This listing is for a hand-made crib/lap size quilt (about 40"x50"). My quilts are all 100% hand made by me. I dye the fabric based on my own dye recipes, piece the tops, do all the quilting, and hand sew the binding. They are 100% cotton, heirloom quality, one of a kind pieces meant to be used and loved.

The Shibori Quilt with Diamonds uses the Japanese Shibori technique called "Itajime" which involves folding fabric and clamping it between plexiglass shapes before dyeing to get resisted patterns. I use a very scientific method of dyeing my fabric based on weight of fabric and weight of dye to get accurate, reproducible results with minimal dye waste.

Materials and Care:
I use the highest quality quilter's cotton for my quilt tops, backs, and binding. The batting is Quilter's Dream 100% cotton batting.
I use fiber reactive MX dyes. The resulting colors are wash fast and relatively light fast, but should be kept out of direct sunlight.

My quilts are all machine washable and pre-shrunk. The dyes are color fast which means they won't bleed onto anything else and they won't run in the wash. Machine was cool water, tumble dry low. They can be ironed if you like a smooth quilt, but I like them fresh out of the dryer - all fluffy and warm.

Want to hang it on the wall? Let me know and I'll sew a sleeve on the back.
