This art quilt is made from 91 different fabrics pre 1995. It is only 15 1/2 inches wide x 24 1/4 inches long. Each piece is 1" wide by 2 1/2" long and not 2 pieces of fabric are the same. The fabrics chosen give you the feeling of fall maple leaves and all the brilliant colors of autumn.
The piece is hand quilted around each individual piece and in the grey leaf border, a garland of leaves has been hand quilted.
The backing is traditional unbleached muslin. It is signed and dated by the artist.
A hanging sleeve is on the back for display. This is machine washable and dryable. 100% cotton fabrics were used. Full care instructions are included. Crafted in a smoke-free and animal-free environment.
