24 Sep Dorms and quilts
Sorry to have neglected you my bloggy friends! It has been a whole week since I posted anything.
We left Saturday to move my daughter into her dorm. It rained the whole day! Luckily, the times we were doing the most running in and out it was only raining lightly. Michelle and her longtime best friend are rooming together. They have a double that has two small rooms. One has a fireplace in it! I’m pretty sure they aren’t allowed to actually use it, but I promised to give her some of my pillar candles to put in for a fireplace effect.
The beds and dressers fit in one room and the desks fit in the fireplace room. They also have a large closet with some great storage space above it. I didn’t get a picture of it, but the beds are quite high so there is also storage underneath them too. If she fills up all that space during the year, we’ll never be able to fit it all in to bring it home next spring!
Of course, I can’t go anywhere without seeing quilt possibilities! This picture is the outside of her dorm building. I love the arrangement of the blocks. There are so many windows that this was the biggest chunk of wall I could take a picture of. Now that I can look at the blocks a little closer, the arrangement may be random, but it still has a few wheels turning 🙂 If I make a quilt inspired by her dorm that would be a different kind of “dorm quilt” wouldn’t it!
I’m stitching away on my Project Modern entry – not sure if I’m going to make the deadline!
