Diamond-shaped paving stones create a path alongside the flower-bed in this pretty wall hanging.
When I was arranging the square paving patches on this quilt, I tried putting them all 'on point' – diagonally – and really liked the effect. The stones are cut from a mottled sandy fabric, which makes them look nicely random in colour and tone. Beside the path I've added lots of different mid-pastel flowers and leaves which I 'fussy-cut' from several printed fabrics.
I bonded all the shapes onto the mottled green batik background, then added borders of a flower-and-leaf print in citrus colours.
Finally, I quilted by machine across the whole design, using a variegated thread and working in a random chequerboard design to echo the angles of the paving stones.
The quilt is backed in plain greeny-blue; the edge is bound in another green batik, caught down with a decorative 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: 25in (c64cm) square
Flowers have inspired artists and craftspeople for millennia. Virtually every ancient civilisation provides beautiful examples – not only realistic depictions, but stylised versions, repeat patterns, borders etc … I'm sure that one reason is because there's such variety in the world of flowers; we never run out of inspiration!
This is part of my Garden Path collection, and you'll find loads more designs featuring flowers in the Enchanted Garden, Garland and Rockery Garden collections, as well as dotted around in my main shop.
