I made two lap quilts using these fabrics. I was so happy with the first, I did it all again–differently.
Florals large and small. Romantic colors in warm, muted shades. A touch of blue and gray–but not too much.
I went to my stash of vintage embroidered linens, and pulled out a few to cut up and use as embellishment. You can see a sweep of linen doily there below.
(Don’t tell the other fabrics, but that bright red rose is one of my favorites–from the Lecien Flower/Sugar line. I’ve never been able to find that pattern again, either.
In the low light, it still looks so prettily shabby chic.
More doily edging below. I matched it with solid squares to add interest and texture.
The reverse side is made from four different fabrics. I didn’t have enough of the blue, so added neutrals which would not compete visually.
Here it is in bright sunlight. Lighting for these things is always a challenge–getting the colors to reproduce right, and not have too much shadow going on.
The size is 56-inches by 48-inches. It is all cotton, and a summer-weight throw. Pretty over the back of your couch, or a chair. It’s in my etsy shop now. 🙂
