    Hi!
    I have decided that my days of making monstrous Queen sized quilts is done. I just can't wrangle them any more! So I purchased from Winner's a lovely ivory quilted bed cover with pillow shams and I am going to make a variety of bed toppers to go over it. I am thinking spring( hence the tulip one), summer, fall, Christmas and maybe winter.

    Here's the tulip one. I am going to clean the kitchen floor tomorrow and get the spray basting done and quilt and bind it on the weekend.

    My husband is in Alberta for two weeks attending his son's graduation from university and he gets home on Wednesday so I want to get it finished before then!

    Very pretty, and very suggestive of spring, without being all frilly.
    Good job!
    Thank you for sharing!

    Oh and I should have given credit to the designer of this quilt... Joen Wolfrom from her book, "A Garden party of Quilts."

    What a great idea!! Is it quilted, or just the top?

    what a great idea, mamagus! I have several I want to make, and hubby always pushes everything over to my side, and most of the time it falls on floor, becoming a hazard.
    I think I might borrow your idea. I'll have to either find a nice ivory one, like yours, or make a wholecloth. I'd rather buy one, and work on the toppers! I love this idea, and yours is so pretty. :D

    Very good idea and you are a smart lady! :thumbup: You will have so much more time to do seasonal ones now. This one is very pretty and am looking forward to more.

    I am guessing that the U.S. has "Winner's" or "Home Sense"? I bought the ensemble (King size so it would fall past the box spring) bed cover and two shams for 70.00 Canadian. I bought a beige one for the bed in my cottage and it is wonderful. Washes well and is good quality.

    I am looking through books and magazines for my next project! Over time as I want to update the other bedrooms I am thinking I will go this route.

    Thanks for all your compliments!

    fantastic idea - using toppers instead of whole quilts ... I just might give this a try. Thanks for the idea, Mamagus.

    I had a similar idea with 'seasons' quilts, but I have them as wall hangings. currently I haven't managed to make an Autumn quilt, but I have some fabrics on order, so I am just waiting for my squishy. I like the idea of a neutral shop bought bedspread, and adding toppers that will be quicker and easier to make. Well done.

    The tulips are beautiful, and so is the idea of a topper! I think I'll be another convert! LOL

    Really pretty! And what a good idea! I had to laugh when I read that you'll clean the kitchen floor before you baste - that's the ONLY time I clean my floor! LOL
