My Studio

I had a lot of grand ideas to get my room absolutely perfect before sharing it on my blog.  However, I realized that my room is a work in progress.  If I waited until it was exactly how I wanted it, you would be waiting a very long time.  So with that said... 


Welcome to my new craft room which I have decided to now call my studio.  ;)  The picture above is what greets you as you walk in the door.

Directly to the left as you walk in is my closet.  I have plans to hang a flannel sheet on the wall on the left for a large hidden design wall.  My closet mostly houses my scrapbook supplies and papers.  Some batting and quilts are in the back corner.  My threads and a few other quilting things are in the large Kallax/Expedit from my old craft room.


As you walk in a little further, you can see my future design wall and cutting table.  I want my design wall to look like this one at Fresh Lemons Quilts.  My cutting table is about 4 feet by 6 feet and made with two Kallax units and a melamine coated board.  My table is on wheels and is surprisingly easy to move around without slipping when I am using the table. I  will share more details about my cutting table soon.


Just past the cutting table with the quilt rack is a play area.  I have Duplos in the storage cubes for my little visitors to play with.  The quilt rack is there so they don't hit their heads on the cutting table.  There is extra sewing space on the six foot table and my Tiara is right in front of the window.


Then to the right is my old Ikea corner desk and my sewing cabinet.  There is more sewing space at the corner desk.  I hope to be able to start a small quilting group in my new neighborhood.


Continuing to the right is my ironing station.  In the future I want it to look like this one at Hyacinth Quilt Designs.


Coming full circle is my old cutting table which now serves as a computer desk.  To the side of my computer desk is another six foot table  I can set up for even more sewing space.  I estimate that I can fit six more people in here comfortably.


That door leads to the landing at the top of the stairs where we entered.


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a tour of my new studio.


Monkey and the rest of the Quilt Kisses family hope you stop by again.


Hopefully this stack of mini quilts will be on the wall by then.


My studio is about 14.5 by 20 feet plus the closet and corner with my computer desk.  I love spending time in here.

XX,
Jasmine

P.S.  I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar.  Check them out to see what other quilts are up to.

  4. What a great space, Jasmine! I hope your sewing room continues to grow and become exactly the right fit for you. I really like your attention to detail (putting the quilt rack at the end of your cutting table so little's don't hit their heads!). Thank you so much for the tour.

  9. So happy for you. So jealous otherwise. If I could, I would move to your neighborhood just because I want to be invited to your studio. And also to ruffle Monkey's very short, very cute hair. He is adorable.
    Hugs,
    Preeti.

  10. Love love love. Have saved your post, showed my husband some of your stuff with the "remember this because I want that...and that...and that" when I get a studio again. I wish I was closer and I'd be over tomorrow to sew with you!

  11. Your studio is fabulous, Jasmine! Lucky you to have a whole room and the closet devoted to your crafts and sewing. I especially like your new cutting table with wheels and all the storage space underneath.

  16. I love it Jasmine.
    You have settled in nicely, I love how you have a good amount of space inbetween.
    You have a lot of getting up and walking, I know that is a good thing, other wise we sit all day.
    I am 61 (Oh gosh don't tell anyone) and I realize it is good to get up and move, sit stand sit stand. If you do not do this, you can get decrepit when you get older. I am excited to see the pictures over the next year as your studio evolved and settles into the perfect place. My studio is down stairs, and it is nice to have the tread mill with my built in "desk" to read my emails and gaze at blogs
    I love your room
    One day I will come over and sew with you :-D
