Phase III.......Dropcloth bedspread is finished!

You know that feeling of finally getting something that you have been dreaming and contemplating for such a long, long time and then finally you just have it?!? That's how I feel about this bedspread! I have been pining over this picture for a very long time, knowing I could probably make it myself but dragging my feet cuz I knew it would be kind of a pain. But, it wasn't all that bad, lol! Everything went so smoothly until today, I swear I can't have a sewing project that doesn't give me some sort of a fit. But, I worked through it and finally got it done. 

And I made it myself. And it cost me $60.00!!! Well under the $625.00 price tag my dream spread had:)

Today I just had do a few adjustments and finish the two corners of the spread, but because of my glitch, it took me a little longer



This was another reason why it was a bit of a pain......all this fabric to work around....


it was a beast!

I also made covers for the two Euro shams that I got to go on the bed. 

So, here is my inspiration:



And here is mine......






















I took the curtains down that I had hanging from the rods at the head of the bed. I just the bedspread to be the feature on this bed. 

My room looks a little bare right now because I'm changing a few things. 

Well? What do you think, does it look like my inspiration bedspread?
