Changing the bed

New bedclothes today and a fresh quilt. It's the first time my Cherrywood quilt has been on the bed. It's only just about big enough but I made it as big as the amount of background fabric would allow. The navy is a Laura Ashley remnant, cotton and linen mix with a damask type weave and the plains are Cherrywood hand-dyes sewn into ninepatches with the five odd squares in the navy and set on point. I had it custom quilted by Mandy Parks of the Cat's Whiskers and she has done a beautiful job and created some lovely patterns to fit the space.
