into my sewing space upstairs. My husband came up with the idea of moving my sewing room into our master bedroom (almost twice the size) and making the sewing room into our bedroom. Well, who am I to argue with an idea like that?

The HQ16 now residing in my new sewing space 

Of course, it wasn't going to be THAT easy! Along with the switcheroo, we removed the popcorn ceilings, replaced the carpet with hard wood flooring, put in all new moldings and painted the walls. I should add that, aside from the painting, my two sons and my spouse did it all themselves. It was quite an undertaking.

BUT, the whole point of this post is that I told my story on the Moda blog: The Cutting Table , and I won a Go Baby cutting system! How cool is THAT!! Thank you Moda Quilting Olympics Judges for awarding me the GOLD medal in the "Square Footage Takeover" event!
