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
