This scrappy patchwork quilt is an extra large queen size. Beautifully rustic colors bring to mind a fall woodland with some of the cotton prints featuring fall leaves. Predominantly brown and beige tones with significant forest green, country red, burnt orange and antique gold. Together they create a warm, inviting look. 

Size is about 100 x 92 inches with a drop of about 15 inches down the sides of the bed. This is a generously sized queen quilt.

Scrap quilts are always one of a kind. I always think that part of their unique appeal comes from the reminder of old fashioned, traditional practicality of our ancestors who were expert in creating beauty despite the necessity for thriftiness. 

I have washed this quilt in a front load washer using regular settings and regular laundry soap, drying on warm heat. This has relaxed the fabrics and created the soft crinkly look that we associate with old fashioned quilts. This is also the preshrink so that it will not shrink anymore. If your washer has an agitator, I recommend using a delicate cycle just to be safe. Otherwise it is easy care. I routinely wash my own quilts in regular wash loads with no extra fussing.

The majority of the fabrics are cotton with a few poly cotton blends thrown in. Quilting is done by freemotion (hand guided machine stitching, not computer) in an all over echoed leaf design. Binding is attached by machine with neat mitered corners. This makes a nice durable finish. 

Shipped with insurance and tracking. 

Features

I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition to good quality materials, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be…. outside under the tree, in your car, on a picnic, on the hammock, in the family room, etc. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.

Care

I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Packaging & Shipping
