Hand-Dyed Organic Cotton Quilt - YELLOW #2 PENCIL
Measures 30" x 68" - One of a kind, unique pencil quilt! Fun bed runner, tummy time quilt, room decor, or wall hanging. AND its 100% organic. My daughter came up with the idea for this quilt and I just made it happen! You can see her holding it in the picture!
*TOP is 100% GOTS certified organic cottons, pieced together in an original, one of a kind design, resembling a No.2 pencil. The colors are all hand dyed organic muslins (except for the black, which is still organic, but not hand dyed.) We do all of the fabric dying ourselves in small batches with non-toxic dye. Variations in color will occur, are natural, and totally awesome, if you ask me!
*INSIDE is all natural batting that is made from 50% bamboo fibers and 50% certified organic cotton. Bamboo is a quick growing, sustainable resource that is naturally antibacterial.
*BACK is a GOTS organic red gingham.
*QUILTED throughout with LOTS of free motions stitches in black cotton thread, to enhance the pencil design.
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.
Made in my smoke-free, pet-free, in-home studio.
