Camellia tea Quilt For Sale. A unique pictorial art quilt in my tea series of quilts. This tea quilt includes tea wrappers, tea dyed fabric and fabric tea leaves. This is an original art quilt made by Karen Platt.
This Camellia tea quilt design is the third in the series inspired by my love of tea. I have used a variety of machine stitches on this tea quilt, including freehand text.
This is a subtly coloured tea quilt. Pure cotton, cork ribbon, faux suede and various papers are the fabrics and materials used in this quilt. The quilt is further embellished with ribbons, buttons and sequins. Pure cotton thread is used. The quilt is quilted onto a polyester wadding. The bottom left corner is a piece of kunin felt (acting as the wadding for this section) and a Tyvek upper that has been painted and zapped with heat. The sequins, buttons and some of the ribbons are attached by hand.
This art quilt 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. This quilt can also be used as a quilted panel to form the centre of a larger quilt.
Measurements: This tea art quilt measures A3 size. 42 x 29.7 cm (length by width) (17 x almost 12 inches). It should fit a standard A3 frame, when cut to size (you will lose the lower inch of the quilt. It is perfect as a wall quilt to grace any home or office as wall decor. We recommend hand wash in cool water only.
