Our mission at Hometown is to encourage you all to quilt and craft! We hope that our bright and cheery shop, extensive ranges of cotton quilting fabrics and friendly classes inspire you all to pick up your needles and sew. At any one time there will be many quilts on display in the shop which are either workshop samples or vintage quilts from Marion's collection.
At the moment we do have several handmade quilts for sale in the shop as well as the Song Thrush quilts shown below. Alternatively we are happy to sell quilts from the website and post them to you. Just give us a call on 01634 838880.
Shown above are a selection of Song Thrush Quilts, each measuring 72 x 87cm (28 x 34in). Two patchwork designs are available - Simply Squares and White House Cube in a variety of colours. Each quilt is hand made in Kent by Mavis Haslam using a selection of Hometown cotton fabrics. The quilts contain either Eco wadding (70% recycled cotton/30% recycled polyester) or Soft & Elegant wadding (80% cotton/20% polyester). The quilts are machine quilted in a grid design and bound in coordinating cottons prints. All quilts are one-offs and make a delightful present. The quilts are machine washable at low temperatures and slow spin cycle with a non-biological detergent. As well as the examples shown here there are more Song Thrush quilts for sale in-store. Each £40.00.
