Vintage Chintz Fabric Panel
A gorgeous reproduction vintage chintz square fabric panel. The Quilters' Guild Collection amazingly has 2 copies of this panel, one is the centre piece for the Sidmouth Quilt and the other remains unused.
The panel features rose motifs around a central scene of a bird feeding its young in the nest beneath a branch of an oak tree. As it was never used the colours of panel have been fantastically preserved, retaining the vivid blue which is so liable to fade to green when exposed to light over time.
Traditionally these block printed panels were bought for use as the centres for medallion quilts and coverlet or to be used in home and and soft furnishings.
We have painstakingly digitally remastered the image from the original unused panel and printed it on 100% fine cotton calico fabric. Each panel measures 13" (33cm) square.
