Quilt Inspiration – The herringbone pattern may be a traditional tweed pattern used in country gentlemen’s clothing, but bright colors on a light grey background updates the pattern to a modern look.

The colors in the quilt were inspired by the many colorful houses in the Notting Hill neighborhood of London, set against grey fabric that is inspired by London’s grey skies.

The back of the quilt is a rainbow made from the leftover fabric and is also set against “grey skies”.
