Organic Cotton Sheet Music Quilt - AMAZING GRACE
Unique to only Goodwin's Custom Crafts! A simple yet profoundly different quilt, appliqued with the melody notes to Amazing Grace, the original version by John Newton, written in 1779. Completely eco-friendly and made with 100% certified organic cotton. This means you can relax and know that only the safest, most natural products are used in the making of this quilt. Quilts aren't just for cold weather, either. They can be used all year as bedding, tummy time blankets, sleep pallets, or room decor. Measures 36" x 44". Original in photo has sold, so these will be made to order, and please note the binding is indigo blue now, not light baby blue.
ABOUT THE QUILT:
**TOP is made from 100% certified organic cotton.
**INSIDE is all natural batting that I absolutely love, 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 100% certified organic cotton in black.
**BINDING is handmade from my hand dyed organic cotton fabric in a pretty indigo blue in a double French fold style (which has lots of layers of fabric so that the binding, which is usually the first thing to wear thin on an old quilt, will not wear thin over time). It is machine stitched to the quilt, then finished by hand quilting on the back for a sturdy and traditional finish.
**Machine pieced and quilted by me.
** I wash the quilt when it is complete with phosphate free, scent-free, easy-care detergent. I recommend machine washing on the delicate cycle and dry on low settings, or better yet, line dry to get the most life out of your quilt. Iron as needed, or if you like the rumpled look of antique quilts, you do not have to iron it.
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.
