The patches have been cut from bits of denim that had had pockets on them, or seam allowances, or something, to give the quilt a well used look and feel. I guess that makes it shabby chic.
The quilt measures 59" by 43"- 150cm by 110cm. There are no rivets or hard seams left in, so it's beautifully soft.
The reverse side is made from white sheeting, so the whole thing is machine washable. Being denim, the quilt is quite heavy, which is why the shipping is a little higher than my other items.
