Item details

‘Victoria’ is an entrancing quilt design using three tones of patterned fabrics, indigo, mid blue and cream, and traditional patchwork blocks and techniques to create a wonderful geometric cloth.

‘Victoria’ and her quilt brother ‘Albert’ were inspired by a visit to ‘The fabric of India’ exhibition at the V&A where I encountered a beautiful double woven cotton cloth called Khes which follows a grid system.

The cloths are often woven by mothers for their daughters as part of a dowry, and compared to the daughter and the love the mother has for her and is thus symbolically infused with life. I love the idea that a stitched cloth embodies love and life and how quilts are also passed from generation to generation.

With detailed instructions to guide you through the block construction and piecing, the pattern also includes lovely colour photographs, make it suitable for novice and experienced stitchers alike.

A detailed layout diagram showing the exact arrangement of fabrics and lots of supporting photographs, enables you to confidently re-create my design.

I love sifting through my stash and selecting fabrics to make my quilts – the beauty of this is that the quilt you make will always be unique and it means you will soon have room to buy more lovely fabric!

Victoria features three tones and uses indigo, mid-blue and cream patterned and texture fabrics from my collections for Moda. Here are the approximate yardages of each tone required:

For piecing the front:
o Indigo fabrics, ~2 yds total
o Mid-tone blue fabrics, ~1 yd total
o Cream fabrics, ~3 yds total

For binding:
o Mid-tone blue fabric, 2/3 yd

For backing:
o 4 ¼ yds fabric (one horizontal seam)

The finished quilt measures 70 x 70 inches.
