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
