Quilts For Sale Original Indian Wedding Quilted Wall Hangings. These are also suitable for lap quilts if used on the side. They can be sold as a pair as priced or sold singly, see below. Designer Kaleidoscope Original Karen Platt Quilt Designs.
These original designer kaleidoscope or One Block Wonder (OBW) quilts are designed to be hung as a pair. They are cut, pieced and assembled by hand and machine stitched by me. A one-off design that is unrepeatable, there is no other quilt exactly the same, it is unique. Hang it on your wall as a stunning decoration. They both feature North American Indian central panels with eagle motifs in the hexagon pattern to create a visual delight.
The front of each quilt features hexagons and is bound in black and hand stitched in place to the back. On the back, these quilts use three fabrics. Please see the images. From afar the hexagons appear like geometrics, but up close you can see the eagles, wings, and so on of the fabric used. Each back has the original fabric as one of the three used.
The predominant colour used is blue, but the quilts contain many colours including a warm ochre, pinkish red, dark browns. All fabrics are 100% cotton in this quilt. The wadding (batting) is pure wool. 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: 133 x 98 cm (52 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 by carefully folding in half over the line or preferably dry flat if at all possible. We recommend the latter. Do not rub or agitate too much. Lift the quilt carefully, distributing the weight evenly to avoid distortion.
