Tuesday Treats: The Caswell Quilt, a beautiful applique quilt

This week I am featuring another popular Australian designer.

Threadbear, in Castlemaine, specialises in beautiful, detailed, applique quilts using reproduction fabrics and Corliss, the owner, has recently released a new pattern.

The Caswell quilt, pattern designed by Corliss Searcey

Corliss says the following about The Caswell Quilt:

This stunning quilt was inspired by the famous Caswell Carpet which resides in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.  It consists of 30 appliquéd blocks of flowers & leaves, birds & butterflies.  The pattern includes full size blocks and individual colour photos of all blocks.

Threadbear stocks Aurifil threads, so we were very pleased to be asked to pack special thread sets of Cotton Mako’ 50 for this new design.

Corliss selected 2 sets, of 4 colours each, that will allow you to applique all the blocks in this quilt.

With these two Cotton Mako’ 50 thread sets you will all the colours you need to applique the Caswell Quilt

What a great way to get a quick start on your applique!
