Hand-Dyed Organic Cotton Quilt - LITTLE WINDOW
Very cool bit of info about this quilt? It was featured in the 2019 Spring Quarterly Art Quilting Studio Magazine issue! It hit news stands in March and will be available until summer.
Organic quilt, made from the highest quality, organic materials. Featuring hand-dyed colors in a one of a kind design. Quilts are an investment which will last for years and give many a heartfelt snuggle. I would suggest this quilt be used as a wall hanging, but it could also be used a throw quilt or small bed quilt. It is heirloom quality and will last for years and years.
ABOUT THE QUILT:
Measures 44" x 58"
*TOP is an original design made by yours truly. It is a one of a kind quilt that will never be replicated exactly in this way.
*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 hand-dyed organic cotton in an indigo shade. Some have been dyed by us in small batches, others are from my own fabric design collections. We do all of the hand dying ourself with non toxic fabric dyes on organic cotton.
*BINDING is scrappy and pieced together from coordinating scraps. It is handmade in a double French fold style with organic cotton. It is hand-sewn onto the back of the quilt for a professional, clean finish.
*Machine pieced and quilted by me with colorful cotton thread.
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.
