I’ve made another quilt and this one is for me! I was at the Quilter’s Cocoon recently and found 12 fat quarters of fabric I never thought I’d be able to use in a project.
If you’ve ever heard of Alexander Henry, he designs gorgeous fabrics. He mainly does Hawaiian prints and pin-up prints.
I found twelve fat quarters of Alexander Henry fabric and each fat quarter was one dollar!
Here are the names of the fabric I used and the number of fat quarters I had for that specific fabric:
Heavy Equipment – 1
Look of Love – 1 yard, only used for the pillowcase
Wranglers – 3
Ready for Action – 4 (I used one fat quarter for a separate pillow!)
All I Want for Christmas -3
Halloween Hunks – 1
Can you tell that I wasn’t going with the Hawaiian theme?
This was all about a week and a half ago. I leave California on the 17th, so I knew I was a little (okay, majorly!) pressed for time. So I set to work on sewing my project, and I’ll have you know I am ridiculously pleased with the results.
Here are some pictures of the college dorm bedspread I’ve made! (Along with a pillow and pillowcase!) It’s around the size of a twin XL.
This is the pillow I made (the Ready for Action firefighters, yum!) and the pillowcase is made from a yard of the also scrumptious Look of Love fabric!
Here are some pictures of the fun doodle-stitching I did!
This was a really, really fun project and I’m glad I was able to finish it before heading back to Evansville. I’m definitely going to have the sexiest bed on campus!
I hope you enjoyed it (I know I sure did!)
Have a good day!
P.S. When I move into my dorm (in less than two weeks!) I’ll be sure to take photos of how the quilt and pillows look on my bed!
