A delightful half-timbered house sports a thatched roof and a multicoloured garden of lace flowers.
Tudor buildings are full of character, with their distinctive daube and wattle, half-timbering and thatched roofs – and if you’re really lucky, your black-and-white house will be decorated with pargeting, and surrounded by a cottage garden! On this fabric picture I’ve used textiles to suggest the different parts of the design: a tan print fabric sprigged with little branches creates the thatch; lace flowers suggest the garden and the pargetting designs (patterns stamped into wet plaster); black velvet lace act as the window lintels and the large carved crossbeam; net works perfectly for leaded-light windows; and lines of black bias binding produce the half-timbering.
Heraldic Tudor roses decorate the cornerpieces of the design, and while I was designing this piece I happened upon the lovely flower-print fabric I’ve used for the border; its mediaeval feel complements the house perfectly. A black binding completes the picture, and the wavy stitch I’ve used to apply it picks up the red in the design.
A hidden casing at the top back of the quilt will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a large jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: 20 x 18in (51 x 46cm)
The traditional Tudor rose combines the white rose of the House of York and the red rose of the House of Lancaster, and became a heraldic symbol of England when the two houses were united on the marriage of Henry VII, of Lancaster, married Elizabeth of York. The motif of the Tudor rose became particularly associated with his successor, Henry VIII, who used it a great deal as he was descended from both houses.
