Painting The New Quilt Room

Day 2 in The New Quilt Room – The First Coat of Paint With Soma Doing the Inspection!

I am working on the first coat with white oil base paint.  The walls are really absorbing the paint. So, I think this little space is going to take at least a second coat to cover the walls!

While painting this wall, I managed to splatter paint on Kaya, who if you didn’t know is all black!  I had to cut the dried paint spots out of her hair!  Which prompted me to remind myself next time:  Not To Let Any Dogs In The Quilt Room When I’m Painting!  With all of the windows in this room and the sliding glass door, I am staying cool while I’m working!  I think this room is going to be a really nice space to quilt and to take pictures of the quilts in progress!

Sunny Days To You!

A New Place to Quilt

We’re Turning A Greenhouse Space Into A Room To Quilt – Kaya at the Entrance of the Greenhouse

My husband, Tim, offered up his greenhouse in the backyard near our garden to convert into a place to set up large quilts.  The goal is to have a tranquil place to quilt and to not take over anymore of the house with quilt projects!  This greenhouse was built by Tim two or three summers ago with all of the windows we had replaced on the back of our home.

The room is 10.5 feet by 9.5 feet.  There will be no problem setting up a large queen size quilt in this space.  I’m very excited to have a place to have my quilt sticks, quilt bucks (stands), and quilting thread all in one place!

When the space is ready, I have the first large quilt picked out to set up in this space.  I’ll show you that quilt soon!

Have a Great Day!
