Putnam-Hauser Linen Quilt, 2011, 98″ x 110″, machine pieced, hand quilted, linen.
The Putnam-Hauser family commissioned this king-sized, modern-improv quilt, made from 100% linen. They live in the Sunset district of San Francisco. We worked together to pick a subtle color palette reminiscent of their coastal, fog-drenched environment. I improvised the pattern using simple horizontal bands of color.
The quilt took 50 hours to complete. The cost of materials, including linen for the front and back of the quilt, one cotton batting and one polyester batting, and thread came to $550 + cost of labor $3000.
