Rainbow Chevron Quilt

Taking inspiration from the fabulous crocheted ripple blanket which has been so popular in recent years,  I decided to translate this into quilted form.  I have married fresh crisp white cotton with an array of colourful cottons, which take their cue from designs of the 1930s,  to create this unique quilt.


This quilt measures approximately 48" x 60" and would make a fabulous throw on the sofa or in the garden, a cool picnic blanket or look pretty sitting atop the foot of a bed.  It has been made with the finest quality cottons and has a mid-weight batting so it is warm without being heavy.  Ideal for the warmer weather of Spring layered with pretty sheets and pillowcases.

It has been machine quilted outlining the main seams.  The quilt has been backed with a gorgeous vintage-style rosebud print cotton by Cath Kidston which is lovely and soft.  There is a HenHouse name patch crafted from a vintage embroidered linen attached to the back and the colourful pink chevron binding has been hand sewn to the reverse for a truly professional finish.

Your quilt is easy to care for:  wash in the machine at 30 degrees and line dry.  Use a cool iron if you prefer a crisp finish; personally, I love my quilts a bit rumpled!

This quilt is priced at :

£185 plus P&P

UK Special Delivery = £10.00

Sweet Sherbet Squares Quilt

May I present this decidedly pretty quilt to you.

I am so very proud of this one!  I have taken my favourite 1930's inspired ditsy floral cottons and patchworked them in a traditional style, the result being this beauty of a quilt in a classic "sixteen patch" design.

The quilt top is a myriad of pretty 2" cotton squares, 1344 squares to be exact!  This quilt has been machine quilted in a cross-hatched style, the top and backing being crafted from best quality cottons, and cosy cotton blend batting is sandwiched inside for maximum warmth and snuggliness whilst being lovely and light.  The quilt is finished with pink gingham binding which has been hand sewn to the reverse for a professional finish.  A HenHouse label has been attached in the corner on the back.

The quilt measures approximately 49" x 58", perfect to top a bed, snuggle with on the sofa or use as a picnic rug.  It would equally make a stunning wall hanging.

This quilt is easy to care for and can be machine washed at 30 degrees, line dried and a cool iron may be used if you like a crisp finish (I like them loved and wrinkly, myself!)

This quilt has taken many hours of stitching with the utmost care and attention, I know it shall delight its new owner and be a treasured family heirloom for years to come.

This special quilt is priced at £220.  SOLD, MANY THANKS


UK Special Delivery £10
Overseas Regular Airmail (uninsured) £16

Gold Rush Quilt

I have used some lovely, bright and colourful prints to craft this rather delightful quilt.

The bold cottons are mainly from fabric ranges designed by the renowned Sandy Klop of "American Jane" fame, some feature punctuation marks and the alphabet, others have vintage style florals and spots,  and I have combined these with pure white cotton for a fresh, clean feel.  The blocks combine four different fabrics in an "hourglass" formation and are set on point, so much to delight the eyes especially of a lucky little one.

The quilt has top quality cotton blend batting and is backed with a lovely cotton cowboy print.  The quilt has been machine quilted outlining the main seams.   Finally, I have used  a co-ordinating check binding which has been hand sewn securely to the reverse for a truly professional finish.

I have for now called this the "Gold Rush" Quilt because it does remind me a little of the Wild West, yee haw!  I have left the name patch unfinished so that if desired, I can personalise it as the purchaser wishes, maybe with the name of the intended recipient.

This quilt measures approximately 32" x 48".  It would be ideal for a cot/crib, also as a play mat on the floor or as a wall hanging and of course, ideal for cuddling on the sofa or in the pram.  It is nice and light but warm and easy for a little one to manage.

It will wash up a treat at 30 degrees in the machine and I recommend line drying.  The quilt can be ironed on a low heat but I personally love that slightly crinkly look a quilt has once it has been laundered and loved.

A quilt to be snuggled and cosied up with for years to come, entwined with special family memories.

The quilt is priced at £125.
