OK, that was a really stupid idea. “Let’s make Chris a Good Luck quilt in a day so he can have it for his launch”. Argh! Anyway, I am very happy with the result.
When you get a chance to have a look at the beautiful Tilda fabrics and products, the gorgeous books etc, you will see a real classy shabby chic look where you can combine lots of different prints and products to get a beautiful eclectic style.
I wanted to capture this in a scrappy quilt, using all the fabrics in the range Chris had sent me. This is what I came up with!
It’s scrappy, good fun with its 3D prairie points and very pretty due to the beautiful little prints in the range.
The quilt measures 36” x 48”, so it makes a great throw quilt. You could easily make it bigger by putting a 6” border of one of the larger beautiful florals around the outside. I just didn’t have enough fabric in my precious samples!
I did however manage to make a little journal cover from my Culture Club traveller’s journal cover, and a little quilt with “Tilda” on it ready for AQC (Shhhh!)
Anyway, the pattern is drafted and off to Miss Emma for editing and we will have it on our www.chandlerscottage.com website in a week! Oh, I forgot to mention Rob grabbed the fabrics before I cut them up and scanned them, so you can see them on the website as well, with a pre-order special as I am told by a very reliable Giraffe they will be here by April!
