{Post 1,488} Waiting for Binding Fabric

Here is the baby quilt, quilted!  I like the design.  Next time, I'll be sure to get those pebbles traced exactly right.  But I don't think the baby will be very picky.  The design is from a book called Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting by Christina Cameli.  I bought the Kindle version of the book.  I like to many of them.

This design reminds me of several abacus, a string of wooden blocks like ones a baby would string on a rawhide strip, etc.  It quilted up soooo quickly.

I ordered fabric to bind this one and the pastel one today on eBay.  

It measures 40" square.

Here is my guest room.  Still needs a lot of work, but my sister and niece are coming Friday to stay, and I had to get something set up down there.  Here are pictures of the side table and headboard in my process of painting them, then a picture of the room as it.  When we were setting up the box springs, mattress, sheets, etc., I forgot to put the bed skirt on.  I haven't planned anything for the walls or anything yet.  The framed star is something I made for my sister, and that is her reminder to take it with her when she leaves.

What we have so far.  The crib is leaving as soon as it's sold.  

In the corner is a twin bed with another twin mattress beneath it.  So the room could sleep 4 adults and a baby.

I love the way you quilted the baby quilt! I have been following Christina Cameli's blog on and off and like what I see there (even though it's mostly modern). I would like to get one of her books, but don't want to buy it. Your guest room is looking great! Love the black headboard as well as the quilts.

Love the pattern in this baby's fun to go outside our box just a little sometimes. :)
