Elizabeth's Dowry Fabric
Elizabeth's Dowry is the delightful range of heritage fabrics from Marcus Brothers.
The fabrics are sold in measures of 25cm. For example if you would like a metre of fabric please put a quantity of 4 in your basket.
Designed by Karen Styles, Elizabeth's Dowry takes its inspirtaion from the Mariner's Compass Quilt which belongs to The Quilters' Guild Collection
The original quilt dates from 1820-30 and the reproduction fabrics are stunning in their design and and depth of colour as well as being incredibly versatile as they wouldn't look out of place in modern patchwork either. There are 23 fabrics in the range and a fabric panel which has five mariners compasses printed on it.
The Mariners Compass Panel is 57cm in length, the large central compass is aproximately 39cm in diameter and the four smaller ones are 19.5cm.
You might have noticed we've given the fabrics names, these are purely our own to help you order, the numbers shown are the manufacturers reference.
The fabrics are 100% cotton. Look after your fabric, wash for shrinkage before use and do not bleach.
