Quilt information and care

Specializing in handmade, machine-stitched art quilts. These quilts make excellent fabric art wall hangings, using the hanging sleeve on the back. Each quilt is a unique, colorful design by the artist, Jane Hicks, an experienced quilter.

I use all-cotton fabric (the batting is either 100% cotton or 80% cotton, 20% polyester) which is machine washable. The binding is French double fold style. These works of art are new. I design and make these in my home, a smoke- and pet-free environment.

Quilts should not be dry cleaned; the chemicals will harm the colors. I do not pre-wash the batting, so it will shrink somewhat when the quilt is washed, giving it an "antique quilt" look. The quilt will get softer the more it is washed. Batik colors do not 'run'. Wash gently in cold water. Either line-dry or tumble-dry to soften it up.

When storing, always either roll the quilt on a tube, or fold on the bias. Either method will prevent a crease from forming which is hard to get out.
