Quilt Wall

Today I hung up most of my small quilts for my "someday" quilt wall. I have mentioned this quilt wall a few times before. I originally saw it here. I was going to wait until we painted our bedroom but that is just not going to happen before the baby is born. I had to do something though. I am not fond of the wallpaper/border or the color of the room. The wallpaper is bubbling and peeling in spots and it drives me nuts some days. This is my temporary solution to that problem. I can ignore the wallpaper and just look at the quilts. I like it!

If you're wondering why there are 2 quilts on my bed, it's because I'm pregnant. And hot. All the time. So I use our summer quilt while my husband uses the winter quilt. This is about as made as my gets :) 

Thanks for all of the advice on baby quilt sizes. I hope to be putting a top together tonight that I can show you this week. I'm still working on responding to comments. Yahoo does not like my dial-up internet. So I'll be working on that too!

 Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Your quilt wall is so awesome! It makes me want to hang all my quilts together and see how they look!
I don't think it's weird that you have two quilts on your bed, my husband and I each have our own. I don't like to share and he likes to roll up like a burrito!

What an awesome idea! I bought stuff to hang mine about 3 months ago, but still haven't actually hung them... You've motivated me to pull my finger out and do it :o)

I love it! I have several little quilts that don't have a special place yet, and this would be perfect for displaying them. Thanks so much for sharing!

I adore your quilt wall and have a space above my sitting chair in my sewing room for mini quilts. I just saw the Baby's first Christmas birdy mini you made last year. You are always an inspiration to me and I hope to create my own little birdy quilts as sweetly as you have. Thanks Erin!

I'm not sure I would get much done around the house if I had a pretty wall like that! I would plant a comfy chair right where I could see it and enjoy it for much of the day! Such a pretty way to showcase your lovely pieces!You've got me thinking I need to start making mini quilts to cover up this awful 70's paneling!
