Devon County

– by Karen Styles

Like Elizabeth’s Dowry, Karen Styles’ new collection was also inspired by the Mariner’s Compass Quilt. The quilt was made by Mary Cann, who lived in Devon (a county in Southwest England) at the time. As a personal tribute, Karen named the 22 individual prints for Mary and her daughters, along with the names of “those who work at the Quilters Guild of the British Isles, my children and a group of women and men who have influenced me throughout my life. The fabrics are an eclectic mix of antique reproduction fabrics that could fit into any style of quilt… from reproduction to modern and all styles in between”

** Minimum cut – 20cm
