Though this design is available as a made-to-order quilt, it will be highly customised.
A central butterfly with decorative wing patterns, surrounded by 3 roses and leaves - 2 blooming flowers in the bottom corners, and a rosebud centred at the top.
Within the wings, hearts, dots and handprints create dynamic patterns.
To achieve this, each family member traces their hand (including the base of their palm) and this 'handprint' is turned into a fabric silhouette of their hand.
All surrounded in several borders - a thin, plain black border, a thicker border of a patterned fabric of your choice, then another thin, black border.
The amount of hands that can fit on the quilt depends on the:
- Quilt size
- Number of individual family members to be represented
Please take these factors into consideration when selecting your quilt size.
We used different shades of 3 colours throughout the entire quilt - purple, white and black. You may use whatever colour combination you like.
If you want to incorporate yellow, we recommend that the base (i.e. fabric it's placed against) NOT be white/cream - the yellow will not stand out enough.
We made the thin borders solid black to tie in with the black butterfly base. You can choose a different colour if you wish.
An all-over rose, hearts or swirl design using a cotton thread in a suitable colour to your colour scheme.
Knee Rug - Adult (1.5 m x 1.5 m)
Made with 100% cotton fabrics and wadding.
Washing machine- and dryer-friendly.
Please allow approximately 3 - 5 weeks to create. The handprints take time for you to collect and are time-consuming to sew.
Fabrics may vary from those displayed in images due to availability.
