The debut on the bed..............

Here it is in my sunshine yellow guest bedroom.  I think it will reside here when I get the binding on.  I love trip around the world quilts.








The view from the foot of the bed is nice too.  I embroidered the Laurel Burch cats on my curtains 7 years ago and thought I would make a quilt of Laurel's fabrics for this bed.  Who knows, that might happen yet too.  Hopefully it will be before the curtains rot.

Someone asked about my longarm machine.  Here is my post about it.  Here is the post about my other quilting machine, a straight stitch only.  The set up in my main level studio can be found by clicking on the word Studio on the Label list on the right side bar of my blog.

Simply stunning Wanda. It looks perfect in your sunshine yellow guest room and it even matches the colours of the Laurel Burch cats on the curtains.

Quilt looks wonderful. It really is nice looking in the Yellow room. I reread your posts about your sewing studio. The chair with arms, The arms can be taken off by unscrewing the screws underneath. All of the office chairs are made that way.I got one with arms and we just took them off. I know this wasn't a recent post so hopefully your resolved the problem. Chris
