Mr. Liam’s World
99% of the room is from Ikea. Did you know you can fit a bed, dresser, nightstand, bookcase, and mattress plus a Liam and stroller into a Honda Insight? Impressive, eh? ;) We did a second trip for the play table, frames, a million random finishing items and some stuff for the new playroom. Good thing it only takes 3 gallons (and 2 1/2 hours, ugh!) to get to Charlotte!
The orange chair used to be a pink chair in Maeve’s room. She had outgrown it so I got a new cover from PBK and gave it to Liam.
Curtains are Alexander Henry’s Ready, Set, Robot! Silver UFO is from PBK that we got ages ago.
Still loving the wall. When Liam saw the wall for the first time he said in a very quiet and amazed voice, “Wow. Wow. Wow.” It was awesone.
See the Lightening McQueen pillow? We were at JoAnn’s getting elastic for his sheets and Liam saw a bolt of Cars flannel. He walked around the entire store hugging the bolt. I didn’t have a choice in buying it. He made me.
Just the quilt (a similar pattern can be found here). I wanted a Modern Rose Garden-esque quilt but with smaller blocks to accommodate the smaller prints and Japanese fabrics but with a couple larger blocks for the robot prints. Sashed in Kona Coal and bound in a Riley Blake stripe. Fabrics in the blocks range from Amy Butler to Cotton Blossoms to various Japanese prints to all sorts of other random prints. It’s probably the least cohesive quilt I’ve ever made but I totally love it. There are 26 fabrics making up the squares and rectangles.
This is Michael Miller’s Blue Robots Flannel. I made sheets and pillowcases with it. Liam loves it. He has associated all of us with various robots in the scene. He, not suprisingly, got to be the little one in the airplane/spaceship.
Next house project? Some stuff for the walls in Maeve’s room and then painting our bedroom and bathroom. Thankfully both of those projects are much smaller than a whole room! Workwise, I’m working on some quilts plus 6 new patterns. Phew.
