A Labour of Love…

May 15th, 2012

A beautiful Regency dressed bed circa 1811~1820…
specially commissioned by my gorgeous client.

Her vision was very clear she wanted a simple patchwork quilt…
with a random pattern and a country feel for an attic room.

Happily… I accepted the challenge…
my patchwork contains 680 teeny tiny 7mm x 7mm squares

Now thats a lot of squares…
and I’m sure you’ll agree… a true labour of love.

A simple Regency dress has been thrown on the bed…
it pools on the floor, is highly detailed with its ruching and bows.

As always all hand~sewn by me…
After all that sewing… I think I deserve a cup of tea.
