After my embarrassment at picking the same blocks as one of my fellow bee members, I decided I wanted to try out Jaybird Quilts Carnival Pattern for my blocks. I posted the other day that I wasn't sure about the border I had done. Julie (the Jaybird herself) suggested a small white border and then the colored border. Of course - she was right! I had done some with a solid white border before that. Here are my results:
What do you think!? I think I'm ready to make the full quilt now!
I also realized that during yesterdays WIP post, I forgot to give an update on my big bathroom project! I had taken pictures and everything. So for those interested here's where it's at:
Cindy suggested to me. Then I have two lighter shades of grey (one not photographed). Let me stress, this powder room is tiny. I think it's about 3' by 5'? So it's hard to get a good photo! Anyone have experience with a dark color in a small room? Love it/hate it?
The paint samples are carefully spaced around holes that are being spackled. Somehow the plaster just seems to be eating up the spackle. I fill it and it only plugs part of it! Plaster is different than drywall, I've never had this issue before. And hubby needs to get some of the wallpaper that's in a position I can't reach. So we've got a bit of time to decide on the paint. In the meantime, all guests using the powder room will need to pick their favorite color!
