Vintage Sewing

Made my bed, now I’ll lie in it

January 12, 2010

You might understand my predicament. A pathological drive to hoard scraps left after sewing projects. A compulsive attraction to old fabric and loud prints. A sewing room of finite dimensions.

I proffer a solution. Make a bedspread by sewing ’em all together in a haphazard fashion that demands the very fewest number of cuts so you can use every last piece of what you’ve got. I post it here because many of the fabrics have featured in my Sew Retro projects. Check out the pic on flickr for full notes on all the fabrics!

  1. I just made a first quilt too… did you do quilting and binding or just sandwich the lot together?
    It looks beautiful!
