It’s Raining Men!

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!
