SAILING HAWKS QUILT

0.00

Made from re-purposed vintage woolen wear including men's blazers and trousers, women's skirts, and yardage of vintage wool fabrics that I've been collecting over the years. The back is also constructed of vintage fabrics. The rows of hand quilting were done with red Japanese sashiko thread. 

This is a traditional quilt block called Hourglass. As this quilt was coming together I found it reminiscent of the red tailed hawks sailing high on the wind currents. A common sight here in the high desert. Sailing Hawks is also the name of one of our favorite hiking spots. 

Materials used:

Vintage wool wear, vintage cotton print (on back see close up photo), vintage Bulgarian linen (red piece on back, see photos) linen binding, wool batting, red cotton sashiko thread.

Size: 58 x 59 inches (throw size, or can be used as a decorative layer on any size bed, or as a wall hanging)

 

Machine pieced, hand quilted with red Japanese sashiko thread, and the binding was sewn by hand.
