Matilda’s Quilt

This gorgeous quilt was made by Emma, for her daughter Matilda who is eight.  Emma wanted it to be special, so she asked me to quilt lots of feathers on it.


Matilda chose the orange backing fabric, and I think it was a perfect choice, so I am showing lots of photos.  There were three thread colours used on the quilt – brown, green and cream.  All three show beautifully on the back.

  6. Desley you turn quilts in to heirlooms. Your work is magical, I would not know which way to place the quilt on the bed, to display your quilting or the patchwork.
