I’ve not published a post that included pictures of a reader’s sewing project before today. But why not, right?
Thanks, Christene, for sharing your success with us!
Christene found this great fabric on clearance at Boca Bargoons, a decorator fabric shop in Orlando. Don’t you love that texture?
This was Christene’s first time to make a bed spread and shams. The spread was so large, she needed help holding it while sewing. Here’s another reason it’s called a spread: Christene had to spread hers across two tables to assemble.
Her daughter (who loves to sew) helped. I can’t think of a better way to spend time together as mother and daughter (except shopping, of course – ha!).
Christene couldn’t remember which weight of batting I used for my Shams With a “No-Flop” Flange, so she bought 1/4″ quilt batting for her inner liner. She says it worked just fine.
After the sewing was complete, Christene painted the walls to match the fabric. You can just barely see it below to the left and right of the bed.
It all looks beautiful, Christene!
The color-pop of orange on the bed is wonderful, too.
I know you are so proud!
Isn’t this fun – seeing a project that another reader has been doing? Don’t you think Christene did a very nice job on her first spread and shams? (Me, too!)
