emmylou - improv mini quilt
This mini quilt/wall hanging is a one of a kind, improv-pieced work of art for your living space. It's constructed of high quality and vibrantly-hued Kona quilter's cotton as well as fabric with a light grey/white grid pattern. It's backed with natural/undyed cotton fabric, and has natural cotton batting sandwiched between. The quilting/top-stitching provides texture and strength to this heirloom piece. I use organic white cotton thread in all of my pieces, as well. It's finished with matching/complimentary cotton fabric binding.
This quilt is designed to be hung on the wall as it includes two rod pockets and a dowel (which can easily be rested on a nail or even a removable adhesive wall hook of your choosing). That said, if you'd prefer a little placemat for a cute table in your home, go for it!
This mini quilt is 10.5" wide and 12.5" tall and will lay flat against your wall or any surface upon which it lays. It has not been prewashed, but can easily be washed as needed on cold/warm with gentle detergent and no bleach; I also recommend tossing in a couple Shout Color Catchers to ensure the fabrics don't bleed. Iron with a hot, steamy iron to restore the shape and flatness.
The colors for this quilt were inspired by this illustration by Amber Vittoria.
