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...
