Organic Cotton Sheet Music Quilt - TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR
Unique to only Goodwin's Custom Crafts! A simple yet profoundly different quilt, appliqued with the notes to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Completely eco-friendly with pure and natural materials. 100% certified organic cottons mean 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".
ABOUT THE QUILT:
*TOP is made from 100% certified organic cotton. Quilt comes with the name of the song in free handed quilted cursive letters at the top of the quilt. This isn't in the picture, but that is how it is made.
*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 the same organic black fabric 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.
*APPLIQUES are sewn on with slightly raw edges to the fabric.
*Machine pieced and quilted by me.
CUSTOMIZATION...The super cool thing about this quilt, is that is can be made to order with any classical or gospel music. I think my next piece will be Amazing Grace. Made to order requests will be priced according to the number of measures and notes and the overall degree of complication preferred, and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
** 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.
