Bedroom Ensemble For My Daughter

I have been sewing over the Christmas holiday for my daughter and her hubby. This ensemble is for the master suite in their new home. They are getting a king size bed so this was made for it.... we have it showing on their queen for the photos.

I quilted the Kona Coal Gray bedspread with a chevron design on my Gammill longarm and added a gray corduroy backing.  The throw at the foot of the bed is made of lightweight custom fabric for drapes and/or upholstery.  I quilted straight lines across it on the longarm. It is backed with a solid color of the same type fabric to pull out the gold-like color.

We decided to make 3 queen size pillow shams instead of 2  king size shams.  It really does look much better this way.  We wanted to pull the fabrics in the curtains down to the bed so we opted to make the 2 larger throw pillows from those Kona fabrics.... Kona Bone and Kona Curry.  The drapes are fully lined using the Kona Bone fabric.
