Finally! I finished the coverlet for my bed.
Here's a quick progression.
I sewed 3" strips together, then cut them into 3" strips.
These strips were joined to make squares.
And the squares were joined to squares of muslin to form strips.
And the strips were joined to make the top middle of the bedspread. Then more strips were added to expand it to fit the full size bed. Then, the thrifty really kicked in. I had some old window valances in the closet that I split to form the border. The fun part was - they were already hemmed.
Now I have my lightweight coverlet for the summer. (Big Smile!)
And you ask why it stays in the closet? Because Miss Honey loves to roll in anything smelly, then roll on the bed. So, now you know why I don't put anything expensive on my bed. And I'm too cheap to pay dry cleaning bills. Told you I sacrifice for that doggie!
Oh, and the dust ruffle - it is two brocade tablecloths and an old sheet from a garage sale.
Now, try to be thrifty today,
