MOJAVE 2 Modern wall quilt 33 by 40 inches
This wall quilt is made from a printed fabric panel by designer/artist Noelle Phares for Paintbrush Studio Fabrics. The fabric artist has rendered a beautiful composition that combines natural shapes with intricate geometric lines and angles. This scene has vibrant color in turquoise, aqua, aloe, terra cotta, burnt orange, black and white. I layered this beautiful abstract desert panel with batting and a solid blue backing and added vertical quilting lines using white thread.
The cotton batting and vertical quilting lines give the wall hanging form and structure, allowing it to hang flat and square against the wall. Corner pockets and a hanging sleeve on the back allow for easy wall display. You will need a wooden dowel (round or flat slat) cut to 39 inches. Thread the dowel through the hanging sleeve and tuck dowel ends into corner pockets. Hang on the wall by setting the dowel on small nails or pushpins.
After construction, the wall quilt was machine washed in cold, tumble dried on low for 10 minutes, then removed from the dryer while partially damp and laid flat to air dry. If you continue this care, no further shrinkage will occur.
