Colourful citrus fruits and bright green leaves decorate the four square blocks of this summery quilt, bordered by sashing strips in a pretty floral print. Hang it on your wall, or use it as a sofa throw to add a splash of colour to your living room.
Each block is decorated with arrangements of oranges, lemons and limes plus foliage; I've cut the motifs from a selection of printed fabrics in citrus colours and leaf greens, which gives the quilt a folk-art feel. The background squares are a turquoise-and-white polka-dot print, and the sashing/border strips pick up all the colours in the rest of the design.
All the shaped patches are edged with lines of black machine stitching; this creates a lovely sketchy outline effect, and also quilts the panel. Around the inside of each background square I've worked a line of wavy machine stitch in toning thread.
The whole piece is backed in pale green, and the edge is bound in a green batik fabric to complement the leaves, caught down with another line of the decorative 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.
Size: c27in (70cm) square
A few years ago we hired a cottage in the Italian hills; the bus dropped us in a tiny village, and the house was then a 15-minuted climb up a very steep road out of the village (pulling our suitcases behind us). The land around the house was planted with all kinds of fruit trees, and one of the greatest pleasures – along with watching the local lizards – was heading out there each morning and choosing the selection of sun-warmed fruit that we would eat that day. I think that this little quilt captures the mood of those sun-drenched days!
