Fine Feathered Friend Quilt For Sale. A unique pictorial art quilt, featuring a big bird from one of my own drawings. This is an original digital art quilt made by Karen Platt.
This fine feathered friend quilt design started with one of my drawings many years ago. I thought the drawing would make a good quilt, so I took a photo of my bird drawing and played with it digitally. The print out was made last year and I have now quilted for sale. The Bird is large and takes up most of the quilt. His claws rest on a branch of wood and there is a window behind him. The whole bird is outlined in machine stitch and the quilting is machine too to outline the feathers. I have used a variety of machine stitches in this bird art quilt.
This is a very bold, colourful art quilt with red, blue, purple, green and orange. The colours blend into one another. I have used matching threads for the machine quilting. The bird blends into the colours but stands out owing to the machine stitch.
The fabric used is pure cotton. 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 A3 size. 42 x 29.7 cm (length by width) (17 x almost 12 inches). It should fit a standard A3 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.
