Patchwork for a Princess (or a Prince!)

A recent purchase for the shop is this fabulous traditional hand stitched hexagon patchwork bedspread. The mostly 1970's cotton prints in vibrant colours, make it a very jolly piece.

I was trying to judge the size of it before offering it for sale...The hexagons have been hand stitched onto a pure white cotton sheet. Here it is shown on a 4' double bed, with the sheet touching the ground...So I think it would easily fit a standard double, as well as a king-size bed.

Ideal for making a statement in an otherwise plain room.

I've always found that children love patchwork items...They take great joy in looking at all the designs amongst the fabrics, choosing favourites and also those they're not so keen on...

Using cafe clips to hang it, the top edge could be folded over and the quilt utilised as a curtain in a child's room. Perfect for keeping out the winter draughts...

Then in the summer, it could be taken down from the door or window, and used as a picnic blanket. The cotton fabrics make it easy to launder.

I've priced it at ***** - Great value for money when you consider all the work someone has lavished upon it...and its a one-of-a-kind too!
Thank you for your interest - The bedspread is now reserved.

Thanks for stopping-by,
