Spring, the season of renewal, sometimes is reason enough to indulge yourself with... what else... Lilacs! 

This beautiful floral throw quilt and sofa blanket features this gorgeous spring bloom.

Shades of purple, from rich & dark to light mauve, are complimented by spring greens and soft creamy white... cotton prints are featuring lilac flower clusters and petals, leaves, vintage buttons and novelties.

Pretty and feminine, a lovely gift for Mom, a bridal shower gift for the home, birthday, etc.

Size is 57 x 48 inches (145 x 122 cm)

Machine quilted by free motion (hand guided) with a floral vine, curls & leaves, for pretty, coordinating detail. Backing is cotton fabric in mottled pastels... mauve, pink, blue, green, gray. I have made the binding of the leftover scraps from the quilt top.

Shipped with tracking and insurance. 

 

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

I package all my items responsibly, first with a care for your purchase and then with a desire to reuse and recycle any shipping material I have around. I also refund shipping overages.
