Quilts make wonderful milestone gifts for those big moments that are celebrations of family, friends, or accomplishments in life. My quilts are heirloom quality and built to last a lifetime and beyond! I would suggest this quilt be used as a an artistic wall hanging, couch throw, floor quilt for a baby, toddler/crib quilt, or lap quilt for an elderly loved one.

ABOUT THE QUILT:
*Measures 36" x 56"
**This quilt is made from high quality organic materials and features hand-dyed colors in a one of a kind design and comes with sewn-in corners, so that it can be easily hung on the wall with a dowel.
I do all of the dying myself with non-toxic dyes on organic cotton. Sustainability and environmentally friendly practices are central to all of my work.
*INSIDE is batting made from 50% bamboo fibers and 50% certified organic cotton. The softest and most luxurious batting I have ever used and is densely woven so it will last for years and years and not pull apart inside the quilt. Bamboo is a quick growing, sustainable resource that is naturally antibacterial.
*BACK is hand dyed organic cotton as shown in the pictures.
*BINDING is handmade from organic cotton in a double French fold style. It is hand stitched to the quilt as shown in the photos.
*Machine pieced and quilted by me with natural cotton thread.
*EASY CARE: Machine wash and dry on delicate settings or hand wash and hang to dry to further extend the life of your quilt.

WHY ORGANIC?? Cotton is used for 50% of the world's fiber needs. Unless you buy organic cotton, it is grown using tons of pesticides and fertilizers. Conventional cotton grown with toxic chemicals accounts for 25% of the world's insecticide use and 10% of the pesticide use. At least 4 of the top 9 chemicals used in treating cotton are considered by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to be highly carcinogenic too!! Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers and is therefore better for the land, the farmers, and for your own well-being. Please research these materials if you have any further questions about their use or environmental benefits. I chose to use this in my work because working with fiber is a very dusty process and I wanted to minimize myself and my family's exposure to these harmful chemicals since we are all exposed to it on a daily basis at my in-house studio.

Made in my smoke-free, pet-free, in-home studio.
