Kingfisher Art Quilt For Sale. One off, unique pictorial quilt, featuring a kingfisher. This is an original small art quilt, made by Karen Platt. A bird pictorial art quilt. No two designs are the same. This quilt is also part of the River Don Series of Karen Platt quilts.
This Kingfisher Art Quilt has a pieced and appliqued kingfisher in different fabrics. I started with a Kingfisher painting I made some years ago and cut my fabric to make the bird. The appliqued bird is on a background of different strips of fabrics. The background is machine quilted using different stitches for effect.
The base colour of the Kingfisher art quilt is blue with highlights of green and orange. The bird is also blue with highlights of orange. The bird’s legs are stitched. All the fabrics are pure cotton (except for the ribbon) and one is hand dyed. The thread used is pure cotton.
The 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.
