Kelmscott Part Two

I have now quilted several variations of Michele Hill’s Kelmscott quilt.   This beautiful example is Ruth’s quilt. 

Ruth asked me to quilt it in a similar manner to the one depicted in Michele’s book, with circles around some of the appliqué, and a combination of background fills of meandering, echoing, and peacock feathers.

To see some other variations of this quilt click the links below.

And probably my favourite, Margaret’s Quilt, as she gave me a lot of scope for quilting feathers between the appliqué blocks.

I have linked to Esther’s Blog for her WIP on Wednesdays.


  1. What a great pattern, the applique is superb - as is your quilting of course Desley! Perfect!

  2. A lovely quilt and your quilting is beautiful. How nice that you have been able to quilt more than one.

  4. Its amazing how the addition of Celtic applique and different quilting can really change a quilt but both look fantastic! Beautiful!
