For a while now I have been trying to figure out a decor solution for the children’s bathroom. I really like black and white, so I chose that for the color scheme. I was feeling so uninspired until I ran across this number quilt.
I thought this would make a perfect wall hanging for the bathroom. It’s cute and can be used as a learning tool. As a matter of fact, I have already begun using it while baby boy sits on the potty. He goes right into counting before I can even think that it’s hanging on the wall behind me.
I went through my stash to find black and white fabric to make this project. I used fabric from yardage as well as…………curtain remnants of course!
I think it turned out great! I had a little more wall space I wanted to cover so I added a polka dot border around the quilt. I also made it to the end and decided not to actually quilt the project. It was a turn and top-stitch only type of situation. There is a layer of batting in the middle, and it helps to give it a little weight. It is backed with a simple gray cotton.
There is a wall adjacent to this one that is still empty. I am thinking about putting the alphabet on it in a fun and creative way. I just don’t know what that will look like yet. If you have any suggestions let me know.
I took a short break from sewing clothes to do this project, but it was still made from a free downloadable pattern and instructions. I think this would be really neat as an even bigger wall hanging in a children’s space or an actual quilt you can use. I also like the original version in color.
And the sewing fun continues……
And who is that off in the distance?
None other than baby boy with toothbrush in one hand and car in the other. Gotta love it!
