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

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.
