Usually I am the one redecorating, but this time it is my mom. She made a new quilt, shams, dust ruffle, and curtains for her room, all out of Artful Home. She also repainted the walls a different shade of blue. I love how it turned out, so I asked if I could share it with all of you. I couldn’t find a before picture, but here is the after picture:
The photos turned out a little dark, as I have trouble with lighting indoors. This angle is a little better. The bed skirt is black, so it really doesn’t show up in the photo, but it was made using Mom’s easy method. (click here to see a tutorial).
The pattern is Starlit Evening, found in my Living Large 2 book. It’s one of those quilts that looks really challenging, but it is stripe-pieced and all the diagonal seams nest. However, there are no short-cuts for making it king sized!
The shams our made using the “bound with ties” pattern from our Shams with Style book. The stripe is actually applied like binding, making it so easy to do – and that means you can totally avoiding having to do piping.
I also borrowed a little more of Mom’s show and tell. She recently finished up this quilt.
It’s called Patchwork Posies and can also found in the Living Large 2 book. The fabric is from our “Whimsy” collection that came out last month. BTW, it’s the perfect pattern for fat eighths or fat quarters.
That’s all “my” show-n-tell for now – so have a good weekend!
