The Last Bedspread I Crocheted

Back in 2013 (which I can't believe is almost 3 years ago), I blogged about starting another bedspread. Well, I actually finished it after a year but I only found time to share it now!

I posted this "teaser" before, but I never showed the entire spread :) I used Red Heart Baby Sheen. Forgive me for saying this but I already forgot what hook size I used. Of all pieces of information, I forgot to list this one down. I think I used between 3mm-4mm. I wasn't also able to take note how many skeins of Red Heart Baby Sheen I used. This yarn, by the way, had already been discontinued by Red Heart so this makes this bedspread really special (and unique, I guess).
It's made up of 266 motifs sewn together through the back loops of the last round of each motif. It is enough to cover a queen-sized bed. 
I got the motif pattern from the "300 Classic Blocks for Crochet Projects" book by Linda P. Schapper. The spread is made of just one motif design but I played with various combinations for different rounds of the same color palette.
I love the layers (and textures) created by the front and back post double crochets as well as the popcorn stitches. They made the different colors in each round pop. 
I'm not really sure if I'll be able to make another bedspread soon. It depends, if that "itch" comes back for such a huge project :)

If you want to get the last (and rare) remaining skeins of Red Heart Baby Sheen, you can buy them online HERE. You must be warned though that there will no longer be restocks of this yarn in our store, so make each stitch count!
