Vintage Style Lap Size Memory Blanket


Do you love vintage style? Are you looking for something a little different than the 'normal' memory quilt or blanket.

Introducing the 'Vintage Style' Lap Size Memory Blanket.

This beautiful design captures a bygone era where quilts were often made from scraps of leftover fabrics from the clothing mother had used to make hers and her children's clothing. Scraps were often quite small and could be an eclectic collection of fabrics. It was also a time when 'prettiness' was so important too, and you valued and treasured everything you had. This is something that is often forgotten in the fast paced times we now live in, where you can easily buy whatever you need quickly and easily, and fashions and homestyles are ever changing.

This gorgeous blanket is made using smaller squares than I usually work with. The fabrics are cut into 4 inch squares and this design works best with lots of cotton fabrics in a variety of patterns and not too many large appliques. The blanket is finished with a cotton backing fabric (as minky fabric wasn't around all those years ago) of your choice and has a beautiful 3″ wide broderie anglaise frill around the whole edge of the blanket. It is quilted by the 'stitch in the ditch' method around each and every square to provide stability to the blanket, and has a central layer of plain cotton fabric sandwiched between the patchwork top and the cotton back for extra weight and thickness. The price includes one personalised short messaage or name of up to 6 words, with the option to add another quote or photographs as checkout.
