As unique and virtuous as your baby!

I made this quilt from all post consumer recycled mint-condition cotton fabrics with a 100% organic cotton batting. Eco-parenting at it's most cozy and gorgeous!

The fabrics are pre-loved and have been pre-washed a number of times. Your baby's tender skin will come in contact with none of the harsh chemical dyes and sizing that new fabrics have.

The front was made from repurposed cotton woven button-down shirts and vintage fabric, including a couple of pieces of a sweet delicate print that was my grandmother's and a bit of this amazing bamboo print I seem to try to incorporate into as many projects as I can.

The back is a soft green flannel that’s been fuzzed up a bit from pre-lovin’. I chose a bright spring green thread for the quilting stitches, which stands out wonderfully against the other fabrics: quite dramatically so against the dark blue.
The binding was made all from one button-down shirt. I’m very proud of my bindings. They are double thickness and cut on the bias so they’re super durable.

The quilting was done by Sharon Peterson of Barnyard Quilting in West Fairlee, Vermont. After running her professional quilting service and quilt shop with her daughter for about 15 years, Sharon took a break last summer to hike the Appalachian Trail solo. And she's over 50. My role model!

This quilt is entirely practical for family life. It's easy as pie to wash and care for. All fabrics are cotton. The organic cotton batting is very light, yet warm. Perfect for use all year round. It will shrink about 5% when machine washed in hot to warm water and put in the dryer, creating an old-fashioned slightly scrunched look to the entire quilt. It can also be dried on the clothes line, of course. It may not shrink as much if kept out of the dryer and hot water. The batting has the wonderful light fragrance of roasting grain (think bread fresh from the oven).

Dimensions: 40 x 36 inches
