a while ago i came across this pretty bedspread diy from talia, and i knew that i really wanted to make a similiar one. i bought two pretty vintage sheets and hand-dyed embroidery thread on etsy, and got to work... about five months ago. yes, this bedspread took me forever, but it is just about done. just the binding is left. thus, the basket of scraps that i am going to spend the afternoon cutting into strips. i kept it simple and didn't use any batting - i wanted it to be heavier than a sheet, but lighter than a blanket. perfect for summer sleeping, as well as picnics. 

i am thinking of doing more quilting in the future... and possibly even making some quilted goods for my shop. i never thought i would enjoy it so much, but it's relaxing and quite rewarding when you have the finished project... plus, i love the look and feel of it: so soft, colorful, and better with wear.

have you ever made a quilt? have a favorite one?
