Do you know when you make something and there is that awkward moment when you upload the photo and you wait to see if everyone likes it? I mean, you really like it yourself but that just makes you want everyone else to like it all the more. Well, this is one of those moments. This is the Mama and Papa Urchin contribution to Eireann‘s One in Ten auction.
Papa made the bed and I made the quilt — and a mattress you can’t see. Did you guys know Papa was a woodworker? I forget if I told you that before. He made our kitchen table. What he really likes to do is woodturning. The bed is made from mahogany and fiddle-back maple. Here’s a detail shot:
The quilt was made using fabrics from moda’s tiddley winks line, quilting cottons, corduroy, and a few of my favorites — trees, but in cream, and houses — from superbuzzy. Amy‘s scrap x quilt inspired the quilt top. The back is a coordinating turquoise chenille.
A more detailed description and information about the auction can be found at the One in Ten site. The auctions begin on August 19.
EDITED TO ADD: I’ve posted a photo of the doll bed with two softies for scale.
