Since I wrote the last post, I have been steadily working on a queen-size bed spread for my daughter. It has been a larger scale project than I usually undertake, but I am happy with the results. It is pictured here in my bedroom with the purplish colored walls…. her soft cocoa walls will set it off much better. In the pictures below, more or less for my own journal, a step by step process is detailed. Feel free to click away to more interesting content online if this does not interest you. 😮
As I stated in my previous blog, I am busy making art quilts to enhance our master bedroom, which has a new coat of paint. The “sensuous gray” color on the wall was chosen to blend with a batik fabric. Once the walls were finished, I began work on pillow cases and shams, along with a bed scarf. The bed spread is not my creation, but had been purchased prior to selection of the paint and fabric. I was able to add some history with the addition of the antique doilies made by my husband’s grandmother and aunt.
If you can read my mind, then you’ll be able to figure out what this “work in progress” will be! It will be picture ready in a few days. Check back for it!
