One-Of-A-Kind Eco Printed Quilt

Eco-printing is a technique where plants, leaves and flowers leave their shapes, color, and marks on fabric. Plant material bundled inside of cloth is steamed or boiled to release the dye found naturally inside the plant, creating a contact print in the shape of the leaf or flower used. The results are exceptional and unpredictable which make them an exciting and unique art form!

This quilt is created in many steps, using fresh leaves. Each quilt is unique and takes several days to dye the fabric before starting to quilt.

This quilt was background-dyed with rich gold and eco-printed with ferns, maple, oak, walnut, and sumac collected in Northern California. Fabric is 100% cotton. Many of the leaves are free hand quilted to give them extra dimension. Quilt is backed in natural beige and trimmed in dark green.

Quilt measures 72 inches x 82 inches.
