WIP Wednesday - Bunk Bed Quilts

The "new" house has a family bedroom with a queen bed and a bunk bed, perfect for visiting families.  One of my favorite quilts is on the queen bed and its time to make quilts for the bunks.  As the inspiration quilt is a couple of years old, I have very little of the original fabric still in my stash (much to my surprise!) so I have started to pull fabric from my stash that at least coordinates.

Is it me, or is making up bunk beds an athletic event?  My idea is to size the bunk quilts to hang over the sides and hopefully hide any imperfections in the making of the bed.

Another little upgrade to the sewing room to share with you.

I had a wonderful weekend celebrating my 60th (the new 40??) birthday with my family.   Great food, visit to a farm, visit to a fabric store (I love my family), new games, pumpkin carving and more!  Look at those spoiled puppies!

 So much fun!

Hope you are having a great week!


  1. Love the colors in your fabric pull!

  2. Oh this is going to be good! Double good! Happy new 40th my friend!

  3. HAPPPPYYYYY BIRTHDAY!!!!! We are ten years apart....I just celebrated the BIG 50 in May...the new 30??? LOL!!! Love that we are young at heart!! LOVE THIS AGE!!!! BTW I have one of those little ironing tables.....LOVE IT!!!!

  4. Happy birthday from your age co-hort. I turned 60 on Oct. 16, so recently celebrated myself. I don't know about you, but I don't feel any different than I did at 40 or 50. Your bunk bed quilts should be fun and quick (at least quicker than queen size) so enjoy the process.

  5. Happy, happy day! I was in Nashua this morning, even in the rain the trees were still glorious.

  6. First and foremost, "Happy Birthday"!
    That fabric is wonderful and I like the idea of a family bedroom for guests.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Connie :)
