~Plaid & Floral a Cheery Duo~

All my favorite colors rolled into one!. With shades of Yellow, Cream, Red, Green and Blue. Yes in deed Gary and I purchased 7 yards in each roll. I think it's always better to buy a little more just in case, no fabric will go unused in our home.
Love this plaid, it's so happy and bright and you always need more fabric when matching plaids. And this floral just gave me that tropical "Aloha" feeling. Together I thought they made a lovely pair. I think this fabric duo will brighten up the guest room perfectly. The curtains I have in there now are more on the muted tones and this duo is so much brighter. I will be making curtains, pillows and pillowcases.
We are having a raining Sunday, so it's perfect to sit and sew. I better get busy so off I go!

Until we meet again may your heart be full of peace and joy.
Hugs and smiles for you,
Elizabeth

Hello Elizabeth & Gary, love that fabric! I would like some of that plaid if it only had a touch of blue! I think they will both look lovely in a guest room! Have a great week,

HI Elizabeth, thank you for visiting my blog. Very lovely bedroom, I like the little table in the middle of the beds, the color of the wall and the bedsheet. Can you tell me more about the bedsheet ?

Many thanks,
