I had a very productive weekend! Robbie and his dad went on a camping trip, so I was home with nothing to do but work on my projects. Robbie thought it would be a great time to paint his wall and finish up his quilt, and I agreed. So the red wall was completed this weekend, so it could air out before he got home. Who likes to sleep in a room with paint smell?? I also finished his quilt. And I thought I would share some lessons learned during the process.
So now the only thing left is his bed skirt, window treatments and fabric for that lonely little round table. I also have to paint his dresser and book shelves. Oh and he wants me to paint a big "G" on that red wall, but I haven't decided if that's the best idea yet. I'll be thinking about that while I'm working on the other stuff.
Incidentally, I hand quilted this one, because there was too much fabric for my machine. It's just not wide enough, and there is no place for the fabric to go. It actually wasn't that hard nor did it take a lot of time. Also, I didn't have to worry about the layers moving as much. That was definitely a plus. I had someone quilt Robbie's first one, and that can get a bit expensive.
