The timeless comfort of an antique quilt
Whether its the charm of soft and soothing 1950s florals or bold and colourful eye-catching graphic patterns, antique quilts offer a unique way to spruce up your bedroom. Available from various periods, these quilts can be found in styles to perfectly match your home or in designs that will create a perfect statement piece.
Patchwork quilts come in a range of delightful patterns known as cobweb or spiderweb designs, orange peel layouts, star of LeMoyne, country style baseball block, and log cabin Carolina lily to name but a few. Keep an eye out for the extra special tulips appliquéd into a design for additional style.
A stitch in time
If quilting's a hobby you're au fait with and its unique cloth you're after, look no further. Seek out old cotton feedbags in all sizes and patterns to add towards a collection of vintage swatches to stick together with your ideal patchwork of appliqué and fabrics. Or perhaps you have inherited some quilts that have seen better days. Vintage fabrics can be used to restore a well-loved and cherished favourite vintage quilt, ensuring they can be passed along for others to enjoy.
