Artisan Quilt : "Camel Picnic"
Designed and made by Cleveland artist Jen Adams, this one-of-a-kind, quilted lap blanket would make a lively statement in any room.
This piece measures 43-1/2" x 44" (110.5cm x 112cm) and is made using an assemblage of vibrant upholstery-weight log cabin style blocks on one side with the now-discontinued (and much sought after) Cowtan & Tout "Caramoor" print in taupe on the reverse. Caramoor features whimsical camels, lions and antelopes frolicking among distinctive flora. Traditional quilt-weight cotton serves as the the binding.About the Artist:
