Bedspreads

Paint By Threads specializes in creating bedspreads that are simple; showcasing clean straight lines and seams which is essential to accentuating an Arts and Crafts bed. A central motif provides interest and color. Bedspreads are coverlet or throw style and include a 21-inch drop at the sides and end of bed, and have a traditional pillow tuck at the top. Duvet style bedspreads are also available and include a cotton or linen backing with a button closure at the top for insertion of your favorite down comforter for those cool winter nights. Custom bedspreads can be created to coordinate with a wall paper or wall stencil design.

The Craftsman Bedspread

An excellcent option for showcasing embroidered pillows across the top of the bed or a scarf at the foot of the bed, a grouping of three satin stitched squares is worked at intervals of every 5 to 6 inches along the side seams of the bedspread. A stem stitch is worked on top of the sew seam to conceal it. Simple and elegant. Can be worked in any color and any background fabric.
