|76" x 84" (a little full around the edges)|
It was described as a "cutter that would be a good design". So glad it didn't become a cutter and I'm pleased to give it a home.
Three borders - I can imagine the beautiful pillowcases at the head of the bed. Why bother with a fourth border?
It is appliqued in mainly solids fabrics.
The green is a pin dot.
It is completely done by hand.
The seller said it came from an estate in Indiana.
It is beautifully hand quilted with feathers and tulips filled with cross hatching.
I was able to show it to many quilters over the past few months and got lots of great feedback.
We worked with a couple of pallets. The first was a vibrant colorful collection of solids simulating what it might have looked like when it was first created.
The second, a soft faded colors it is now - with subtle prints.
Before I show you mine - would you reproduce it in original colors or the softer faded shades?
|Pattern available in our Etsy Shop|
We have patterned this quilt to share it with you.
The applique pattern is full sized - no taping or aligning registration pieces. The setting blocks and border are included. You could easily add a fourth border.
It is also your choice to center the borders or reproduce it as shown on the original.
The full sized pattern includes the original quilting lines for use in machine or hand quilting. The quilt is cross hatched between the feather and tulips quilting motifs.
Our patterns are currently in our Etsy Store HERE
So...would you make vibrant original colors? Softer aged colors? Centered borders?
Your feedback is welcome and greatly appreciated.
Have a great weekend!
