Tea Towels to Bedspread

I was recently given a job to make a bedspread out of beautiful embroidered tea towels. All I knew was that the bedroom was green and the bed was queen size.

I was given a project to combine some beautiful tea towels that were given as a present but the receipient lives on a ranch and tea towel were not really useful, but she did need a new bedspread. So it was passed on to me to come up with a design and find some fabric that would bring out the beautiful French hand loomed cotton and embroidery on the towels. I found a heavy woven cotton with a design that complimented the towel’s design.  I used a sage colored ribbon to separate and deliniate the towels and the new fabric. Once I had the towels and heavy cotton togeter, I used a heavy muslin on the back and attached the ribbon through all thicknesses to hold everything together.  I had enough left over for pillow shams and three other pillows. I really turned out beautifully.
