Pre-order a kit for this one-of-a-kind antique quilt!
I have never designed a quilt featuring a Mourning print before, but I am loving how this quilt has turned out! Take a look at the two photos of the antique quilt that inspired me. It's truly a unique quilt.
I immediately fell in love with the way the colors popped against the graying Mourning print! And, oh how I adore the block!! Don't worry....there are no dreaded Y seams to piece or diamonds to cut. I redrafted the block for modern rotary cutting and piecing techniques.
The palette of the antique quilt is so very appealing to me. Perhaps without seeing the antique quilt, I wouldn't have chosen to pair reds, pinks, blues, blacks and gray prints together with the Mourning print, but I adore how they look together.
The Mourning print I chose to use is a very soft, sweet berry design and does not overwhelm the other prints in the collection. Choosing what prints to combine for each block was a blast, especially with how different they all looked. I promise you, this block is not a difficult one to piece together.
The quilt size is approx 77" x 90". Blocks are 9 inches finished.
Click on the photos above to see pictures of the antique quilt that inspired me, the fabrics in my Farmer's Daughter collection, and some of the blocks I pieced for the quilt. The quilt is currently being completed so I don't have a photo of my completed quilt just yet. But, you can see my Electric Quilt image of the quilt, which looks darker than what the quilt really is because EQ compresses the fabrics to fit on the printed page, so they appear darker.
The is a PREORDER for the Hands to Work quilt requiring a $ 50 non-refundable deposit. My Farmer's Daughter fabrics are available now, so once I know how many quilt kits I need, I will place the order, and be able to ship the quilt kit in July.
The total price for the Hands To Work quilt kit is $ 195.50 plus $ 8.95 shipping. Once the kit is ready to ship, I will send you a PayPal invoice $ 145.50 for the balance of the kit and the postage. The pattern ($ 12) is included FREE!!
You can opt to order the coordinating gray print with little red flowers quilt backing. It is specially priced at $ 10 yard when pre-ordering it with the quilt kit. 7 yards are needed, so the quilt backing is $ 70.
The Hands To Work quilt kit will not be available at all unless you pre-order now, so don't delay! Be sure to reserve a kit for this truly unique and beautiful replica of an antique quilt beauty!
As always, thank you so very much for your order. I truly appreciate your business!
