Cath Kidston quilt lampshade...made by me

I have always loved Cath Kidston materials, well anything by her really. She has such a gift for that old fashioned look in the home. I made this lampshade actually a few years ago. I would send for swatches so I could get ideas on the material for other projects and then I ended up having the left over swatches. Well..ta-da! ..I cut them up and just covered the shade. SOOO easy. The biggest problem was deciding where to put each also used pinking shears to make the edges cute too. It has traveled from my room to Annabelles ,and once to the living room. Its a nice thing to do when you cant find that "perfect" shade in the store and a great way to recycle leftovers. Hope you like it....

Also... Join me at a BLOG PARTY! Once a week on ......they will be hosting the I MADE IT - BLOG PARTY ...... Yeah ! This is such a wonderful website and blog!
