Bird Art Quilt For Sale. One off, unique pictorial quilt, featuring a bird. This is an original small art quilt, made by Karen Platt. A bird pictorial art quilt. No two designs are the same.
This design started with a wonderful bird batik fabric that I could not resist. This Bird Art Quilt features a fabric bird outlined in machine stitch. The outlined bird is on a patchwork of fabrics that have been machine stitched for effect.
The main colour of the bird art quilt is orange, highlighted by darker and lighter fabrics including black, brown, beige and ecru. The bird stands out against these neutral colours, aided by the machine stitch. The fabrics used include pure cotton, silk and felted wool. Two of the fabrics are batiks. The lines on the black are hand couched and are pure silk. The thread used is pure cotton.
Bird art quilt is quilted onto a cotton wadding. It is ready to mount and frame. Therefore it does not have a backing fabric and it does not have binding. Alternatively, if you did not wish to frame it, you could back and bind it.
Measurements: This small art quilt measures 30 x 24 cm (length by width) (12 x almost 10 inches). It can be cut to size and should fit a standard A4 frame. It is perfect as a wall quilt to grace any home or office as wall decor. We recommend hand wash in cool water only.
