This is a beautiful art quilt that looks wonderful hanging in my kitchen. The quilt looked even nicer in person when it arrived. It serves as a bright pop of color on a formerly bare wall. Nice safe packaging and quick shipping. Thank you, Jane!

QUILT INFO AND CARE:
Specializing in handmade, machine-stitched art quilts. These quilts make excellent fabric art wall hangings, using the hanging sleeve on the back. Each quilt is a unique, colorful design by the artist, Jane Hicks, an experienced quilter.

I use washable all-cotton fabric. The batting is either 100% cotton or 80% cotton, 20% polyester. The binding is French double fold style. These works of art are new. I design and make these in my home, a smoke- and pet-free environment.

Quilts should not be dry cleaned; the chemicals will harm the colors. I do not pre-wash the batting, so it will shrink somewhat when the quilt is washed, giving it an "antique quilt" look. The quilt will get softer the more it is washed. Batik colors do not 'run'. Wash gently in cold water. Either line-dry or tumble-dry to soften it up.

When storing, always either roll the quilt on a tube, or fold on the bias. Either method will prevent a crease from forming which is hard to get out.

It brought so much vibrance, intensity and life into the room! And the size is perfect -- if it were any bigger, it would be overwhelming! We love everything about it -- the composition, color combination, fabric combination,.....etc, etc!!! We are so honored to have your work in our home!!!! Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOO much!" - Masha I. (VT)

"I recieved the quilt [Magic Boxes] today! It is so beautiful, it just gives you the best feeling when you see it!

"I received the quilt [Bubbles in a Rainbow] yesterday and it is fantastic!! I absolutely LOVE it! I commend you on your artistry. The quilt is so unlike any quilt I have ever seen and it looks STUNNING on my wall. To me it is a piece of art just like my other artwork except it happens to be made of fabric. It is now displayed in a very prominent place in my home. I can't wait to see other people's reaction to it. Your quilts are not just for nurseries! And what a nice touch the fabric case is that it came in - very classy. THANK YOU! I am very happy with my purchase and will treasure this for a long, long time." - Allan M (CA)

"...I wanted to let you know how THRILLED I am with your work. The photos of the quilt [Square Dancing] just didn't do the quilt justice in my opinion.

THANK YOU." - Stephanie T. (OH)

FAQs:
Q: Your quilting designs are beautiful. May I ask what type of quilting machine/design templates you use?

A: I do not use a quilting machine or design template at all. I create all my own quilting designs, piecing and stitching. The machine I use for sewing & quilting is my home sewing machine, a Bernina 1008. Playing with color in adapting traditional designs has been great fun. I employ a free-motion quilting technique to enhance the design. Thank you for your compliment.

Q:How long does it take you to design and construct a quilt?

A:Since I'm 'retired', my quilting can be an all-day activity. Usually, I'm thinking about a design for two or three weeks before I start working in fabric. This way I can plan the design and any sewing problems that might arise. Then there will be one or two days when I'm cutting, pinning it on my flannel board, and starting to sew. Sewing will take one day once I get started. Needing one more day to quilt and finish off, it's about a week of sewing after a few weeks of thinking.

Q:What is the process by which you pick the patterns and colors for a quilt design?

A:This is a tricky question. Usually I see a picture, a scene, or have a thought, that starts a design growing. As I develop a design, I would say its more of a feeling I want to express in a quilt. The size of the quilt, the strength of the colors, their relation to each other, and the overall composition, all work to express this feeling. Sometimes a quilt will pull itself in a certain direction and I really just follow. Some quilts design themselves!

Q:Where do you get the batik fabrics?

A:There is a store the Southern Virginia, Batiks Etcetera, that has rooms of batiks. It's Nirvana to me. Batiks are so full of color and patterns, I can just get lost in them. I truly want to get inside beautiful pieces of color.
