This quilt plays with the concept of outward motion, like a rock hitting water and the ripples moving and flowing away from the center.
Throw sized 55” x 55”
The Tidal Quilt is made with lightweight cotton that has been hand dyed in studio using indigo and walnut. There are 3 different shades of indigo used as well as walnut overdyed in indigo to create a shibori pattern. The shade of indigo depends on the number of dips in the dye vat the fabric receives. To achieve the light shades takes 2-3 dips but to reach the darker indigo requires 8 or more dips.
The front and back were machine pieced, meaning the patchwork is machine sewn. The pattern on the front is made up of 400 squares. The quilting, meaning the stitches running throughout, is done by hand with cream colored cotton sashiko thread. Hand quilting is a very laborious and time consuming process but the impact of the hand stitches cannot be mimicked with a machine. The binding is a mix of fabrics and is sewn by hand.
This lightweight quilt has 100% cotton batting. It is a functional piece but would be best suited for decorative use - a wall hanging, bed cover or an accent throw for furniture.

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.
