A Garden of Flowers Quilt

Spring has sprung and it's time to throw off those layers and brighten up your home with fresh, pretty colours.

This lovely patchwork quilt features an array of gorgeous 1930's reproduction ditsy print cottons and Cath Kidston florals interspersed with patches fussy cut from vintage embroidered cloths. So pretty!

The quilt measures a generous 48" x 68" so will sit atop a bed (the photo shows it on an oversized kingsize bed) or act as a beautiful throw in the living room or even garden now the better weather seems to be here. The quilt has quality 100% cotton batting inside and a cosy cotton flanelette (white) backing. I have bound the quilt with vintage candy striped cotton which I have hand sewn to the reverse for a professional finish. There is a little vintage embroidered linen name patch. The quilt has been machine quilted 1/4" either side of the main seam lines.

Your quilt is easy to care for and may be machine washed at 30 degrees then line dried. The cotton batting may shrink a little on washing (only up to 3%) but this will just give your quilt that lovely slightly crinkly look vintage quilt collectors so covet. A cool iron is possible if you like to restore a crisp finish. Most of all, this is a quilt that wants to be used and loved and become a family heirloom wrapped up in happy, snuggly memories.

Sold, many thanks This lovely quilt is priced at £180 including Special Delivery (fully insured) postage in the UK. Regular airmail overseas is available for an additional £5 (insurance to the full value would be extra).

A truly unique quilt for a special home.
