Description

Pink embroidered roses from vintage linen, and sympathetic, newly embroidered blooms, combined with vintage fabrics in a pretty, fleece-backed quilt.

A vintage linen tablecloth yielded four large rose sprays in satin and split stitch, and a further eight small sprays of rose buds. Carefully choosing threads to match as closely as possible, I have stitched a central square in chain stitch. I have also stitched a further eight small roses - interspersed with original embroidery and printed fabric squares immediately surrounding the central nine large squares in this quilt. This quilt centre is then bordered with a glazed pink fabric, followed by a border of random-sized strips in pink and white prints (including some vintage Laura Ashley), then a final glazed pink border.

The patchwork is backed with a new, cream fleece throw. The central panel is hand-quilted using white crochet cotton. The border is machine quilted.

Materials were pre-washed to check for colour fastness. As a further precaution, the completed quilt has been washed and pressed. However, please do not use the quilt on any surfaces for which colour transfer could be a problem.

The quilt measures approximately 124 cm (48 inches) square.

I recommend a gentle hand wash, a short spin (as for a wool wash), then dry flat. Press using a steam iron, or a damp cloth, from the patchwork side - do not iron from the fleece reverse.

Inspiration

A pretty vintage tablecloth, embroidered with rose motifs needed a new beginning and this was my solution.
