Guest Room Facelift

I've been pondering doing something a little different in the guest room for a while, so when my friend Krista asked if she could stay with us at the end of October, that was the motivation I needed to get going.
 Here are a couple of pictures of the room as it is now.  I love this quilt.  I got it about 16 years ago, and will get it back out in the spring and summer for this room, but I wanted something with darker colors for fall and winter.
 The picture below is blurry, but I included it because it shows the little white dresser, which will soon be a new color.
 Here's a small sneak peak at the new quilt.  The piece below Raggedy Ann's arm looks very similar to her dress fabric, but in a larger print.  My Grandmother made that Raggedy Ann for me when I was about 2, so I think it's neat that the quilt has a similar fabric even though it's...ahem...a few years since Raggedy's dress was made.
