Jingle Dangle Christmas Quilt

All the family can get together and snuggle under this very special Christmas themed quilt. It is crafted in a traditional square block design with feature star-pieced blocks interspersed. The fabrics I have used are a gorgeous range of bright and fresh cottons in delicious colours. Christmas fabrics can be so old fashioned but not these ones, which perfectly blend Christmassy patterns with vibrant colours in a really fresh and eye-catching way.

This special quilt measures a generous 48" x 68". It makes a very large sofa throw and is large enough to fit across the foot of a king size bed (or covers the top of a single bed entirely). It is backed with gorgeously soft and tactile red cotton flanelette and it has the finest quality "Dream Puff" batting inside which has a high loft making it super cosy but is very light weight, even warmer than wool. It really does give a quilt a gorgeous snuggly feel.

This lovely quilt is also easy to care for and can be machine washed on a gentle 40 degree cycle then line dried. A COOL iron may be used (so as not to flatten that delicious batting in the middle).

The quilt had been quilted both "in the ditch" (outlining each block) and also in a diagonal star pattern through each and every block.

The finishing touches are some jolly red dotty binding, all 232" have been traditionally hand sewn for a truly professional finish, and of course, a signature HenHouse patch on the reverse.

This is an heirloom piece to be brought out each and every Christmas, instilling warm memories in your family, to be passed onto the next generation...
