A bespoke Hand quilted baby blanket/play mat designed and made by Tessa Layzelle specifically for our children’s collection, A Small Triangle. A soft summer colour palette of lemon yellow, icy blue, soft beige, pale pinks and green. Crafted from an assortment of hand dyed linens, using natural dyes from avocado stones and dock leaves. The abstract shaped design is appliquéd, quilted and then the blanket has been backed with the same linen. Lined with 100% cotton batting.
Each handmade quilt comes with a handmade swatch card detailing the individual elements of the design. Each quilt will differ slightly in shapes but colours are from the same dye batch so are consistent in shade. The two available will differ slightly in layout from the one in the image here.
Tessa Layzelle works from her home studio and produces work that blurs the boundaries between functionality and decoration. She studied fine art painting and is a self taught quilter. These beautiful practical paintings are designed to be functionally used but move easily into wall hanging or decoration when they are no longer used as a blanket or play mat. An heirloom piece to be treasured for many generations to come.
This blanket measures 64 cm x 84 cm
