A colouring sheet is also inlcuded plus instructions to make a single block in case you wanted to go completely scrappy. How fun would that be!

The quilt shown here is the Double Bed size which uses 18 Fat Quarters. All the fabrics are from Ruby Star Society but are from different ranges.
A little Honey,  Darlings 2, Jolly Darlings, Smol and Strawberry and Friends. There is a Spark print in there too. As you can tell, I really like Ruby Star Fabrics.

There is of course a story behind the name of this quilt, Somerset Avenue. Over 20 years ago I bought my first house. It was in a new estate and I purchased a house and land package for the ridiculously low price of $145K. Wouldn't be amazing if you could buy a new house for that price! Anyway, the house was in Somerset Avenue. Fast forward those 20 or so years and I am back living in the same street. A full circle so to speak. So this quilt means so many things to me but mainly that life can change, circumstances can change but sometimes you end up back where you started. However I have also changed. I am not the same person that bought her first house.
This quilt design although simple has a layout that circles back. Much like my life.

I hope you love Somerset Avenue as much as I do.
