One from the heart, and the vault.....this premier Bark Cloth quilt has ambiance....
The fabric for this piece came from an antique home on the coast of the Canadian Prince Edward Island. The panels used to make this piece were from the bay window overlooking the shore. The other items that came from this home were all artsy and old world charming.

So it was repurposed, in a grand way, making its debut as this durable art quilt. Batting is organic cotton, as per usual, with a medium meander quilting pattern, left simple to let the pattern of fabric stand out, and with a khaki colored heavy solid binding. The backing is a fine heavy sateen that was the sea washed back of the panels. We had a different back planned, but when we saw how thick and fine it was, and how it blends with piece and really makes it, we left them together.

Measures a generous 81 inch long, and 94 inches wide. This is a post wash size, there will be no shrinkage. Bark Cloth is very durable. This will last and wear for years, and as it ages, gains a patina that makes it better. Best dating of the top fabric from the daughter is the 1950's, making this a classic mid century piece.

Contemporary Primitive is a term used to describe pieces that used vintage, or antique materials as components, but made into a new piece, to modern standards. You get the best of antique look/feel, with being able to wash and use as one would normally like to. Blending the old with the new is another way to look at it. I have been called a fabric preservationist for making contemporary primitives, I just said thats fine, just don't call me late for dinner when someone else is cooking.
