East Dakota Quilter

The Big Move… and a New Sewing Room!


I loved living in Chicago; however, I am settling happily into my new place in the Washington D.C. Metro Area. The proximity to other destinations along the east coast is really exciting. Perhaps best of all? My new sewing room!

My boyfriend built a pegboard for my sewing supplies, and I finally have someplace to hang the only oil painting I’ve ever made so Myrna Loy is not smirking at you while you watch TV, use the restroom, etc.


Here’s a close-up of some of the things I keep on my pegboard:


 I have a place to spread out my Marcelle Medallion while I’m working on it so it doesn’t get crushed:


The room is doubling for now as a guest room, and there is some spillover with extra books. (*cough cough* The dresser might be full of fabric, though. And all the plastic tubs and blue crates, too.)


Here’s my sewing machine. She’s on her last leg, but goodness, I love her!


I even have room for some family heirlooms!



I still have a lot of unpacking and organizing to do (and wall space to fill – yay!), but I love that I have a dedicated creative space. I hope to get back on track with this blog and begin to post more projects in the next few weeks.

  1. Welcome to the DC area! I live on the Maryland side, hope you should come north to Frederick City on one of your field trips. Love your Marcelle Medallion quilt– looks like it’s almost done!

    • You’re too sweet! Frederick is definitely on my list of places to visit. I live on the Maryland side, too, and want to eat at Bryan Voltaggio’s restaurant (Volt). The Marcelle Medallion quilting is taking FOREVER–especially since it’s the first quilt I’ve done myself, but I love it more than any other quilt I’ve made and am enjoying the process… most of the time. 🙂
