The quilt that started my interest in Indigo Dying! It was a pretty quilt top, but it fell a little flat, so, what to do? Well, Dye It!
I believe this is a variation on the Irish Chain Quilt, and the wee little blocks are only 1/2 inch squares. The work that went into it, and it was all hand sewn! I did have to make a few repairs by appliqueing over the small squares (see the dragonfly square!). When I first started on the quilt I was hand quilting. There are 17 rows of straight hand quilting running the longest length of the quilt. After discovering that it was just too wonky and wasn't going to lie flat, I decided to micro quilt it with the Bernina. It was the best decision! It's got a great texture and the denim-look is really cool with this pattern. You can totally see the quilt underneath, but it's a beautiful overall indigo. The photos do not do it justice!
I've paired it with a beautiful indigo batik fabric for the backing (see in the last photo). It's very textural and has a great feel. It is safe to machine wash and dry (with care following instructions... basically in cold water with no harsh detergents or bleach). I've already washed and dried this quilt.
It measures approximately 63x78 inches. This quilt is sold As Is Vintage. No stains can be seen as it has been dyed.

STORY OF VINTAGE RESCUE QUILTS
Following my love of Vintage Quilts and Quilt History, I find and source unfinished vintage quilt tops from various sources. I then make any repairs needed to the quilt top, including mending loose seams, replacing disintegrated fabrics, and attending to stains that may be treated. I then pair the quilt with a modern fabric backing and batting and quilt it using my longarm quilting machine. I use no computers on my longarm and everything is done manually. In the end, these unfinished quilts from long ago are transformed into quilts that are totally amazing, stunning, and well, beautiful! Sometimes I'm so struck by a quilt's transformation! It is an honor to bring these beauties into the future and finally give them the ability to be used and loved!
❀ ❀ wash cold, gentle cycle, mild soap and dry in a normal drier on low to medium or lay flat or hang to dry. Do not hang in direct sunlight to dry.
