The Bedroom Project - part 6

Tony (and the big boys) got the ceiling sheetrock up, mudded, taped and mudded. He'll sand it today.

Luke and I got half of the room painted it's first coat! All of the trim will be white.
It's coming along!!!

The sunlight is so bright the color is not showing well.  Let me try again to show the color.  It's a very pretty color, I promise!

Caleb and Sam  have plaid comforters that they have had for years and they really love them.  They wanted to pick a color where they could still use these comforters.  The sunlight reflects differently off the wall than it does the fabric -- trust me, they match ;)

I'm going to make duvet covers for the comforters for the other twin beds in that reddish/cranberry color.  And I'll make quilts from the plaid fabric and the cranberry for the toddler bunks :)  We have sheets in the plaid that I'll use to make insulated Roman shades for all four windows.  Well, for two at least... I'm pondering a different idea for the double window since it will be on the little boys side of the room!

My first attempts at free motion quilting

Is that what it's called? I called it 'squiggle sewing' LOL

It's a gift set for Ben and RuthAnn from our church:

My first ever table runner:

RuthAnn said she wanted coffee-themed stuff for her kitchen :)
