This quilt is gorgeous against the backdrop of those wonderfully intricate middle eastern tiles. The colours look quite pared down.
But my taste in quilts is much more traditional. I love busy brightly coloured quilts, my absolute favourites are by Kaffe Fassett, but unfortunately I do not have the necessary £2000 to purchase one. Although if I was a wealthy soul it might be a different matter as his quilts are exceptional. Witness the two gorgeous examples below.
The neutral one on the top left is new season 'Toast' a mere snip at £275. Still too rich for me.
But luckily enough I found a pre-loved quilt last week in one of my local chazza shops, not in perfect condition and a little stained. But after 4 machine washes and a liberal drenching with 'Vanish' spray it's now looking mighty fine and I'm very pleased with it.
