Trish, what a wonderful job! I shared a bedroom with two of my sisters growing up and how wonderful it would have been to have such a room ... the murals are great and I LOVE the quilts! I've always admired anyone with the patience to do quilting ... thought about trying it once but knew me, and knew that it would get started and never finished, LOL. You did a really nice job and I bet the girls really are pleased!

Happy Birthday to your daughters!


... what do you have in mind for decorating the boys room? I bet they're hoping mom will paint them some kind of neat mural, and make boy quilts for their beds. Big Grin

I'm still recovering from the blitz of this room! Blinking

I had offered the oldest boy to do their room first, but he declined my offer. Much to the #4's dismay once I got started on the girl's room.

BTW- I knew there was no way I'd ever finish a hand quilted quilt at this point in my life! I machine quilted Big Grin One has to be realistic, you know! Whistling

I'm pretty sure mine's in the garage housing more than a few families of mice *Blush*
