Designer Laura Howe has ventured into the home goods category. This piece is beyond just a quilt, it is an art piece. Quilts have a long history of women working together to make something beautiful. In the past, women would work for months to make a special hand-sewn quilt. They symbolism of these is varied and very significant. This quilt has been hand made by the designer herself so please allow 30 days or so for yours to be completed. She has chosen the black and red octopus fabric for the center squares and each square is slightly different. The surrounding fabric is a black and cream fern. Surrounding that, is the black and white outline, a folklore fabric with images symbolizing all sorts of superstitious imagery. This is a piece that will last a lifetime. The size is for a queen-sized bed. The fabric is 100% cotton.
