“Protea” is a printed quilt top. The star of this piece is the King Protea which is South Africa’s national flower. It occurs naturally in the wild, and many people have them growing in their gardens.
“Protea” is a lifelike image as opposed to blocks and colour plays. It will work beautifully as an art quilt, where quilters can use thread play to add colour and depth. For this purpose, a black and white as well as a colour version is available.
“Protea” is printed on 100% lightweight cotton or a silky polyester blend. The cotton is crisp and smooth, think 400 count sheets. The silky is a polyester blend that is a soft, very silky and luxurious fabric with a slight sheen.
“Protea” is one layer of fabric that you could either quilt or use for other projects.
- Machine washable with cold water on a gentle cycle using a mild detergent
- Every “Protea” piece is printed individually. It is not mass-produced.
- Each piece will produce a functional quilt and does not require any piecing.
