I was doing some house-cleaning today, stripped the bed and put on clean sheets, and decided it was time to pack up my winter comforter and bring out my summer bedspread. I made this 3 years ago, I think, because I wanted something for myself. Everything I made I either gave away as presents, or sold. At the time I was making a lot of gorgeous bedspreads, like this one:
So my mind was on bedspreads. I had this beautiful Lee Jofa print with exotic birds and foliage in really pretty colors:
I tried lots of fabric combinations until finally I took the plunge and used a soft narrow wale corduroy which is so soft it hardly is cordury at all, more like brushed cotton. The weights were totally different. The Lee Jofa is a light-weight linen weave cotton, and the other piece is almost too heavy, but it turned out very well. This was the only fabric I had that matched the jungle theme and the colors, and the heavier weight works well for the border. Here are shots of my bedroom with my summer bedspread. I hope you enjoy.
