A New Toy!

I love to quilt! it is my passion. the only thing(s) I love more is my husband and my family. I love seeing my kids and grands sleeping or snuggling under one of the quilts I made. I love it when my grandson Justin asks for another quilt because his is too short for his long legs. I love the process of picking out the fabric, cutting it out, sewing it together and making list of what I have accomplished. I am not a very good machine quilter and I have blamed it on the limitations of the set up I have now. A original HQ with a Juki machine. I soon lost interest in machine quilting because of how limited I was. That's my excuse!

Anyway, on one of the lists I frequent, someone offered their HQ16 with a table for free. Only thing was they had to come and take it down and take it away. I was lucky enough to be the first to respond. So I made plans with this generous woman and on Saturday, my husband, my son, my son in law and grandson all came with me to pick up my new toy.

Thank you guys for for taking apart this baby so carefully. and to the wonderful lady who is so very generous, thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am humbled to have been given this treasure. It might be a week or two before I get it set up. but right now I am reading everything I can so I will be ready to play!!


  1. Oh my gosh Lorene, I'm so glad for you ! How fun to be given this ! I thought I saw smoke on the eastern horizon with you zooming at the quilting on all those UFO's ! If you run out let me know !

  2. You lucky lady!! Hope you enjoy your new machine and quilt up a storm :)

  3. You will LOVE your machine!! I just bought the Avante in Feb and have been having SEW much fun with it. I'm on my 6th quilt now!! I have been a quilter for almost 20 years and finally I have my very own LA machine. Enjoy your "baby" and be sure and show us what you create!
