inspiration + d e s i g n :

{ photographed in saguaro national park, tucson, AZ }

the desert summer quilt was inspired by just that: the heat and colors of summer in the sonoran desert. photographed in saguaro national park at the tail end of monsoon season, the hand dyed green fabrics that were meant to be a subtle addition really shine. the warm tan and peach tones in the quilt are a mix of hand dyed and solid fabrics.

note: due to the nature of recycled fabrics being pre-used, and also the nature of hand dyed fabrics - any markings, discoloration, or any other "spots" on these fabrics are to be considered part of the fabric itself. each has been washed before being put into the creations.

the hand dyeing process is lengthy, but humbling (as i love being able to create projects with fabrics dyed with my own hands!). it includes choosing the dye colors, prepping the fabric in soda ash, applying the dye, and finally rinsing, and washing/drying/ironing them before use. this process takes up to 48 hours per piece of fabric. i dye in small batches only, in order to ensure that each fabric created is one of a kind and completely unique. even if i were to use the same dye color, the textures and tones created in each piece can never be 100% recreated.

all of my items are handmade by me, with love, as one-of-a-kind pieces of usable and functional art.

this quilt measures 60x60". it has been machine quilted with a pale peach colored thread using 80/20 cotton/poly batting. it is backed with the softest vintage sheet purchased at a thrift shop in joshua tree, and finished with an apriltwoeightyquilts tag. handmade binding is machine sewn using a coordinating marigold yellow fabric.

this quilt is machine washable on cold and may be tumble dried on low. please see the care page on my site at www.apriltwoeightyquilts.com for more info.
