Make a patchwork bedcover with vintage scarves.

We love the abstract geometric shapes found on
women’s scarves from the 1960s and 70s. With
their bright colors and bold motifs, each scarf is
like a modern abstract painting.
As vintage fabric collectors, we’ve amassed a large collection
of scarves that we were unable to use in the making of our other
home decor products. Since the bold graphic effect of these
scarves is mostly lost when wrapped around the body, we
decided to find a way to put them on display. A bedspread
seemed the ideal way to exhibit their full potential.
