Designer Kaleidoscope Lap Quilt For Sale Original Karen Platt Design.
This original designer kaleidoscope quilt is cut, pieced and assembled by hand and machine stitched by me. It is an original one-off design, there is no other quilt exactly the same, it is unique. Hang it on your wall as a stunning decoration. It features North American Indian motifs that have been made into hexagons and used to create a visual delight.
The front of the quilt features the hexagons and is bound in turquoise and hand stitched in place to the back. On the back, this quilt uses similar colours to the front, in large blocks of colour making it a double-sided quilt. (There is an image below of the back being sewn together)
The colours used are black, navy, turquoise, blues and white. All fabrics are 100% cotton in this quilt. The wadding (batting) is 80/20 cotton/polyester. The thread is 100% cotton.
The quilting design is a straight stitch design that I designed to complement the individual hexagon elements of the quilt itself.
The quilt was designed, cut, pieced, stitched, quilted and finished entirely by Karen Platt. It features a hand sewn original label.
Measurements: 107 x 98 cm (42 x 38 inches) approx. Ideal as a wall hanging, draping over a chair or lap quilt, using the back or front.
The fabric and wadding have not been pre-washed. I recommend hand washing at 30°C or cold wash only. Use Dreft or Woolite and Colour catchers. Line dry or preferably dry flat if at all possible. Do not rub or agitate too much. Lift the quilt carefully, distributing the weight evenly to avoid distortion.
