Moving things around.....

This quilt is one I made many years ago. The first thing I did when we moved into this house over 12 years ago was to hang this on my upstairs hallway wall. It has been there ever since. I want to get the guest room cleaned up and a bit restyled. It is just not working for me. I just find it so bland without a quilt. I am going to take this one down and try it on the guest bed.

I have one other quilt which I used to use on my own bed before I made the new one so I will test them both out and see which one I like best. I need to go buy some nightstands for this room and then perhaps move around a few items of furniture.

I have not been able to be posting many photos on this blog as the things I am making are Christmas gifts and exchanges. I don't want to spoil the surprise. Once I am finished doing these things, I will be able to get back to posting more regularly. I still have a few felt autumn pincushions to make and show you.

As always Heidi this quilt is gorgeous! I envy your quilt-making skills and wish we were closer so you could teach me! I can't wait to hear which one you choose.

I love everything you show no matter how old it is.
The quilt is gorgeous.
I am looking forward to seeing the gifts you are stitching for your exchanges.

You are such a fine quilter! I love the quilt and am sure that when you are done, the room will look as though it is right out of a magazine! They always do! :) Love you!
