Photos and description are of similar beach quilts I've already made to give you an idea. This listing is for a custom-made beach quilt with an approximate size of 30in x 42in, though larger quilts are available.
The quilt can be used as a cot (crib) quilt, a play quilt, a wallhanging, or a bed-topper. I can attach a hanging sleeve if you wish. It will be squared and will lay/hang flat.
The top and backing are made from top quality quilters' cottons, and I use Matilda's Own wool/cotton batting. The piecing, applique and quilting are done with a combination of 100% cotton, embroidery threads and clear monofilament. The applique is fused and carefully stitched with machine blanket stitch, or invisibly sewn by hand to achieve additional depth.
The custom quilting adds further detail to the scene; swirly coulds, golden rays of sun, waves, seaweed and so on. Every single one of the many thread-ends from the applique and quilting are hand-tied and buried in the quilting for neatness and durability. The binding is continuous with neatly mitred corners and invisibly hand-stitched down at the back.
I take great pride in my work, all the way through from the initial design to the finishing touches. Your quilt will come with an individual label including care instructions, and can be personalised if you wish.
Being an art quilt, I don't recommend you put this through the wash, but handwashing is quite safe with a gentle detergent if required. Of course, testing on the back first is always a good idea. Dry the quilt flat in the shade. Keep your quilt art out of direct sunlight to retain the vivid colours.
The quilt comes from a completely smoke-free environment and has been kept away from pets.
