Size 51" x 52" 

The pattern used in this quilt is a traditional log cabin motif called Courthouse Steps. This quilt is made from cotton/linen blend fabric that has been dyed by hand in a natural indigo vat. Indigo is an additive dye so a darker shade of blue is achieved by dipping the fabric in the dye vat multiple times. A light shade of indigo may only have two dips in the vat but the dark shade requires eight or even ten dips.

The back of the quilt is an improvised mix of the same fabrics used on the front.

The front and back were machine pieced, meaning the patchwork is machine sewn. The quilting, meaning the stitches running throughout, is done by hand with indigo dyed cotton sashiko thread. A very special detail in the lines of hand quilting is that they alternate between light indigo and dark indigo thread. The binding is made with the darkest shade of indigo and is also sewn by hand.

This quilt is lightweight, with 100% cotton batting. This quilt was originally created for By Hand Serial's Hudson Valley lookbook.

Care Instructions

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.
