Are you ready to see how I turned Firecracker’s twin sized quilt into a queen sized one? It was really, really easy.
I did this because the twin quilt already matched the nursery décor, and because I am a cheapskate.
This is what Monkey’s “guest bed” looked like before he moved into it.
Lovely, right?! I am kidding. Let’s flashback to what Firecracker’s quilt looked like:
See the blue edging on the queen sized quilt? I cut that off and serged the raw edges.
Then I lined the blue edges up with the twin quilt and pinned them into place.
When everything was pinned, I sewed the ‘new’ edges onto the quilt.
That was it! Easy Peasy!
You know that old saying, “Use it up, Wear it out. Make it do, or do without”? I live by that. I serged the raw edges of the queen quilt and now it’s in with our camping gear. Waste not, want not, right?!
Back to Monkey’s new bed…
He loves it!
Check back on Thursday to see the conclusion of the nursery redo! I’ll show you how I refashioned Monkey’s curtains!
