Inspired by a long-awaited trip to the U.K. Lesley has designed this beautiful new offering for Block of the Month. It features thatched cottages, hanging baskets, a wheelbarrow laden with flowers, a rose window, wisteria gatehouse, and other equally beautiful themes reminiscent of an English Country Garden.
The quilt is a large Queen size ~ 23ocm square (90 1/2") and it is being offered in two colourways: antique blue and peach, while stocks last. The finished quilt is pictured in the antique blue, and the fabrics for the peach version are shown below. The only difference is the large outer border, the inner border, part of the pieced border, the framing border around the central medallion, and the cottage, which will be soft peach in place of blue. In short, where there are large expanses of blue there will be peach. The embroidery colours are almost identical in the two versions. The central block "The Cottage" is pictured below in Peach as a work in progress. As soon as the peach version has been finished, we will post photos here. You can, however, declare your preference when you order, and we will do our best to accommodate this.
The Block of the Month goes over 18 months. The price includes pattern and fabric for the quilt top, including the binding. The price below includes postage within Australia and New Zealand. Price for other overseas is $49 per month, with all the inclusions ~ pattern, fabric, and postage.
