This improvised "Crossroads" car and carriage quilt was inspired by my observations of the horse and buggy way of travel, which is a common sight in my neck of the woods. On chilly days I see the occupants smartly covered in a warm blanket draped across their laps, and it reminded me of how practical and cozy it is to keep a small and easily portable quilt in one's vehicle...

Perfect for keeping your little one snugly. Super for draping over your own lap during outdoor events such as auctions and sports games. Just right for laying on the ground for the kids to play on or for a lovely little picnic when the mood strikes!


This 100% cotton quilt has a good solid weight to it. Featuring a main background of sturdy unbleached woven cotton fabric along with 5 other beautiful woven fabrics and one sweet flowered print, this quilted throw has been made with use in mind. Throughly machine quilted, to help insure a long and beautiful life. (The quilting on a quilt isn't just decorative... it provides a function. If a quilt isn't quilted enough, the batting inside can begin to separate, and bunch up, especially after washing... who wants that?) And best yet, it's completely machine washable and machine dryable. In fact as a final finishing in its construction, I have already washed and dried this quilt, (using dye-free, fragrant-free, environmentally friendly detergent and softener) to help bring out it's cuddly nature, and fabulous texture!

(Please Note: Small slubs, along with flecks and lines of color found in the unbleached cotton fabric used on the front and back of this quilt are not flaws, but are instead an inherent part of the woven cloth, adding to it's rural esthetic and appeal.)


Delivery Confirmation and postal insurance is included and provided for all Domestic purchases.


Note: While I try my very best to accurately represent the colors in my photographs, please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor, as well as sometimes appearing a bit brighter, and sometimes appearing a bit more washed out then they actually are.
