The Cardinal Quilt is a one-of-a-kind throw sized piece, approx 58 in x 59 in (5ft x 5ft). The four sawtooth stars are made with pieces of fabric left over from other projects. Repurposing remnant pieces is one way the studio stays as close to zero waste as possible.
The stars of the quilt have reds and pinks from fabric dyed with natural materials like madder root, quebracho and cochineal. There are so many subtle shifts in color - it really shows the array of shades you can achieve with natural dyes. The grey behind the stars is a soft medium weight linen dyed with walnut and the earthy pinks outlining the star blocks is a quebracho dyed medium weight linen.
The back of the quilt is a mixed patchwork of grey and pink linens from fabric dyed with walnut, iron salts and quebracho.

It's best to display quilts away from direct sunlight. Some natural dyes are sensitive to sunlight which can cause fading.
Vacuuming the quilt with a stocking over the vacuum hose is an easy way to remove light dust.
For a deeper clean, professional cleaning is recommended.
For most quilts it is possible to clean by soaking in a tub and handwashing with care using a gentle detergent. Rinse and remove the excess water. Lay flat to dry out of direct sunlight. Hanging the quilt to dry will put strain on the stitches.
Please do not machine wash.
