Allsorts of goodness

The Allsorts Quilt - red/pink colourway and blue/green colourway

Okay so, we're usually not into the whole gender specific thing - pink for girls, blue for boys, yadda yadda yadda. BUT! A few weeks ago we were printing Ginkgo in Dusty Pink for a custom order and decided it looked really, really good. And then we decided the Dusty Pink colour would look great beside our Deep Red colour. and Almond. And Charcoal. Oooh!

We got very excited. And thus the idea for a quilt was born.

Of course, we're not in the business of making quilts. We're in the business of encouraging YOU to make a quilt. So we came up with a kit! One that uses our 47 x 47 "fat quarter" pieces, is super easy to put together, is modern in design and a bit random.

We couldn't just do a pink version though, so we also came up with this more gender neutral/boy friendly blue & green version which we also love!

So we'll be launching the quilt kits this weekend at Bowerbird and Finders Keepers, yay! The finished size measures 120cm x 150cm (so perfect for a cot or single bed) and the quilt top kit will be available for $125. Backing and binding and batting available separately.

Hope you like it as much as we do!

P.S. - please excuse my hurried photography :)

Oh what yummy quilts!

Anna said...

Oh gosh, oh gosh, oh gosh!

The only problem is deciding which one to get because both colorways are so beautiful and I could find a place for each!

Beautifully done, ladies!

I love the blue one! But that's a really biased opinion as everything in my room is blue, aqua, turquise...

Oh I LOVE them both! I can't decide. Are you going to have them in your shop? Are there any left from the markets?
