I am in the (LONG) process of decorating the boys bedroom. I started these 2 twin sized quilts in September of 2010. They have been ready to be quilted for 6 months at least. So why don’t I just get it done? Well, I am a little nervous to quilt them myself. I was hoping to have them professionally quilted, but I should probably just do it since I am trying to save my pennies for a new sewing machine! So here I am committing to you (my 3 very appreciated readers 🙂 ) that I will quilt them when I am done with:
- Table Runner for TCSMQG
- Quilt Blocks for do. Good Stitches
- Sliced Coin Quilt
In my plan for their room is:
- Quilts x 2 (waiting to be quilted)
- Bed-skirts (fabric bought, pattern found, just waiting for some time)
- Paint (we cannot agree on colors)
- Build a few shelves for the walls (summer project)
- A Map Quilt for their wall (done)
- Curtains (done)
So here are the Curtains. (I took this picture a month ago. We do not have this much snow anymore !! Yay!) They are made with some chocolate-brown linen I got on my last trip to Anderson Fabrics Outlet in Blackduck, MN with my Mom & Sister. The colorful bits are leftover scraps from the quilts I made for the boys. The best part about these curtains is the blackout lining. No light gets through! It’s awesome! The boys are very early risers so I wanted their room to be as dark as possible so they could get more sleep.
I found this panel at Joann’s & instantly wanted to make a wall hanging for the boys’ bedroom. This is the first thing I quilted with my new walking foot! I just did some straight line quilting, nothing fancy. The boys are now fighting about which wall to hang this on.
Aren’t they sweet?! I can’t wait for their room to be all finished up. We have lived here for 4 years now…so it’s been a long time coming!
