Original Karen Platt Autumn Lap Quilt For Sale. My original sample quilt made from my own original design is available for sale.
This original designer 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.
The front of the quilt features
* machine stitched log cabin, hand cut and re-assembled
* hand stitched hexagons
* machine stitched borders
* hand cut and machine applique acorns
* hand coloured acorns, free-motion stitched
* stitch in the ditch quilting
The back of the quilt includes one outlined acorn in free-motion stitch and three panels of fabric.
The colours used are warm, autumnal colours of deep browns to cream. All fabrics are 100% cotton in this quilt. The wadding (batting) is 80/20 cotton/polyester. The thread is 100% cotton.
The quilt was designed, cut, pieced, stitched, quilted and finished entirely by Karen Platt. It features a hand sewn original label.
Measurements: 150 x 150 cm (50 inches square) 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.
Please note that this is a sample quilt and is not perfect and is bought as seen. This is reflected in the sale price.
If you prefer, there is a tutorial quilt pattern in 3 sizes, click ecourses link of the website, if you wish to learn how I made this quilt and to make your own. The quilt was designed to teach quilting skills. There is no kit for this design.
