Can’t you just imagine Betty Draper poised, forlorn, on the edge of this elegant bedspread. My hunt for authentic mid-century style bedspreads continues, and I love this design from Calico Corners. It is spot-on in its tailoring and the quilting of the fabric — this is classic, timeless. They make it for you: You go to the store…choose a fabric…decide whether you want quilting of the fabric (yes!)…choose welting (that fabric-covered piping that runs all along the edge) to match or contrast…they can even scallop the hem… give them your measurements and your credit card…and they make it for you. If you have this kind of dough re mi, get pinch pleat curtains in the same fabric, please.
Gulp. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be pricey. But I will say: A bedspread is the kind of thing you live with a long time. I’ve had mine for 7 years already, and I still love it.
