navy gingham quilt.



A custom quilt.


Perfectly imperfect, in every way.


In which, tradition met modern on the East coast for an afternoon tennis match,


and fell in love. 

The hand-printed backing fabric on this quilt makes me melt. It's quite possibly the nicest fabric I've ever worked with. The price is reflective of the quality and the care put into creating this gorgeous textile. In other words, you won't find this in a bargain basement! It has the hand and drape of a buttery, vintage muslin, perfectly soft and broken in, truly a dream to sew with.  You can find it HERE, if you happen to be interested. I will seriously take this fabric into consideration when it comes time for  sewing for my hypothetical babies...until then...

Go make something!

So perfect! And that backing fabric must be so wonderfully soft - did you buy a 5m bolt, or did the customer send you the backing? I would be worried to have tried it without see it in real life first!

I love this quilt! I love the blue and white front and the fun print for the backing, with that wonderful pop of peach for the binding! Feels very nautical.

Thanks for for including the source information for the backing fabric. It's great to learn about a new supplier! I think it is so important to use the best quality fabrics for quilt backs--it makes such a difference in the finished product. Really lovely work!
