1. Anthropologie Alvorada Quilt
Queen, 96″ x 92″
King, 102″ x 96″
From the quilter: “Tropical color and lightweight warmth in a pastiche of handprinted florals, front and back. Kantha-stitched throughout, this artisan-made quilt brightens any bedroom and makes the perfect summer blanket. Cotton.”
Twin: 68″ x 90″
Double/Queen: 86″ x 90″
King: 101″ x 90″
Standard: 20″ x 26″
From the quilter: “Light and easy in pure cotton voile, our poufy quilt features romantic gathers on the front for an airy and dreamy effect. Hand-stitched tacking is tied on the back for homespun charm. The sham and pillow cover have a gathered front and fabric-covered buttons in back.”
41.5″ x 47″, Cotton fabric with White & Natural batting.
From the quilter: “Summertime colors of yellow and green make up the majority of this quilt. Rows of multicolored & glittered butterflies on blue, purple, pink, and green backgrounds round out this stunning summertime creation! My youngest daughter inspired this quilt with her love of citrus colors & flavors. (That comes in handy when I don’t want all my orange, green, & yellow Skittles!) The backing is white on white with the binding folded over to the front and machine stitched in place. This quilt has been extensively quilted “in the ditch” with chain link quilting in the borders and sashing strips. I used all cotton fabrics, cotton thread and a batting that is mostly cotton with a small amount of polyester in it for wear and durability. With each washing this quilt will become softer and more cuddly.”
50 x 40 inches wide (127 cm x 101.6 cm)
From the quilter: “This is a beautiful new blue and white Single Irish Chain, nine (9) patch quilt top that I made. You can do bluework, redwork or other embroidery in the solid white squares. Make this a family heirloom. Use it throughout the year. Great for a wall, lap, crib quilt. This is the top only. You add batting, backing and your favorite quilting designs.”
