my patchwork. Posted by Hello

I started a patchwork bedspread this weekend. I wouldn't call it a quilt because it has no wadding and I have backed it with an old duvet cover, so it is three thin layers of fabric. Its a simple strip pieced design done on the sewing machine. I 'sashed' it with bias binding to cover my uneven seams.

I wanted to make a bedspread for the summer, because even a 'summer weight' duvet is too much on hot nights, but very early mornings can be quite chilly.
