Indigo Everlasting Quilt

Indigo Everlasting Quilt


The Indigo Everlasting Quilt is a variation on the Tree Everlasting quilt pattern which was created around 1850. This quilt is made with lightweight cotton that has been hand dyed in studio using indigo and walnut. There are 4 different shades of indigo used - 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 quilt is 60” x 60” (throw sized, 5’ x 5’). 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 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 naturally dyed and khaki cotton 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. 

This quilt should be professionally cleaned and must be kept out of direct sunlight to avoid fading and discoloration.
