A lovely surprise!

Isn’t it wonderful when a surprise package drops through the letterbox? It’s even better when that package contains something as gorgeous as this.


It’s a mini quilt, sent to me by my great friend Jule from Germany. Jule writes a fantastic blog called Beyond the Boudoir. I can’t thank her enough for taking the time to make something so beautiful for me.

    katechiconi is right it does glow. The fabrics are lovely and the folding rather than stitching makes it very different. It is a very special gift,made with love, I know you will treasure it.

  4. I’d love to see your version of the pattern. 🙂

  6. Gorgeous colors and interesting technique!!!!!

  7. That’s beautiful!

  8. That is really lovely – the choice of different tones works so well. How will you display it?

    • I’ve carefully attached a small strip of fabric to the back and it’s hanging in my hallway. The strip is just below the binding so you can’t see it when it’s hanging. It looks fab!
