This lovely quilt is quite unusual and is reminiscent of floral needlepoint embroideries, recreated here using a subtle mixture of solid fabrics on a dark peacock background. The design is made up of just squares in a single size, so there’s lots of easy cutting and sewing, although for the best result you do have to match up seams neatly when sewing the patches together. For the background, individual squares are used throughout rather than strips, to continue the appearance of an embroidery. We’ve also made a pieced backing for the quilt and instructions are given for making this if you choose this option.
The kit includes all material needed for quilt top and binding. Backing is not included. You will require 5 yards for the backing. There are alternate directions for a pieced backing also (material is for this version is not included). These are all Tilda solid fabrics as per the pattern. No substitutions have been made.
The pattern is now available as a free download on the Tilda blog (www.tildasworld.com). We are not allowed to include the printed pattern due to copyright, but you can print it from the above website.
