Add To Cart

The front of this quilt is made of 12 panels of linen, each hand-dyed with natural indigo using shibori clamp-resist techniques.   These panels were then pieced together, and the seams become lost in the lines of quilting, resulting in what almost appears to be a whole-cloth quilt.   The backing fabric is the softest linen I have found to date.   The binding is also hand-dyed linen, and is hand sewn to the back, giving it a very finished look.   

Measures approximately 6 feet wide by 8 feet long, big enough to cover the top of a queen size bed, or to hand off the sides of a full/double size bed, and more than enough to cover a twin bed.   

The pairing of linen fabric and wool batting makes for a quilt that is warm in the winter, but cool to the touch in the summer.  

This quilt can be machine washed on gentle using a mild, non-alkaline soap, and machine dried on low or medium to damp dry.  The wool and linen will last longer if not fully dried in the dryer, but rather letting it air dry on a line or simply thrown over a couch or chair.   

This quilt, with its bold patterns from afar and small variations in the stitching and dying visible up close, can also be displayed on a wall as an object of art.   A hanging sleeve will be sewn on the back at no extra charge at the request of the client.    

One of a kind, made by Peter Horjus at the Crosby Schoolhouse.
