Diospyros quilt top

I’ve been working with a Basic Grey Persimmon jelly roll lately and have finally finished the top, ready for basting on my favourite extra large floor this weekend (once I have sorted the backing of course). I’ve not yet decided on a quilt pattern, but I’m thinking something nature-y, like maybe some vines and leaves, and an orange peel border.

A happy coincidence is that the flower shapes look like the flowers of the Persimmon (or Sharon Fruit in the UK) plant, part of the Diaspyros genus, hence the name I’ve decided upon for this quilt.




I’m now getting on with some longer term WIPs!

    I had no idea that a persimmon was a Sharon fruit. Funny how one name makes it male and the other female. They’re nice though, though not as nice as dragon fruit. You should make a dragon fruit quilt next, or a dragon plant quilt. I had a dragon plant in Poland call Spike. he was my smoczka plantka. Smoczka is dragon, planktka is made up.
    fab colours in the quilt, loving the choice of background fabric

    Vines and leaves would look good!

    That’s beautiful! And the border sets it off perfectly. I’m rubbish with quilting but vines and leaves sounds good 🙂
