Finally, the Move!

Aha! We are finally in our new home and loving it.

It includes a specially-designed quilt closet for storing finished quilts on wire shelving with good ventilation.

There are vents at the base of the doors to let air in

And a vent on the side wall at the top to let air out, encouraging passive circulation.

And it’s nice to know the quilts will be well treated now, because some of them had a little accident on the trip here.

Luckily the boxes that got damp contained finished quilts. I just washed and dried them and they are just fine.

The rest of the quilts (for the second part of the move) were packed like this.

So, once I can get my studio set up, the quilt making will begin again! Here’s a picture of the studio

And the special knob for the studio door

There’s a house attached to the studio, as well as a yard.

If anybody is looking for a great builder in the N.C. triad area, you should know that our house was built by My Granville Home of Greensboro. They were wonderful! Feel free to contact either me or the Granville people with questions.

  1. It looks like the dream studio, Mary! I am so happy for you to get moved in and ready to start your quilting adventure again from this wonderful space! I definitely want a tour when I come through the area!

  2. Yippee! Zippy’s moved! This is fantastic news – a long time coming, eh?
    Just curious, what’s the little cubby between the large window on the right and the second to last window on the left for?

    • Hoo-boy, the cubby. The architect added multiple such cubbies and after the house was framed we had them ALL removed except for 3 we kept to kind of break up this large space. It was an expensive way to learn I don’t read plans as well as I thought!

      • …it happens to the best of us! It’ll be interesting to see what you do end up using it for down the line as you settle into your fantastic new space.

  3. Seriously worth the wait (at least to those of us viewing that closet and that studio!) Wow congratulations and you are going to have so much fun setting up your studio. Look forward to more images as it progresses and I will be here drooling! I bet some serious creativity will come out of that new studio! πŸ™‚

  4. Wow! That is some wonderful space!!! Congratulations and I know you will enjoy that fully!!! Such great light and from so many angles!!! I’m sure that was in the plan. Love the door knob too.

  5. I will just admit to a fit of intense envy. Oh what a studio — complete with knob! Not to mention your state of the art quilt storage cupboard. I am sure you are going to spend many happy, creative hours in this beautiful space.
