new quilting studio

November 21, 2014

In the early fall, my husband and I embarked on our first major home improvement project: my quilting studio.  We painted, rearranged, and installed 400 square feet of ceramic tile in our basement.  It took the better part of 6 weeks for us to finish, and in the beginning of October I was finally able to move back in.  Before, the entire room was painted a weird cream color – including the fireplace, which I must say looks WAY better when it’s contrasted with the walls.  The yellow is called “Sheer Apricot” and it turned out just like I wanted.  “Studio Taupe” is the color on the fireplace.

Somewhere during all of this madness, I submitted an entry to Quilt National, which was rejected.  At first I was really bummed, but I never figured I’d actually get in on my first try.  It was a warmup for other things.
