Something else finished

I have wanted a red and white toile bedspread for years and years. I decided a couple of months ago that it was now or never. I couldn't find what I wanted in the stores or on line so I decided I would make it myself. I visited our local fabric store and they had Waverly red and white toile. Along with their help I figured out how much fabric I needed and purchased 9 plus yards of the toile along with the same amount of red and white ticking for the backing and binding of the bedspread.

I had a local long arm quilter do the quilting. I decided to use Warm and Natural batting as that is what I used in my quilts. I now have a bedspread that will keep us warm in the coldest weather. The shams are made with the toile in the center and the ticking around the edging.

I moved an oriental rug from my great room into the bedroom and placed it under the bed and that adds to the warmth of the room.

I love it!

I have a special post tomorrow. Tune in.


  1. I have been wanting to make a bedspread for my bed too. I even have a longarm and I still haven't done it! Yours is beautiful!
