Summer Inspirations Original Karen Platt Bells of St Clements Lap Quilt For Sale. My original sample made from my own original design is available for sale.
This original designer quilt is cut, pieced and assembled by hand, then machine stitched entirely by me. It is an original one-off design, there is no other exactly the same, it is unique.
The front features
* decorative line machine stitching
* square blocks
* machine stitched and hand stitched binding
* silk and cotton
* a different pattern on the back
* stitch in the ditch quilting
* half square triangles
The back is a different pattern using the same fabrics, offering a two-sided quilt.
The colours used are warm, bright summer colours that reflect the sunshine and happiness. All fabrics are 100% cotton in this quilt plus one square of pure silk. The wadding (batting) is 80/20 cotton/polyester. The thread is 100% polyester.
The quilt was designed, cut, pieced, stitched, quilted and finished entirely by Karen Platt. It features a hand sewn original label.
Measurements: 134 x 134 cm (53 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.
