Art Gallery’s Rapture


Inspired by the beautiful blue/teals, yellows and pink/peach hues of Art Gallery’s ‘Rapture’ and autumn sunset, I have set about making a new quilt for my 3 year old daughter (who has desperately been asking for a quilt of her own-  her brother and sister have already got one of their own for their big beds).

Not wanting to disappoint, I put a lot of thought into how I would construct this to create a sweet unique blanket especially for her.

I salvaged some hand embroided table linen that had beautiful pink flowers to include in the construction of the quilt in the centres of the Dresden Plates. 

All materials, waiting for me to start 🙂
