As my sisters two other daughters turned around the age of 3 to 5 I made each of them a bed quilt. Proud to say they both still have them and even with heavy usage they are still in decent shape. Suzanne went into a double bunk bed situation though so I never made her quilts.
So last year (I think? Maybe the year before?) I finally made quilts for her beds. Yep one twin and one full. She and I jazzed up her room a bit that year.
First here are the quilts:
Suzanne picked the colors red and green for her quilt. Yikes – how to not make it look like Christmas? Well I mixed in yellow and oranges as you can see and multitudes of greens. The full size quilt is a wacko log cabin and the twin is three stripes. I then also made a bed skirt for the bottom, and the curtain topper over on the side. I was inspired by Denise Schmidt for these – she has a great book out on her quilt patterns and a website.
Suzanne did the four hangings by her bed – they are like cork boards on one side and paintings on the other. And we loaded the room with paper stars…two reasons Suzanne is a native of Texas (each girl was born in a different state!) and she loves acting – stars seemed appropriate. You can see some on the window covering. Like that covering? Made that and the bed dust ruffle too. It was a BUSY trip.
