do you remember that i said i was trying to do this master redo for free?
well here’s my strategy:
so far my mom has said she’d buy our bedding for christmas.
so, bedding – check!
next up is my search for lamps.
i asked my friend joy to keep an eye out for me.
i’m looking for those lamps that have a sort of art deco feel, where they look like 5 or 6 clear balls stacked on top of each other. i’ve seen them all over, but at too high of a price.
but just days after asking joy, she found them! (pics coming soon)
so now i need to pay for them (darn! why can’t they be free?).
fabrics that you can’t even find a smidge of anywhere.
mixed in with those fabulous prints are fun textures like chenille and terry cloth.
the whole thing it bordered and backed with fabric from rachel ashwell’s shabby chic line for target.
its in really good shape, with one tiny little stain.
it closes with a great button closure.
one of the things i love about this quilt is that it is soft and muted, but still really colorful.
and it’s girly and masculine at the same time.
most of the fabrics are actually reversed, i used the backside instead of the front, to keep it muted and vintage-looking.
so how much am i selling it for?
ummmm, not sure?
how do you price something like this?
it took me hours and hours to make (it was only my second time piecing squares like this),
and it cost me waaaay more in fabric to make than if i bought something ready made.
but it is exactly what i wanted.
so i’m leaving it up to you.
if you are really interested (a few of you have already contacted me), leave me a comment or send me an email and make an offer.
let’s have the bidding start at, say, one meeeellion dollars (any austen powers fans out there?).
also, feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
