« Fat Quarter Winners Book Tour Week Three-Let's Get To Know Monique | Main | A New Project. Yes, It's Another Baby Quilt.... »

April 19, 2011



Wow! The studio is going to be fantastic! I would look to add a day bed or something for the baby to nap in case you have babysitting time. I don't think it matters what kind of cabinets you go for as long as there are lots of them! I think the layout matters most. I know theres a quilting space book but I can't remember the name of it. But it had ideas for all size studios.

Hi Nicole. I would love to be in your drawing. All the quilts in the book look like ones I want to do and I have never tried the rulers. You are very lucky to get a house that has been kept clean! I would go opt for Ikea cupboards too. Nancy in WI

What a wonderful sewing space! I'm currently debating moving my sewing stuff to the finished room of our basement. It's twice the size. I have to add heat and air conditioning so that will be my big expense. There are quite a few good websites with quilt studio ideas. I googled designing quilting rooms. There are also some great books out there. I think I would go with the Ikea storage items. Folks seem real pleased with their items. Keeping my fingers crossed. I'd especially love to win the rulers:) I'm going back to read the comments on your post to see if I discover some ideas for my "relocation" plans:) Take care!


I would love to win the book and rulers. I am enjoying seeing the featured quilts.


I love your blog, but I tend to stay in the shadows because your creativity and expertise makes me feel somewhat intimidated.

I'm so happy for your new studio. We are currently looking at property ourselves and my only criteria is to have a "studio just like Nicole's."

My daughter just recently got an Ikea Varde cabinet and it is great. She is using it as a cutting table and for storage. Thanks for the giveaway.

I'd probably go with Ikea so you can move them around. What if you find custom cabinets take away 2" of space you need for a long arm machine? I'd be a grumpy gal!


I'd go with Ikea. They have great stuff and it's very functional and affordable.


So jealous of your new studio! I would go with Ikea - they have great units.


I would love to be included in the draw for the book.

Look forward to seeing this space transformed


The rulers and book would be fantastic to win! I am redoing a sewing space too. I think I am going with iKEA. I have seen some great sewing studios on line and they all used IKEA. So glad that everything is working for you and your family! I moved from MidWest to Maine 3 years ago to be near children and grandchildren. New job, new home etc. It is such a gift to be close to the are going to have the time of your life!

I would love a chance to win this book. The rulers would be a great addition.


Save space for the quilting machine! That's one thing I wish I had held out for when we were house hunting. I have enjoyed seeing the previews of the book, looks like a good one!


I hope you enjoy the journey of designing your own quilting studio. I know it will look great from the pictures you have shown of your present house. I would love to win the book and rulers.


Hi Nicole, make the floor 'soft and comfortable'. You would be surprised to find out how much your feet hurt standing all day...oh wait, you already do that at work! Well, no advice from me then. ;0

I would love to have the fit to be square rulers! ;0


Hi Nicole please enter me in the draw I would sooo love to win
and as for your new sewing space wow you are going to have many happy sewing hours in there I cant wait to see what you do

Love your blog Nicole. So happy for you to get your own quilting studio!!!


LOVING this giveaway! My friend just did her sewing room and it is awesome! The things I really loved about it was all the natural light. She also had a great design wall with track lighting above it to highlight her current work in progress. Aother great thing was the electrical outlet on the floor just under her sewing table!! No tripping over cords! Thanks for the chance to win!

Would love to win that book! And I will be enjoying the updates on your move and remodel, too! Looks like a daunting task. I'm glad it's you and not me! I don't think I'd have the energy to move!

Andrea S.

What a nice giveaway!! I love Monique's patterns. I've done a few, and they are always so easy to follow and accurate. Thanks for doing this book tour, it is so much fun to see what everyone is doing. Good luck on your move.

I have a sewing room I never use. It is too small. I use the family room where I can spread out and leave my fabric everywhere and no one minds because it's just me and DH. :) I would love, love, love a copy of the book and rulers!! Thanks for the giveaway. You will have so much fun designing your quilt studio! Can't wait to see what you decide to do with it.

I am happily anticipating the joy you will have in a newly outfitted quilting studio. I waited many years for my own space. I started out on the kitchen table, graduated to a 5th-hand desk and then an assortment of tables. My wonderful son-in-law built me a cutting table to die for and hubby installed big-box-store cabinets and I'm in heaven. Now all I need is time!


Hi Nicole, CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is going to be one FABULOUS studio! We are all envious of your new space, and it's going to be great fun to see what you do with it. Ikea always has beautiful storage, so I'd vote for that. Thank you for the chance to win the fantastic giveaway. The patterns look wonderful, and the rulers look like staples for any quilter! I hope you pick me! All the best from Vicki in Stamford, CT


Wow - looks like a great space, even if it's not decorared quite the way you will be decorating it :) I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the space!


I would love to win this great book! Thanks for giving me a chance to try! :)
