Quilts for Sale

Items for Sale: Lap Quilts and smaller

Every quilt on this page is hand sewn and individually designed. The quilts are 100% cotton, with cotton batting or polyester batting, if I wanted more lift. The coverlets (technically 2 thicknesses of fabric) are cotton on top, with hand applique, and a warm cosy fleece on the back for less weight and longer wear. Each description includes components used and details of construction. Some quilts are small, perhaps 12 inches by 14. Some quilts are perfect for 18" dolls. Others are just right for a baby or someone larger to cuddle up or throw over shoulders or legs for casual warmth and comfort.

 

This Red work quilt is made of 100% cotton, with hand embroidered quilting patterns done in red cotton thread. The accent quilting is sewn in white, with a white piping border. This quilt would be ideal for a vibrant lap quilt or as a Christmas background.

The four inch squares are decorated with a red outline of several popular quilting patterns, done on soft white cotton. The edging is a candy stripe of red and white. The quilt is small enough for a baby or personal lap quilt, at 28 x 41 inches. It would also look wonderful on a wall, or as part of a collage of antique pieces.

The entire quilt measures 28" x 41", with a light poly loft.

The first quilt I finished is made in the design sometimes called "Churn Dash". It is a series of triangles in contrasting and complimenting color. The design is called many things, depending on the arrangement of color.

Here is a sample of a display for this hand sewn 100% cotton quilt, measuring 18 x 25 inches. If you would like to see your favorite little girl snuggling with her favorite doll and this quilt, please contact me.

One way to display the quilt is this suggestion.

I made this coverlet to be light and warm, and I succeeded wonderfully. The cotton top is quilted directly to the fleece back, making the coverlet very warm, and very light weight. This is just the thing for summer nights, when the breeze kicks up, or the sun goes down. It is not heavy, and the bright summery colors cheer any location.

The full size of the coverlet is 33" x 41"

This quilt idea came from a quilting book or magazine I read years ago. The border is wide, and appliqued with simple ivy leaves, as the book suggests. But the center of muslin lattice work was my own idea. I liked the central fabric so much I didn't want to cut it up, so I showcased it to look like a window into a garden.

The quilt is all cotton, except for the hand sewn wool crewel stems wandering around the edge. It is  lap sized or it would fit wonderfully into a baby carry case or set off the back of a rocker, at 33.5" x 38".

I also love doing small items by hand. This is one of which I am very proud. Each piece is about an inch in size, and all is hand sewn. The small pieces are set together to make a subtle pattern of color and look like spring hills covered in budding flowers.

The quilt measures only 16" x 14".

This quilt is actually another adaptation from a book. I loved the small diamonds, and the applique flowers, but the colors in the book were pale, and I wanted some darker tones. I also had some wonderful yellow/orange fabric I wanted to use. This is the result

This was a wonderful 'take along' project after I sewed the diamond base squares. The most fun was deciding where each flower went, and then sewing on the plastic yellow buttons.

This all cotton lapquilt measures 32" x 32" square.
