Patchwork Bedspread…

As I’ve said/confessed I’m not the neatest of seamstresses but I really enjoy it. When renovating our bedroom I was given carte blanche and decided on these amazing curtains from Sanderson.

It is a little mad but I love it, I managed to buy a short piece of the fabric from Ebay and the idea of a bedspread to compliment the curtains came to mind.

I had a lot of old duvet covers from when my daughter was young and these were luckily in colours which I felt toned in well. I kept to a big rectangle and just sewed them all together in a random colour pattern.

The length of curtain fabric was stitched across near the base of the cover.

I also had a favourite old duvet cover with embroidered birds so this was used too.

I picked up the humming-bird theme and got the lovely mirror from Laura Ashley.

The designs from the curtain fabric were copied for the bedside table, previously blogged about.

A lace topped sheet in pale pink for the backing  and some fun bobble braid for around the edge.

I’m really pleased with how it turned out and it’s pretty warm too!

The headboard was made with a wooden frame constructed by my husband and covered with wadding and topped with fabric from Laura Ashley.

Thanks for reading,

Back soon, love Rosie
