This beautiful quilt was original made in England between 1851 and 1880 by Mavis Roberts, the quilt is now located in Melbourne. This quilt is all needle turn appliqué with freezer paper underneath and as well I am offering the stitch and wash technique. You will start with the centre medallion, and the rest of the quilt will be offered as blocks of the month.
The first month starts with the centre medallion panel pattern which costs $120.
The fabric kit for the centre medallion costs $103.45, and this includes 55 fat 16ths, one fat quarter and 3 fat 8ths. With the fabric kit I am including a detailed explanation of what fabrics to use.
The background fabric is cream and 7.5 metres is needed, and should be purchased in one piece. We are selling this currently for $109.50, so the total cost for the fabric centre and background is $212.95. And I am recommending that you set aside this quantity of fabric for the quilt, as not to be disappointed with changes in fabric colours.
Then the rest of the quilt is completed in two stages, an inner border, which is 24 blocks and one border, costing $20 per month plus postage for 12 months. This includes two flower blocks each month.
The final stage, has 35 blocks and one border, costing $30 per month plus postage for 12 months.
We can provide fabric packs for these two stages, or you can use your scraps.
