Project #1 What To Do With the Window

Thank you all for your advice regarding my window in my baby girl’s room. After weighing all my options and not wanting to take on a project too large I decided to BUY (gasp!) and not make anything for the window. JcPenney was having their annual white sale and I got 3 sheers for $30. Yes that is waaaay spendy for me. But I really liked the shape of them and how they picked up on the curves of the mirror and Kayla’s name on the wall.

You can’t see it very well but I bought a cheap rod ($3) and then took off the brass end caps and added some crystal knobs to it. It was a simple touch but much better than the nasty brass end caps that were on there.

Project #2 Hang the QUILT

I am not sure if I mentioned that we are naming Kayla Elizabeth after Tim’s grandma Elizabeth. She is a beautiful and humble lady who has been a beacon of Christ’s love to her family. The special part about this quilt is she made it. It is a twin size so we will hang it on the wall until she is old enough to have a big girl bed. Then the quilt will be on her bed and after her Great Grandma Farrant (she turns 80 this week!) goes to heaven she will always have something sentimental made from the woman we hope she emulates.

I just wanted simple blocks made out of the fabric I chose. I am so pleased with how it turned out. THANK YOU GRANDMA!

This isn’t the greatest picture but this is what the quilting looks like on the back. I love the design and (of course!) the curves in it. It turned out way nicer than I could have imagined.

  1. I love the quilt and how precious that great grandma made it! At first I thought it was an old quilt that you found fabric to match and I thought that was amazing. But now I get it, and that’s even more precious that she made it just for your little girl. That is so cool!

  2. The quilt is so beautiful, and such a wonderful heirloom. As far as the valances, well…look at them as an investment. Unlike a window treatment that is very specifically ‘baby,’ these will grow with your little girl!
    Best of luck with the birth, and congratulations! Little girls are so much fun. I know…mine is 24 now and a wonderful person, LOL!

  3. oops, didn’t mean to delete the comment! I said, I love the sweet quilt, and how did you hang it? I hate those bulky ugly “quilt hangers” you buy at the fabric store. Is that some kind of towel bar or something? That’s a great idea to make it twin size, for use later.

  4. Oh, what a beautiful heirloom to remember and cherish her name sake.

    Looks like your ready for that baby girl to come!

  5. That quilt is beautiful! She must be so talented. And what a treasured keepsake for your little girl. How did she sew all of the swirly quilting? I have a hard time sewing a circle on my sewing maching!

  6. Very beautiful! I love the fabrics you chose. Nice job Grandma!

    Best wishes with your new little bundle. Her room is looking great so far…now you just need her to make it complete.

  7. 2 down….
    what a very special quilt. I’ve heard you both speak of her and I pray with you that your little baby girl will grow up to emulate her grandmother!

  8. That blanket is to die for! I absolutely love the fabrics you chose and your MIL did a beautiful job putting it together. The room looks great!
