Embroidered linen bedspreads first and last....


I was commissioned to make 3 quilts for a customer this summer. Two of them were of embroidered linen. Beautiful fabric.These 2 quilts are queen size.

I used Isacord and glide cream colored threads and quilted around the motifs, about 1/4" out.
The fabric was chosen to coordinate with the Tiffany lamps in each of the guest rooms. They were not traditionally bound but have a french finish and then hemmed.
If you are considering doing this consider that when fabric is embroidered it may be pulled off grain, this was, and not always centered, this wasn't. To match the motifs some areas had to be eased in to fit. Basting the seam over the flowers worked better than sewing and ripping and sewing and ripping..... Challenging but successfully completed!

king size bedspreads have so much influence in a room. Comforters, quilts, or whatever the blanket may be, it has power to make or break a room.
