Lots of you have asked me to show the progress on the Quilting Cottage so I've been taking a few pictures as we go along. My inspiration for the colors I chose for the Quilting Cottage is this new fabric line by Henry Glass. I'm loving the colors together, blacks yellows and greys. I hope I love it for a long long time because now the walls match it and paint ain't cheap! I stole this collage of fabrics from Shabby Fabrics, I hope they don't mind. I love Shabby Fabrics and want you all to go there and buy something...am I out of trouble yet?
So here's the tour...
The quilting cottage started out as a barn of some sort. The window wells are at least 15 inches deep. We started out by removing a wall to the bedroom area and framing it in. This is the south side.
Lots of time has been spent painting and cleaning. I went with a grey paint by Behr called Dolphin and a yellow for accent by Behr called Straw, I think, I'll have to check that one out if anyone really wants to know leave me a message.
Before we moved we were able to pick up a few odds and ends from the JoAnn's store that was moving across town. We bought 2 pattern boxes, some counter tops and other things very cheap, I think the boxes were $25.00 each and I got the last 2.
This is my Grand daughter Fiona helping with the painting.
The Ice Cream shop chair you see in the left corner of the picture is one of the 6 that I've been hanging onto for years. They will get a nice new coat of paint and new seats that are covered in this Bee-u-t-ful fabric. Well that's it for today I'm off to paint or scrub or agitate my husband for the day and then tonight we are going to see Sawyer Brown and Due West in concert. Only 11 more days and we can move into our new house. Hopefully I'll have the sewing room all ready before that so I can escape and make that March Doll Quilt that is due by the end of the month. Have a great day! V.
