Eire Quilt

Hi there,

a good friend of mine was at Ireland at the beginning of July. To make him a surprise for his birthday and a nice memory of this vacation, I decided to make him a personalized quilt.
I bought different fabrics in irish national colors.
The skull-fabric is artistic freedom
The back of the quilt is again Dvala from Ikea. This time I bought 2 different colours and 2 different types. One Duvet Cover in black and one fitted sheets in green.
The pattern was created with the free software of Pattern Jam.
Last I let some nice pictures of his vacation print on fabric to sew them on top of the quilt.
So I think this will make a nice, comfy, usable and washable present AND a memory of a wonderful vacation.

Details from remodeling the living/dining room


Maybe you've spied this little lamp in my last post. This is one of the creations I did while my time-out.
I bought a simple white lamp for small money and painted the lamp stand in colors that matches the new look of my living/dining room.

Another little change in my last post were the chairs. They've got a new dress, too.
Before I went to work they were covered with brown velorisch fabric and that didn't match the new room. Over at Dawanda I found a fabric that matches better. It's printed allover with sand dollars.
Because the upholstery was still ok, I simply pulled the fabric over it. So I can turn back if I like.
