Sewing Room Sneak Peak & Doll Quilt Swap

I'm sorry for the blurry picture here,
but remember this room?
At one time 
it belonged to 
my youngest son, Justin.
But he left for college.
It's now being transformed
into my new sewing room. 
Here's a sneak peak of the same area:
What do you think?
I am SO loving it!
Tonight I finished all the painting.
My husband and son did the electrical work
(put additional outlets in and
a new ceiling fan).
Now we just have to
take care of the floor
then I can start to move in!

Below is the fabric I
purchased for my curtains.
Oh yeah....
Total chic room!
No boys allowed!

I also participated in a doll quilt swap
at Once Upon a Quilt.  Here's the quilt I made

my swap partner, Kris:

I was very happy with how this came out.
But when I got mine,
I just didn't have words
for how much I love it.
All hand stitched.
Absolutely beautiful!!
This will definitely have
a special place in my new
sewing room.
I know I said I would be posting 
a recipe, and one is coming.
I have just been driving 
myself crazy working on my new room.
But I have a good one for you
in the next couple days.
I hope this finds you well
and happy!

Your quilts are beautiful, both the one you made, and the one you received. I really like the shade of paint you chose for your room too.

Your paint color is beautiful! I've noticed that turquoise colors are just great with nearly all quilts... ;)
