quilted inspiration

Look at these beautiful scraps from an old patchwork quilt. The creases and wear, the mottled colours and delicate prints and the history behind them; someone carefully hand stitching it all into place. I'd love to get in the dye lab and reproduce these quirky prints, watch this space, if I can get my hands on these gems, SS12 might be floaty tea dresses and bloomers in these prints!

These pieces were found at Ironing Board Studio, a beautiful online shop specialising in vintage textiles, based in the stunning Cotswolds (where I was born!). So many incredible things I want to display around the studio.
