The pastel colors in this quilt are soft and gender neutral; they will fit in almost any room. This unique piece will make a perfect housewarming gift or shower gift for either a bride or new mother. It will be a beautiful accent piece draped over a couch or chair. And, oc course, It is also an ideal size for a one of a kind crib quilt.
Made in a time honored and traditional pattern, this quilt truly has a modern flair. It is what is called a crazy quilt.
A crazy quilt is made from odd pieces of fabric sewn to a muslin foundation. Originating in the Victorian era, crazy quilts were often highly embellished pieces of fancy fabrics. Mine is made of beautiful solid pastel cottons. I used the flip and sew method for constructing the 12 blocks that make up this little crazy quilt. Each block has a random placement of color and shape to create a truly unique piece.
The fabric is all cotton. The batting is Warm and Natural cotton/ poly blend.
The quilt is made of pastel solids color fabric with one very tiny lavender pinstripe in several blocks. The backing is a lavender shirting stripe- a fine stripe on a white background. The sashing and double binding are a soft sea green. I have machine quilted the entire front in a meandering pattern in white cotton tread. The binding is machine stitched to the front and hand sewn to the back.
This quilt was, designed and sewn in my cat free, smoke free home. I do have one very special cocker spaniel.
