We have been working on adding some decorating to our guest room lately.
We hung a few pictures of various urban scenes, from Paris to Vegas to Madison to Hong Kong.
I made a few mini quilts for the nightstands, beginning with this fabric of vintage New York City postcards.
I used this fabric of vintage NYC street scenes for the backing because it was so adorable, I didn’t want to cut it up into smaller pieces.
These mini quilts were especially easy projects because I used one fabric for the top and one for the backing, so there wasn’t much cutting, no piecing and easy quilting.
I bought these city collection fabrics on our last trip to New York City that I want to staple to art canvases for another large blank wall in that room.
It’s been fun to liven up our guest room, which always seems to be a work in progress.

Yes it is fun to do up a guest room I agree;) Such great elements you are adding to yours.
wtg Terri – your mini quilts are adorable and go perfectly with your urban themed guest room. You are putting me to shame on the sewing front – my machine hasn’t seen any action at all this year – zilch – but I do so enjoy seeing what you’ve been busy with 🙂
So cute. The mini quilts are wonderful. I would love to spend time in your guest room!
Reversible mini quilts, what a great idea!
Oh I want to come and stay in your guest room. The mini quilts and artwork are adorable. Love homes with plenty to look at.
Love your guest room travel theme – your guests will never want to leave:)
That’s fun. I need to personalize our guest room. I need to begin with making curtains. LOL.
