By Anne Morgan
Inspired by watching the morning’s sunrise, Anne wanted to create a piece that had all the colours of autumn and celebrated the joy of the morning. Its simplicity and use of dip-dye and quilting stitches makes it a desirable piece.
Materials organic cotton poplin. Dip-dyed using water-based Procion Inks.
Batting: wool repurposed blanket.
Edging: organic cotton poplin
Yarns for quilting: deep ink blue/black is wool/silk yarns and light ecru is organic cotton.
Hand-stitched edging: organic cotton thread.

Technique The colour transition from deep ocean blue to turquoise is achieved using a dip-dye technique and water-based Procion inks. The sandwiched quilt layers of top bottom and batting inside are stitched together using a wool/ silk midnight blue and black thread using seed stitches and then a running stitch for the lighter area. The edging is sewn together and hand-stitched down using a slip stitch as is the label.
Care Instructions Please wash this quilt on a very short and low temperature wash as the wool or cotton batting can be damaged. Drying flat without tumble drying is essential to keep its shape and fluffiness.
