Quilts from the Information Age, Part I

The top of this quilt is primarily linen with some cotton and a little hemp. Some of the fabric was naturally dyed by the Object Apparel folks in Detroit, MI, my favorite Wolverine stop. The batting is cotton, reclaimed. The back is pieced from vintage sheets. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. The binding is cotton and hand stitched.
