That begs to be tied and used on the grass with a good book and a glass of lemonade.

Stefanie said...

Do you have a rough estimate of how long this took you to do the top? It's beautiful. I have a vintage lavendar roses sheet I want to do something like that with.

stefanie,

I think it took me a couple of hours to cut and piece the entire thing. the hardest part is folding the sheets in order to cut them straight. you definitely should try it!
