Nora's Room: Quilt
I honestly am not much of a seamstress. I have had no real training, but have been learning some things by taking on little projects here and there. Thanks goes out to my mother for deciding I needed a sewing machine a few years ago. I honestly did not see the value since I did not sew or have much desire to at the time, but I am so thankful to have my own machine now.
So, back to the project at hand. I am in the process of decorating Nora's room. Right now her room consists of a hideous hodgepodge of decor and furniture that needs painting. Her curtains are basically an old twin sheet that we nailed up to block some of the sunlight. (yeah, it's bad)
I found this quilt kit at Wal-mart in the clearance section for $11. I was so excited, so I went ahead and bought it. Fast forward about 3 months later, and I finally got out the fabric and did something with it.... TA DA!
The quilt is not finished. I just cut out everything and pieced it together, but it still needs the backing and binding. I was so proud of myself the night I put this together I couldn't stop staring at it. I think it is going to be perfect for a little girl's room!
