Saddle Up! Quilt

Here is a very special quilt for a very special little person. I have collected these wonderful vintage-style wild west prints for a few years now and finally brought them all together in one utterly unique quilt!

The top is pieced in a classic style from cotton fabric, and what a selection of fabric there is! One lucky little person is going to love studying all those patterns and pictures at bedtime. The batting is a top quality cotton blend with a mid loft, the backing is super cosy white cotton flanelette for maximum snuggliness. The quilt has been meticulously quilted "in the ditch" (outlining each block). The quilt has been bound with a lovely bright red polka dot cotton and all 220" have been hand sewn to the reverse as a quality traditional quilt deserves. There is a "Saddle Up" name patch to the reverse.

This is a large quilt, sized approximately 50" x 60" which will generously cover the top of a single bed and drape a little way down the sides or top a double bed. It's big enough to be really cosy but not so huge or heavy that a little person can't handle it themselves. This quilt is easy to care for and can be machine washed at 30-40 degrees and line dried. The quilt will look fabulous once washed, a little crinkly just like vintage quilts, but you can use a cool iron to restore a crisp look if you prefer. I think my quilts get better the more they are loved and used.

This wonderful one-of-a-kind quilt is sure to become a family treasure and will be a sterling part of a little one's memories of childhood. It is priced at £150 including post in the UK (plus £8 overseas). SOLD, MANY THANKS

Country Calico Quilt

This stunning quilt is a desirable blend of old and new, perfectly mixing both vintage and modern fabrics in classic country-style shades of red and blue.

It is a large quilt, suitable for the top of a king size bed or covering most generously a single/double bed or acting as a super throw in the garden to keep the chill off on Summer evenings. Quilt are super versatile: pair them with a top sheet in the Summer or layer them over your duvet and blankets in the Winter to ensure a great night's sleep.

This quilt measures approximately 54" x 66", the top is pieced entirely from cotton, the batting is high quality cotton blend with a mid-loft (70/30%) making it easy to care for and the backing is a lovely smooth cotton with a gorgeous ditsy floral pattern. The quilt has been quilted with straight lines either sides of the seams which give a lovely vintage-style traditional look. The quilt has been bound with a little red polka dot cotton and all 240" of it have been hand sewn to the reverse for a true professional finish. There is a little HenHouse name patch to the reverse.

Your quilt is easy to care for. It can be washed at 30 or 40 degrees in the machine then line dried. Very little shrinkage may occur which gives that fantastic vintage slightly crinkly look though you can use a cool iron on your quilt if you prefer to restore its crisp finish. I wash all my own quits and love them even more afterwards as they take on a much loved, cosy finish.

This special Country Calico Quilt is priced at £165 which includes standard postage in the UK. Please add £4 for insured postage in the UK and £8 for postage overseas. SOLD, many thanks

Summer Blooms Quilt

This stunning patchwork quilt has been crafted from the gorgeous "Delilah" range of fabrics by well known designer, Tanya Whelan. They are a beautiful medley of rose and floral print cottons in delicious shades of pink, red, green and blue with added polka dots and stripes. Very fresh and pretty, just perfect. The design is a lovely hotchpotch of differently sized patches for an eclectic, vintage-style look and has been well quilted in a criss-cross pattern.

This quilt measures approximately 45" x 60" and is perfect for a single bed but will also cover the foot of a double/king size bed. It would be equally fabulous as a throw in the garden or summer house or indoors to brighten up your living room or conservatory.

The top is pieced entirely from cottons and the quilt is backed with lovely pure white cotton flanelette which feels deliciously cosy. The quilt has been bound in the traditional way with a cute cream/pink heart cotton, all 210" of it sewn to the reverse by hand for a truly professional finish. There is a HenHouse label to the reverse.

The batting is a wonderful eco-friendly "Dream Green" low-loft polyester which makes your quilt light yet warm and easy to launder. Ideal to layer with other blankets and duvets or on its own on hot Summer nights. The quilt may be washed in the machine at 30 degrees and line dried. I love my quilts even more once they've been washed as they taken on that slightly crinkly, vintage look that collectors so love. (However, your quilt may be ironed with a cool iron if desired.)

The Summer Blooms Quilt is available for £145 including post in the UK (plus £8 for postage overseas). If you require insured postage, please request this at time of purchase, which is charged at cost (typically an extra £5 in the UK).

The quilt has been SOLD, very many thanks.

This is a really beautiful unique quilt made with the utmost love and attention and I have no doubt its owner shall be truly delighted with it...
