Courthouse Steps Quilt 1

Courthouse Steps Quilt 1


This quilt is a variation of the traditional Courthouse Steps pattern. The quilt is made with heavyweight 100% organic cotton, handwoven in a carbon neutral mill that is run on solar power. The organic cotton has been hand dyed in studio with cutch (to produce the dark clay and pink shades), walnut ( greys and tans) and osage orange + indigo (light teal).

The quilt is approx 61” x 68” in size. 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 cutch dyed 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 weighty 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. 

The quilt can be cared for by hand washing in a tub with a gentle detergent and drying flat. It can also be professionally cleaned. It should be kept out of direct sunlight.
