Time to Reconfigure the Sewing Room

One of the roadblocks to progress over the last few weeks has been that if my primary machine (a Janome 6600P) is set up for piecing, then it really isn’t available for machine quilting, and vice versa.  So, today I reluctantly set about reconfiguring my space so I can have my Pfaff set up for piecing and my Janome set up with the bobbin holder, foot and thread for quilting. 

My Hearts Abloom wall quilt has been on my design wall for months as I keep putting off the quilting part of the project.  It’s small enough that I can do it at home rather than make a special trip to the ranch for the HQ, but it still has been on the back burner for too long. 

I also have several Jane Stickle blocks prepped for the handwork portion of the applique and my accumulation of blocks completed in June is growing slowly.

It will be great to have a piecing station and a quilting station! You'll be getting all sorts of things accomplished!

every once in a while changing the stuff around is good-I like having my 2 machines-one for piecing and one for machine applique (like my older Pfaff's applique stitch better)

Having two machines set up and ready to go sounds wonderful. Wish I had the space for that! Love your little wall hanging and congrats on continuing to rack up the finished DJ blocks.
