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.
