This children's patchwork quilt has been made in a crazy patchwork style with a mix of vintage and retro fabrics and embroidered linen. It's designed with a "storybook" theme and filled with a host of familiar characters and interesting pictures. The idea is that it can be used to tell stories either by an adult to a child or for a child to themselves.
This children's quilt measures approximately 90cm x 60cm so is perfect as a pram or cot cover. The fabrics on the front of the quilt date from the 1930's to the 1990's. All are strong and in excellent condition and this quilt is machine washable.
Patchwork quilts are constructed by sewing the fabrics to a calico backing. This is backed with a new, bright blue cotton with a layer of polyester wadding sandwiched between the two. The quilt is stitched with a bright pink embroidery thread to hold the layers in place and the edges are self bound with the backing fabric.
These Storybook quilts can be used on the floor as a playmat, in the car as a comforter and on a bed or buggy. They are crammed with characters and pictures from Rupert to Mr Plod and are designed to be treasured for many years - well beyond infancy.
Patchwork quilts can also be made to order - like the ones pictured below. To find out more please contact me.
