Double Full Patchwork Quilt

A bright double/ full size patchwork quilt / blanket done in thirties reproduction fabrics.
The traditional patchwork pattern I have used is called Faceted Jewels. The bright reproduction fabrics make the quilt sunny and bright. The pattern makes curves appear in the design.
A perfect addition to a girl's bed or a traditional country home d├ęcor. The background is "Kona Snow" - an off white cotton.
I have machine quilted in the ditch of the blocks, making it look like an old fashioned quilt. The batting in Hobb's 80 /20 (80% cotton - 20%poly) The navy blue binding is hand sewn to the back.
It measures 81 X 81 inches. The backing fabric is a blue paisley.
