Painting is done!

The painting is done! 

Before...


After... 


This is the best wall we have to hang quilts on. Making the decision on how to hang them up has been the hardest part of this process. I think I have settled on the curtain rods with the clips like I am using for the window curtains. ~ Speaking of which, I am not sold on the curtains that I am using at this time, but they are better than nothing. ~ I am going to run out and look for a rod today. =)

What I am super excited about are my new pillows! 

This one is my favorite! I used the house and tree pattern from Lori Holt's new book Quilty Fun. Isn't it a happy pillow? =) 


I decided to not make the throw pillows matchy matchy. I plan on making several covers for each of them so I can change them out as the whim strikes or even with the seasons. 



I have a few more pillows to make new covers for. =) But first, I want to get a quilt on the wall! 

Have a happy Tuesday, everyone!!

  1. Change is a lot of work, but it really pays off when it is all done. The pillows are really nice. I need to get some things finished to be able to play with the extras. Chris

  3. Did you know? those 3M picture hanging strips work great for hanging quilts. I have a huge appliqué Halloween quilt I hang with 6 strips. just pull the tabs off the wall when you want to take it down. No damage to wall or quilt.

  16. Oh, that looks so nice!! :-) What an improvement. The pillows are such a nice pop or color too. So pretty.

    Just a thought about the curtains/valances: Maybe you could make some out of one of the fabrics that is common to some of the quilt projects you're putting in the room, maybe a polka dot or something a little subdued so that it doesn't take away from the gorgeous quilt I know you're going to hang on that wall. :-)
