I'm juggling a lot of WiPs lately, but my priority right now is a project I'm putting together for Quilting for Calgary.
Most of the pink fabrics in this quilt were generously donated for the cause and I had a great time turning them into something modern. I am typically not a huge bubblegum girl so this has been an amazing way to break out of my safe zone. Together with a few red-pink fabrics from my stash and a whole lot of gray prints, this quilt has really developed into something fun.
The donated fabrics were cut into 3.5" WOF strips, so I knew right away I wanted to come up with a pattern that would maximize their size. While debating my options, an amazing large scale plus quilt by Leanne (from She Can Quilt) hit my bloglovin' feed and I knew it was a perfect pattern choice.
Here's a quick peak at my two Janomes side by side (4100 and 8200 models respectively). I apologize for the poor lighting in the evening shot but I swear this photo serves a purpose. Since I do the majority of my sewing in the evenings, I am especially excited about all of the LED lights that this new machine has. Between that and the 11" throat space I am absolutely smitten. Everything beyond that is absolute icing on the cake and I am so beyond thrilled.
Now I hope that you can excuse me while I skip my way back to my sewing room.
