Featured Quilt Of The Week ~ 3

Here is another quilt that I made a few years ago. I decided to redo my bedroom so I started out with the quilt. The pattern is actually a Quilt Of The Month pattern from Wal-mart. I also bought the fabric there too. It is called "Sunny Days" I also made the pillows and curtains to go with it. I made the quilt and fell in love with it, so I decided to use it in my bedroom. That is how it all started.

I like to have killed myself. I got this big idea that I was going to completely change my bedroom in ONE weekend. So here is how it went. I got the quilt back from the longarmer and loved it. Yellow was not one of my favorite colors at the time so I was shocked that I was thinking of painting the walls. I had the bed in storage, the bed and antique dresser on the left was my great grandmothers. So I had Richard help me bring them in. Made the pillows and curtains, but I bought the dust ruffle, painted the walls, hung up the plates that I had been collecting and I finished. I had to actually paint the walls twice. The first shade of yellow that I had made it look like a big LEMON, so I painted over it. Now I love it! Oh and I actually have the original old metal springs on the bed. It is soooooo comfy!!!

I have enjoyed looking at your plate collection in other photos.

That is a wonderful room! The quilt really "suits" that bed. I love antiques, too! My husband is one....lol...at least that's what I tell him. Good luck with the cat thing, you are one brave woman to face your fears head first! I'm proud of you for doing it.

I love the quilt. It's so pretty and dresses up the room nicely. I used to have a big wire framed bed like that when I was a child.

It's sooo pretty. It reminds me of the fabrics in my Mom's sunshine quilt.

I had a yellow room growing up...ever year it got brighter!

I think yellow makes a room look so refreshing and inviting. You've done a wonderful job.

Great room. I don't think I could paint a room yellow but it does look nice. I remember having a yellow room when I was little. My mom was so proud of it. I liked it too. My husband really doesn't like yellow so I know we won't be painting anything yellow.
Nice quilt and accessories too.

I love the room and the quilt. I know about taking on a huge project. My bedroom still isn't finished. We tried getting all the walls painted before the furniture was delivered but we didn't make it. There is still a ring around the top of the walls that need to be touched up. I keep thinking we will buy crown molding and just cover it up, but that hasn't been budgeted in yet.
