Spellbound Quilt

MBS-spellbound-pin


She’s a modern-day gypsy wandering through the desert at  twilight, captivated by the dance of colors in a sunset on a far horizon. The only way to describe the magical feelings evoked by her experience is to say she’s Spellbound! The latest collection from Urban Chiks captures the bohemian spirit in a fresh color palette.

This quilt finishes at 59″ x 76″.
