Rampant Rose Patchwork Quilt

This gorgeous handmade quilt features mouth-watering Spring colours and pretty rose prints. the fabrics are by the designers Jennifer Paganelli and Tanya Whelan, in shades of pink, yellow and turquoise. The top has been pieced with a variety of designs, rail fence, nine-patch and blocks featuring beautiful blowsy rose blooms.

This lovely quilt measures a generous 52" square, making a very large chair or sofa throw for the family to snuggle up with, a fabulous picnic blanket or of course, a pretty and practical bed covering.

The quilt has been made entirely traditionally and has top quality cotton blend batting inside and a lovely ditsy cotton backing with a feature panel of rosy fabrics. Your quilt can be just as lovely on the back as the front. The finishing touch is some cute aqua and pink binding, all 220" hand sewn for a professional finish. There is also a vintage fabric name patch.

This quilt is easy to care for. It can be machine washed at 30-40 degrees and line dried. A little shrinkage may occur because this quilt is made from cotton but that gives the delightful slightly crinkly look collectors of vintage quilts so covet. However, your quilt may be ironed with a cool-medium heat iron if you prefer.

Rampant Rose is priced at £160 including standard postage in mainland UK (please add £8 towards overseas postage, this quilt is heavy). If you require insurance coverage for the quilt's full value, please ask at the time of purchase, this is charged at cost. As always, please read my sales policies in the right hand sidebar.
