A classic Irish chain in the body of the quilt with teddy bears frolicking along the border will surely please! The main colors are pinks and browns accented with traditional white rick rack
I have quilted moon and star motifs along with hearts and feathers; my quilting always hand stenciled and machine stitched out on my Husqvarna home sewing machine.
The backing is the pinks and cream striped - shabby chic look -cotton fabric - two looks for the price of one!
The binding is a crisp white cotton always machine stitched with a double fold/double stitch for a sturdy edging which is usually the first place a quilt will start to show wear. My bindings are extremely durable.
I machine quilt every inch to two inches on my quilts which involves a tremendous amount of stops and starts and thread changes. I quilt on my home sewing machine (which can LITERALLY be a pain in the neck (and arms-and back!) with some of my larger quilts!!) using chalked stencil markings or free motion quilting which I make up along the way. This takes a super amount of time which I have to make up for in my pricing, but I think well worth the extremely personal touch.
I, and only I , have touched my quilts and worked it at every step of the process..from dreaming at 2 a.m. of your new quilt - from fabric shop -to planning -to cutting - to stitching - to finishing - to packaging - to you!!!!
I enjoyed making this quilt very much.
I used Warm and White 100% cotton batting - the fabric is 100% cotton also.
Gentle cold machine wash, no bleach, gentle warm dry or lay flat to dry.
I have not prewashed this quilt so after the softening and puckering of the first wash you may expect about 2% shrinkage. My quilts wash up beautifully and I always include a Shout Color Catcher for that first was.
Your quilt will get softer and softer with use and lots of love!
I can ship internationally but because the costs would be very high, I have only guesstimated the shipping below. I would let you know exactly what it would be before I entered into a transaction with you to be fair.
My sewing studio is away from the rest of the home - we do have a beautiful cat but he never comes near my quilts - though he would love to!! We have a complete smoke-free environment however.
If desired I can personalize a label with custom embroidery for the recipient from info supplied by the buyer which can be attached to the bottom right hand corner of the back of the quilt for an additional $20.00.
