NEW - I have added a listing for the pattern for this quilt to my store.

This colourful quilt can be used as a wallhanging, for a baby, in a cot/crib, or for snuggling on the sofa. It was featured in Australian Homespun magazine (#87), as shown in the second photo.

I designed the quilt using my own colouring of the traditional Garden Path block. By playing with the colouring of each block, I created a radiating/medallion quilt in my signature style, in which it's hard to tell apart the individual blocks. Apart from the white background, it's made entirely from my favourite ever fabric - Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market.

I quilted in the ditch around all of the coloured sections to make them pop, and filled the background with dense white quilting. Some of the larger coloured areas have quilted swirls and leaf patterns to keep the texture consistent across the quilt. It measures 127cm (50in) square, is squared and lays/hangs flat.

The top is made from top quality quilters' cottons, and I've used Matilda's Own wool/cotton batting and white backing. The piecing is done with quality quilters' threads. All thread-ends have been hand-tied and buried in the quilting for neatness and durability. The binding is continuous with neatly mitred corners and invisibly hand-stitched down at the back. A discreet hanging sleeve is attached for immediate display.

I take great pride in my work, all the way through from the initial design to the finishing touches. The quilt is fully washable; I recommend washing by hand with a gentle detergent if required, but it can be put through the machine on a gentle cycle and tumble-dried on warm. Of course, testing on the back first is always a good idea. Dry the quilt flat in the shade. Keep your quilt art out of direct sunlight to retain the vivid colours.

The quilt comes from a completely smoke-free environment and has been kept away from pets.

If you have any questions about this quilt, or would like to commission another the same or similar (or even completely different!) please email me.

International shipping varies, and I will refund any charges more than $2 over my actual costs.

I love this pattern! The directions are clearly written and the designer is obviously very talented. Her enthusiasm for her craft and love of the process comes through. The creative approach to this pattern leaves plenty of room for individual interpretation. I have been collecting fabrics and cannot wait to begin my quilt. The product shipped within a few days of my order and I received it in less than a week despite the distance it had to travel. The shop owner was very responsive to my email queries and very encouraging. This was a very pleasant experience. Thanks. jmw
