I have a beautiful quilt to share with you all today.
The fabric in this quilt is exclusively Liberty of London Tana Lawn and Linen, even the gingham is a linen and let me tell you this quilt is just so soft and squishy. I am sure it will just improve with washing and love.
The design of this quilt is based around the two screen printed Bonnie and Neil tea towels that the new owner of this quilt had collected. Each square, strip and row of this quilt was figured out step by step as the quilt top grew.
This was such an exciting method to explore. The options were endless which was so fun. At times though, it was so hard to decide which option to choose next.
The back of the quilt is also pieced although with a more simplified design.
Ultimately this quilt is reversible!
This quilt is BIG it’s about 240cm or 94″ square. That’s bigger than my super king sized doona! The pictures show the quilt on my king sized bed in the Blue room and on our queen sized bed in the guest room. As you can see this quilt knows how to cover a bed…
I called in a local long arm quilter to quilt this for me. The new owner wanted straight lines. We decided on this 4″ grid design to make sure this quilt can last through many wash cycles in the machine.
I finished of the edges with my favourite striped binding. I added in a peeper of mustard around the binding too for a little added pop. This detail alone has given me a new appreciation for mustard. Just look how dreamy it is between the striped binding and the navy gingham linen – swoon.
Here are some more photos because I just couldn’t stop taking photos of this one.
This quilt was greatly inspired by Hopewood Home. Susan makes the most gorgeous big patch quilts. I have been avidly following her for the last couple of years on social media her feed is really beautiful.
This quilt has now headed off to its forever home.
