A garland of citrus fruits and leaves is draped between two ribbon bows.
A riot of oranges, lemons and limes create the garland; for a realistic effect I've cut them, and the leaves, from batik and marbled fabrics in citrus colours. For the bows I chose a sumptuous colour-scheme of rich red and gold, and the floral background fabric picks up all the colours of the design perfectly.
All the shaped patches are edged with lines of black machine stitching; this creates a lovely sketchy outline effect, and also quilts the panel. The whole piece is backed in pale green, and 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 or a recycled cardboard box. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.

At university I had to take one paper outside my own faculty (English Literature, believe it or not …), and I chose Italian Renaissance Art. As a result of this course I got to know the work of Luca Della Robbia, and I particularly liked his glazed terracotta roundels; what I particularly liked were the garlands of brightly-coloured flowers, fruit and leaves which he used to frame the white sculptures in the centre.
This design is very much inspired by these garlands, and I've used one of my favourite techniques – what I call scribble-stitching, or doodling by machine – to give the individual patches a subtle stained-glass effect.
