Elevenses Quilt - Full instructions and starter kit

ELEVENSES STARTER KIT

Finished size 56x56”

 This quilt is a celebration of the truly British tradition: tea at 11 o’clock, “Elevenses”. Fused and machine appliqué, simple piecing and machine quilting. If you are passionate about hand work, than the appliqué and quilting could just as easily been done by using your favourite method.

50cm of cream fabric for the background of appliqué blocks

1.5m of Stripe fabric of the wide border

75cm of the red floral fabric for the narrow border and the binding

5 fat quarters of polka dots for the appliqué, sashing around the blocks and small squares (the placing of these is left up to you, there is no right or wrong!)

5 fat eights of gingham and tone on tone fabrics for the appliqué and small squares (the placing of these is left up to you, there is no right or wrong!)

6 fat eights of coordinating patterned fabrics for appliqué and small squares, including the preprinted crockery for dresser and the cakes for the shop (the placing of these is left up to you, there is no right or wrong, just make sure you keep enough for the appliqué!)
