Hanky Panky Quilt

I have beavered away to offer you this beautiful and special patchwork quilt. The top has been lovingly pieced from stunning vintage-style handkerchief panels which have been set on point with pretty log cabin panels in co-ordinating fabrics with ditsy floral patterns. The colours are drawn from a gorgeous palette of pastel blues, pinks and greens.

This quilt measures a large 69" x 42" (you could get out your tape measure to assess the size accurately if needs be). It would look superb as a throw over the foot of a bed or over a sofa and really super in an outdoor setting, maybe in a summer house or on a bench? It has been made from premium quality cotton fabrics and has cosy pink cotton flannelette backing. The quilt has been quilted using a pretty variegated pink thread.

The batting is a top quality cotton blend making your quilt easy to wash and dry, (wash at 30 degrees and line dry). Minimal shrinkage may occur giving you that highly-coveted vintage look but you can use a cool iron to restore the crisp feel if you prefer.

I have bound this quilt in the traditional way, using blue gingham for a country feel, and hand sewing all 220" of it to the reverse by hand for a true quality finish. The finishing touch is a vintage embroidered name panel to the back corner of the quilt.

This quilt is truly one-of-a-kind and is available for purchase at £225 including postage in the UK by Special Delivery (insured). Please add £8 for overseas insured postage. Please contact me at to reserve and as always, my sales policy is available for you to read in my right hand sidebar.
