I love this quilt.   The top is made from 42 panels all with the same clamp resist pattern.   The dying technique yields a lighter and darker triangle, which was used to create the pattern in the quilt.  It's reminiscent of a pieced quilt of triangles.   The binding matches the backing, and because I loved this quilt so much, I hand-stiched the binding to the back.   

This quilt 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.
