Her quilt design for the collection is "Kempton", named for a small village in The Midlands that was settled in the 1830s to 1860s -- the same time period as the original prints.
"Colonial homes of the same era as the fabrics, were my inspiration. Whether they were grand or simple workers cottages they had beautiful symmetry, lovely angled lines and could form patterns as they fit in together with other buildings. My design features four different blocks that are repeated in different quantities and arranged to flow out from the centre, like a village does," Deirdre explained.
