Bedroom Makeover Revisited

A couple months ago I wrote about helping my mom choose fabric to sew a new quilt for my childhood bedroom. (You can read that post here.) Since I like closure and love seeing finished quilts in their intended environment, I thought you’d enjoy seeing the finished results from that shopping trip.

Here’s a photo of the finished bed quilt, complete with new wall art. It creates a very sophisticated room! I think this is an interesting example of how to decorate with a contemporary pattern, creating a look that isn’t what most people would consider when they think about using a traditional bed quilt.

Here’s a photo of the coordinating pillow shams, a simple design featuring the same quilting pattern.

And finally, a close-up of one of the blocks, as well as the very cool waterfall machine quilting pattern.
