Inspired by hand pieced fabric patchwork quilts, the Vintage Patchwork Blanketexplores the idea of combining different patterns using the iconic hexagon shape. The design is brought up to date by accentuating the geometric aspect of this patterning with the alternating stripes of mono-coloured motifs. A simple border is a nod to the binding technique found on many traditional quilts.
The sample is shown in Erika Knight Vintage Wool in Flax (MC), House Red, Drizzle, Dark, Iced Gem, Pretty and Steve. A great alternative is Blue Sky Fibres Woolstok
