I loooooove the look of this artist's basement work space :)
She is in the middle of constructing a new one which you can see at http://blog.lisacall.com/
Lisa gave away a bunch of her scraps to a friend who turned them into a quilt and sent her a picture. What do I love about that ...... she did the quilting with the dog feed up and basically straight rows of stitching:) Woohoo :)
Sorry people but most quilting instructions say to quilt with the dog feed down (my machine won't do that at the moment) or else there will be serious horrors on the back side. Also most quilts I've seen seem to be heavily and swirly stitched so straight is refreshing to my eyes.
