The fabric used to make the patterned side of this quilt is a mix of secondhand fabrics, four pairs of old broken pants and an old table cloth. The batting for the quilt is made from an old fleece blanket and the backing is a subtly patterned vintage bedsheet. The sewing thread used to make the line pattern is sourced secondhand as well from the local recycling center.
The front panel of the quilt is pieced together from the different fabrics that are cut to shape so that a 3D cube pattern forms. There are over 200 individual pieces in this quilt, sewn together to form a large patchwork. After piecing together, the patchwork is layerd with batting (in this case the fleece blanket) and a backing piece and then quilted together. The sewn lines give a nice subtle variation to the surface of the quilt and at the same time, make it cushy and sturdy. The pattern consists of simple vertical lines, that accentuate the pattern of the cubes themselves.
This quilt is a bright statement piece, perfect to cover your bed or sofa during the day. It is a heavy but soft blanket that can be used on cold summer nights, sitting out on the balcony or on freezing winter days, as an extra layer to your regular bedding. Cats and dogs will love this one too and as it is machine washable (we would recommend a 30°C gentle programme) you can allow them to share this heirloom piece with you.
