Birds quilt

The quilt for sale is a nine square quilt made with 100 nine square blocks using squares that are 2.5 by 2.5 inches.  

 

This quilt is made of multi-coloured cottons but it just feels purple to me.  Many of the prints in this quilt have birds in them.  You may not see all the birds, but they are there.

The back is a thrifted cotton calicoes.

The batting is 100% organic cotton.

The quilt is machine pieced and quilted on a treadle sewing machine.  The binding is stitched on the treadle in place and then I finish it by hand.  The corners of the binding are mitered.

The quilt is approximately 52 inches by 52 inches.

The quilt is machine washable and dryable.  I wash tap cold and normally hang dry but that has more to do with washing preferences.  It is machine dryable. I always wash tap cold.  With care, I have had a quilt of this type last for over 30 years.

The price is $500 plus $20 shipping.
