Finally Finished

Good morning!  I hope you are enjoying this beautiful day (even though it is snowing here again!)  I am excited to show you my grainsack bed coverlet.  It is entirely hand sewn and could fit a king size bed.  I started it last winter by hand sewing strips of red grainsack yardage together.  This winter I finished it by adding a border with a different red grainsack roll.  I am happy to have finally finished it a couple days ago.  It did take a while, but kept me busy during the long winter months!  I think it turned out, what do you think?
































I sent Loretta at Full Bloom Cottage some grainsacks and she made these bolsters from them for me.  I love their size, perfect for the end of the bed!  Thank-you very much, Loretta, they turned out wonderful!










Thank-you for taking time to come back once again.  And a huge thank-you to Kim at Savvy Southern Style for featuring me this week at Wow Us Wednesdays!





Have a lovely weekend!

  2. It is absolutely beautiful!!! It is the show stopper of the whole room, which is beyond gorgeous. You have such wonderful pieces! I can't believe you hand sewed it...I tried to sew the bedroom curtains I just made by hand but gave up and went to the machine!

    Great job...I'll take one too please! :)

  20. Very pretty. Just curious as to why you did it by hand and didn't use a sewing machine.
