Can't wait to show y'all . . . .

. . . . the finished project!


It's done!  (Grin) You know that fabulous feeling, right? You planned and sewed and sandwiched and bound the edges, and, and . . . . well, now I get to show it off!!

Here ya go, the latest from the guest bedroom:

The vintage white chenille spread is a great backdrop for all those sweet prints and tone-on-tone fabrics.  It's one of those cherished treasures that has been in the family for millennia. Well, maybe not that long, but for a pretty good while. (Grin)

Once again, the fabrics are from the gorgeous (and out of print) Butterscotch and Rose collection from Fig Tree and Co. for Moda, combined with Kona white cotton.

Here's a pic of the shams in all their beauty (and I really think they are beautiful!):

Here is a photo showing the quilt folded on the foot of the bed, and all the pillows:

You can see that the white spread also helps to tone down that intense granny-apple-green on the walls, too. I like that it takes that green and almost makes it a neutral!

The valance picks up the colors by using the left over triangles from the quilt:

Now, this particular fabric collection may be out of print, but you could always adapt this to any layer cake of fabric that you prefer -- the blocks are simple and quick! The pattern name is called "Blossom." 

Be sure to stop in over at the Fat Quarter Shop for your Kona solids.... wow! Have they ever got the variety of colors there! (And if you do shop there, start with our linkie if you don't mind  -- it's an affiliate link. That means that we will get a small reward for your purchase, but it doesn't raise your price one penny! Just helps us to bring you more merriment and mayhem from the Lilypad!!)

And there is more of that merriment on the way! Stay tuned!
