This item is made from nine different cotton fabrics in shades of red and peach with just a hint of bluish-purple in one of the fabrics. Made with crazy quilt blocks, it has been quilted with a variety of machine embroidery stitches (see the close-up of one block, second photo). The topper measures approximately 28 x 28 inches (71 x 71 cm) and is backed with a cozy flannelette print of tiny pink rosebuds on white. All fabrics, threads and batting are cotton.
I launder my quilted items for two reasons. First, so they acquire that "puckery" look much loved in quilted things. And second, so you don't get any surprises when you launder them yourself.
