My new mattress and box springs were delivered this morning and I got the bed made this afternoon. These boys are sure that there is plenty room for all of us!
I’ve been wanting to buy a queen size bed for a couple of years. And in anticipation of that I’ve been in progress on two quilts that I’ll switch out on that bed.
My Jewel Frames quilt is the first one that I worked on for a larger bed. The blocks have been done for some time, but I haven’t put it together because I want to make sure it will fit the new bed.
Here it is on the design wall.
I’m planning on adding substantial borders of Philip Jacobs Shaggy in black to get it to the size I need. The cornerstones are also made of that shaggy.
I bought this piece of Kaffe’s Uzbekistan for $4 per yard several years ago with the plan of using it for the backing of this quilt.
That’s such a cool design and I love it in this green color way. But I might give my left arm for 10 yards of that in red! I managed to get my hands on several yards of the red a couple of years ago. I’m hoarding it selfishly.
The other quilt that I have saved for this new bed is this one I made from my own KFC fabric selection on the Moss Garden pattern.
I just love this quilt and I found it really fun to make. I love those great big blocks that show these bold prints so well.
This quilt top measures 97×97. I’m not sure it’s wide enough for this bed. I might need more drop and might have to add more borders on the sides.
I had to go to the post office and my actual real work office tonight, so I didn’t get any sewing done.
My yard guy was here working all day. The last thing he did was power wash my patio. I can’t wait to see it tomorrow in daylight! It needed this power wash badly.
I’m off to bed for my first good night sleep in spaciousness! I have to be at work at 7 am!
