These DIY Quilt Kits make the perfect present, the choice of fabrics and thread colour is endless. Most start with a simple organic white soft cotton or indigo and play around with thread colour. Indigo makes a stunning backdrop for the Northern Stars design.
The quilt pattern paper is gently pulled away when the stitching is finished, revealing the final design...
A range of simple stitches in different colours can be used to delineate parks, lakes and rivers. The city maps can be personalised by appliqueing scraps of fabric to mark, for example: certain houses where favourite writers once lived, or perhaps where two soulmates met?
