Sunflower Bed Cover

In this tutorialwe are going to show you how to fashion this attractive bed cover.
The size of the finished cover is 114" by 78" (284 x 196 cm). You willneed fabric of two matching colors.
For this project we used the design set SunflowersCollection.

Layout for color A: You will need 2.7 yds x 2 yds of fabric.

Layout for color B: You will need 3.2 yds x 2 yds of fabric.
Step One: Cut out 14 square pieces of color A and 16 squarepieces of color B.
Each square measures 13" x 13" (33 x 33cm), after stitching it shouldbe 12" x 12" (31 x 31cm)
Having embroidered all pieces, assemble them as shown on the diagramand use a sewing machine to stitch them together.

Step Two: Cut out 2 more square pieces of color A; cut them diagonallyinto 4 triangles (c). Machine stitch triangles (c) to the bed cover accordingto the diagram.

Step Tree: Cut out 2 square pieces measuring 35" x 35" (89 x89 cm) each; cut them diagonally into 4 triangles (d). Machine stitch triangles(d) to the bed cover according to the diagram. The cover's top is ready.
