Quilt for December



Nice, wintery look for December. The colours and patterns are so cosy and inviting – I  just want to wrap up in it and read a good book.












The quilt is made up of reproduction 19th century woven cotton tartan prints and a striped one for the backing.  The wadding/batting is Warm and Natural Cotton which I frequently use for reproduction work.



This quilt measures 55” square. It is entirely hand pieced in the square on point pattern, hand quilted, and finished with knife edges.

I love squares set diagonally.

It's looking like 'take ALL the quilts out of storage' weather…

Beautiful. I agree, the tartan squares make it look warmer.

Thank you, both, for the comments. This quilt will be in use tonight, mostly for its warmth!
