A while ago I was selecting some pre-cut fabric for the shop and the moment I saw the MicroLife Textures collection I was excited. The range is modern and sophisticated. It didn't take long before I wanted to use a Charm Square pack to make a cushion cover.
I loved the blend of colour in the collection and decided to make a quilt so here we are - a square quilt topper in an hour-glass layout. I mitred the corners of the blue borders and added a backing which has been pieced. Finally I added a scrappy binding made up of the colours used for the backing.
There is a 100% cotton wadding sandwiched between the layers. I quilted the piece using straight lines and used a domestic sewing machine and finished the binding by hand. The approximate measurements of the quilt are: 57" x 57" or 145 cms x 145 cms.
The quilt can be machine washed on a gentle setting.
The quilt would work well as a topper on a bed, as a wall hanging or even as a picnic blanket. If you would like a hanging sleeve added just contact me and I will add one at no extra charge.
