Fantastic Bird Quilt For Sale. A unique pictorial art quilt, featuring a fantastic bird, an imaginary bird from one of my own drawings. This is an original fabric-pieced art quilt made by Karen Platt.
This fantastic bird quilt design started with one of my drawings. I wanted a unique bird. He is a sort of cross between a cockerel and partridge I think! Anyway he is kind of funky and original.
I machine stitched my hand dyed fabrics together for a background. The bird is created as a fabric collage. He is colourful and appliqued to the background.
This is a very bold, colourful art quilt with pink, blue, purple and orange. The colours are vibrant and I call this quilt ‘Strut Your Stuff’. I have used matching threads for the machine quilting.
The fabric used is pure cotton and pure silk. Most of the thread used is pure cotton, some is polyester, one is silk. The quilt is quilted onto a 80% cotton and 20% polyester 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. This quilt can also be used as a quilted panel to form the centre of a larger quilt.
Measurements: This bird art quilt measures A4 size. 21 x 29.7 cm (length by width) (approx 8 x almost 12 inches). It 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. It would make a superb gift for any bird lover.
