only 3 years later!

So I finally finished this quilt. I think I started it 3 years ago;) I bought a jelly roll of this material not knowing what I was going to do with it I just loved the colors. Then I decided I was going to make a quilt for my bed then I ran out of material and had to find more then it sat in my closet for a year or so. I pulled it out and decided my daughter needed a quilt for her bed first so I finally finished it this weekend! It is going to be a long time before I do another queen or king size quilt! Pushing all that material thru the machine to hand stipple is quite the workout. My shoulders get so tight and sore I can only work on it in small sections so it felt like it took for ever to get done. I love piecing and I love hand binding I find that so relaxing it is the stipple part that I could live without. If I had a longarm machine that would be so much easier but I don't see myself getting one of those in the near future. I will just stick with lap size or smaller quilts and my shoulders will thanks me.

Now I need to make some pillows and curtains to go with the quilt. I'm not sure what color....I painted her walls this weekend and boy did they turn out PINK!!!! It is kind of a pink purple and I'm not loving it but I think once I get art on the walls and curtains and accessories up the pink will not be the main focus. The shades she has have to go and maybe I might have to paint the woodwork white......uggg always lots of work! First thing first I finding a material for the curtains.
