Custom Bedspreads and Shams in Arts & Crafts Styles


We make custom bedding in a variety of styles including throw and fitted bedspreads as well as duvet covers. We also make pillow shams. We suggest using one of our heavier linens or cotton velvet (see fabrics). Please see Talking Bedding and Labor Prices to help you make design decisions & then contact us for an estimate.
The bedroom on the left shows a throw bedspread in natural linen with the Water lily stencil border in dark red & forest along the seams. The bed at right shows a duvet cover in "linen" velvet with the Ginkgo Medallion applique. The pillow sham is embellished with the Dragonfly applique.

Traditional (unquilted) Throw Bedspreads & Coverlets

The classic & simple bedspread style for an Arts & Crafts bedroom . Our throw bedspread is lined & has rounded corners
at the bottom & square corners at the top. Craftsmen style applique or vintage stencils along the seams can add a subtle accent. Please look at the Stencil Thumbnails or the Applique Thumbnails for some ideas.
A throw bedspread will have a 21" drop. A coverlet will have a 14" drop. A 20" pillow tuck is available on request.
The hem is blind stitched & the spread will have two seams several inches from the side edges.
The placement of these seams will depend on the size of the bed & the width of the fabric. The inside or outside edge of the seams
is an excellent location for an Arts & Crafts stencil or applique border.

Fitted Bedspreads

Fitted bedspreads are suitable for daybeds in Craftsmen libraries and for more tailored Arts & Crafts bed make-ups. They work best with beds that do not have a foot board. The bedspread will have a 21" drop. A 20" pillow tuck is available on request.
The fitted bedspread will have a seam around the mattress edge (as well as a seam several inches from the mattress edge)
& an inverted box pleat at the bottom corners. The mattress edge seam may be corded for an additional charge.
The illustration above (and on the duvet cover shown below) applique as a center medallion adds interest.

Duvet Covers

A zippered cover for a comforter. Duvet covers would be used with a bedspread on an old fashioned Stickley bed.
These may be made with a designer fabric top & natural muslin back or with designer fabric on both sides. The edge may corded
or with a simple seam. The inside corners have ties to secure your comforter (most comforters are made with loops at the corners).

Pillow Shams

Pillow shams are a good idea if your bedspread has no pillow tuck or for a bed in a Craftsmen study. They can be made to match your spread or in a contrasting fabric & are an excellent place for embroidery or stencilling. They are available in three styles: plain (at left), corded edge & flanged (at right) for a day bed, with a custom adaptation of the Prairie Grass applique.

Talking bedding:

Pillow Tuck: extra length added to the bedspread so that you can fold the spread around your pillows.

Drop: the length of overhang of your bedding. A typical bedspread has a drop to the floor. A coverlet drops to just below the mattress & usually is used with a decorative side board or a dust ruffle. Some beds may need an unusually long drop either because they are an extra high vintage style or because they have an extra thick mattress. Check your bed measurements.
