This beautiful and mesmerizing bicycle quilt is a work of art and brings out the creativity in your quilting. Desdens are fun to make, capturing a vintage theme using 30’s repro prints. Dresdens make perfect bike wheels, putting your prints on display. Make this adorable bicycle quilt using a choice of two colorways with photo suggestions provided in the pattern, or use your own colorways. You can also personalise the contents of the basket.
Sally Manke, the designer of the ‘Whimsical Bicycle Art’ quilt pattern includes 2 pages of templates to create flower baskets and bike parts, as well as a full sized template for the bicycle.
