Containing nearly 1000 small pieces of dominantly green fabrics, each individually handled by the artist, this twin sized art quilt can be hung from a rod or spread on a bed. Its non-replicable original design was a labor of love. The quilt measures 70" x 92" and has 6 borders. As a wall hanging it is breathtaking. Imagine it hanging on the wall of a large stairwell landing, or in a home with cathedral ceilings, or spread as art on a bed.

I choose fabrics from designers like Hoffman, Kaffe Fassett, Timeless Treasures, SSI, Heide Stoll-Weber, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, and incorporate top quality varietals: hand painted fabrics, hand dyes, screen prints, batiks, calicoes, tie dyes, solids—mostly 100% cotton—plus brocades, sateens and sparklers.

I individually select and incorporate into each quilt, up to 100+ different fabrics collected from the U.S.A., the Caribbean, Indonesia, and Africa—particularly Ghana.

From yardage, I hand cut the fabrics randomly into large and small pieces, and sew them together by machine as inspired, not by pattern, and then border them with complementary fabrics.

I hand quilt (7-10 spi) the quilt face to the batting and the back fabric selected specifically for each quilt.

Each quilt is individually fashioned, no two exactly alike even within the same color pallette.

Each is a one-of-a-kind creation that vary by a) the choices of textures and patterns in fabrics employed, b) the placement of the fabrics in juxtaposition, c) the color combinations and shadings, and d) the style and colors of the border fabrics.

Each quilt has my embroidered signature, Carolyn Beard Whitlow, and the completion date.

This quilt has a dowel sleeve for hanging.
