A little patchwork quilt

I pulled a stack of my naturally hand-dyed fabrics and made a little patchwork quilt. I used organic cotton, some white-on-white prints, essex cotton/linen, and natural linen. The dyes are indigo, cochineal, annatto, and walnut. The backing is a length of dip-dyed organic cotton.

I did a dense stipple with Aurifil 50-wt in white. For the binding, I used a Julianna Horner fabric from Joanns plus a little hand-dyed strip and some Joel Dewberry. I machine stitched the binding by SITD from the front, which is my new preferred method.

This little quilt measures 34" x 38" post-washing. It's listed in the shop.
