This quilt is patchwork gone large. Huge blocks of colour in a gorgeously muted palette of mustards and greys are playfully etched with black looped embroidery in vertically and horizontally hand-stitched lines. It has a lovely illustrative quality similar to how a child might draw a map, complete with zebra crossings. The reverse is all grey with hand-stitched quilting and trimmed with a salmon coloured border.
