“Quilter on the Orient Express” Original Quilt Design

“Quilter on the Orient Express” – Original Quilt Design

Quilt Inspiration –  I wanted to commemorate our 30th wedding anniversary trip on the Orient Express from Venice to London with a special quilt.

The quilt colors were taken from the colors of the Orient Express train line which are royal blue and gold. I felt that the intricate blue and gold paisley fabric represented well the luxury of the experience. The contrasting brown trim picks upon on all the beautiful detailed wood trim inside the train cars. I chose the envelopes block pattern for all the letters my husband and I used to write during the years we were apart before we were married.
