A few weeks ago, Adrianne from On The Windy Side, put out a call for pattern testers for her lovely new quilt pattern "High Tea".The High Tea" pattern includes versions for sizes ranging from baby to Queen size - I tested the Throw quilt /single bed size which finishes at 56" x 69".
This size of the pattern calls for a couple of charm packs or 20 layer cake squares, along with about a metre each of the two background fabrics for the sashing.
This is really a fabulous pattern and it came together very quickly due to the way the quilt is constructed, the main seams "nest" quite well and match up easily.
I had ordered a layer cake to use for this quilt which unfortunately went missing:( Then, as I was running out of time, I decided to cut my own charms from the "What A Gem" fabricx by Allison Cole, along with a few coordinating prints from Spotlight.
I really liked how well the navy, coral and emerald went with the grey and white solid background.
And the colours match well with my daughters room too.Whilst this pattern is a great way to use up charm squares, it is also suitable for larger scaled prints.
This was my first time using the popular Britten number fabric from Ikea, which makes a fun backing!
