This graphically creative little quilt would be perfect in so many places; a pediatrician or veterinarian's office, a child's room, or for that matter, any room owned by a child at heart! In barely used condition, the Turkey red letters and animals have been hand appliqued and embellished. The 2 3/4 inches sashing has been created by topstitching 3/8 inch strips of Turkey red over the quilt top in a grid pattern.

The crosshatch hand quilting inside the sashing is 5/8 inches apart, and outside the sashing is 1 1/4 inches apart. The center rectangle has been diagonally quilted to create a large diamond and crosshatch quilted in a 5/8 inch grid in the remaining area. The 3/8 inch Turkey red binding has been separately applied, and the backing is white cotton. Professionally hand washed by Betsey this little treasure can be shipped to you on approval for private viewing.

A wonderful work of textile art made for a special child's bassinet. It was carefully used and is in lovingly cared for perfect condition. This softly muted Turkey red and white beauty would be a spectacular piece of art on your wall, or a very special crib quilt for that special baby. Professionally hand washed by Betsey it is ready to send to you on approval for private viewing in your home.
