Multi Functional Space!

My wood shop has now been downsized to eliminate space for any cabinet making.  Long arm quilter is now taking that space.  I still have some stuff to eliminate but I am already "multi tasking".  Currently I am switching back and forth between sewing squares for a large quilt, practicing machine quilting on the long arm quilter,  wood carving, and painting the carvings.

One observation worth sharing is that the language one may use when accidentally cutting the nose off a carving, and when quilting squares do not match up is virtually the same.

Looks good - now to make quilt racks to hold all those upcoming quilts...

Thanks for the posting. I've got lots more practice on scrap stuff before I load up a for real quilt...

Okay, looks like the quilting has taken over more space. I'm wondering how you will make arks and keep everything dust free? Please don't tell me you are not going to make anymore wonderful arks! My son is doing leather sewing in the garage so all the wood cutting is now done outside and what a process to get the saws and drills in the driveway and back again. I think for the winter my potting shed will become the saw dust area. I'm wondering if I'll get it back next spring. Love the yellow quilt block too!

Holee, I think I have a good balance between quilting, carving and ark making. I may have to move the saw into the garage, but so far, not much of a problem. All of the power tools have dust collection ports and I have several shop vac type of things that I hook up. There will always be dust, but maybe I can manage it. Will always make the Noah's Arks..
