A celebration of summer: a garland of strawberry fruit, flower and leaf motifs on a soft green background.
I’ve used a technique called fussy-cutting, or broderie persé, to create this pretty circlet; the technique involves cutting motifs out of printed fabrics, then reassembling them into a new design.
Once I’d cut the motifs out and fused them onto the background in a circle, I added a border in a strawberry-print fabric which complements the design beautifully. I then quilted by machine across the whole design in random straight lines, using pale green thread. As a final embellishment, I stitched on some little guipure lace flowers.
The quilt is backed in pale green; the edge is bound in a dark green print to complement the leaves, caught down prettily with a wavy machine stitch.
A hidden casing at the top back will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a large recyclable jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: 24in (61cm) square
Strawberry plants and flowers are so pretty, I embroidered bands of them by hand onto my wedding dress, and then used the same motifs on our wedding stationery. Recently I’ve been creating quite a few garland wall hangings, using this technique of fusing and machine-quilting; sometimes I fussy-cut the motifs from print fabrics, and sometimes I cut my own shapes from plain and print fabrics. You can see more of these designs in the rest of the Garlands Collection in my shop.
