I have been busy finishing up a lot of little projects – like the runner and topper I am going to share today. They were both made for our master bedroom.
We have this long white dresser that needed some color. It also needed some protection from all the things Joel likes to throw – I mean set – on the dresser. White furniture seems to mark up so easy and runners are they perfect way to protect the finish.
I have trouble photographing in our house. It always looks so much darker in the photos than it does in person. This outside shot shows the colors a bit better:
The pattern can be found in my Angles with Ease book. I have to admit that I like the original better (shown below).
I think if I would have totally mixed up my pieces, rather than laying two of the same print next to each other, it would have helped with the fact that I don’t have enough navy prints in my stash! One more would have balanced it out a bit better. Must add that to my shopping list . . .
My second project for today is this topper:
It’s from my Summer Stars pattern. I actually prefer this one to the original topper shown below. For me, scrappier is always better.
I always find it so interesting how different things look done up in different fabrics!
Please ignore my arm in this shot. I am trying to hold the topper up to the window so you can see the quilting better.
I used an echo design in the star points. I think it has a modern look that goes well with this modern color combination. I love the little pebble quilting – though I do not like doing it. This topper is quite small, so it’s the perfect thing for these small cream spaces.
I made the topper to go on this little table, though again my photo is so bad you can hardly see it! (if anyone has any suggestions for shooting photos in a north facing room, please leave them in the comments!)
One more little thing – We had our family pictures done yesterday. The photographer sent us a little sneak peak of this shot from our bedroom. I would never have thought to pose us with a quilt for a family photo. What fun!
Thanks for stopping in today!
