Dori's been busy lately putting together a new baby quilt for a women's shelter near her, and it's really sweet.
It's an Hourglass - lots of great brights combined with white.
She's getting better at taking photos of the whole process for me to share with you, for which I am grateful - to me it's about sharing the process as much as the final product. The blocks are about 4.5" - she started with a 6" block.
She's only machine quilted a few quilts but with every one gets better and better. This one is quilted following the diagonal seams, which I like.
It's bound and backed with a large, multi-coloured plaid - you can see a strip of binding hanging on the left side of this pic. Just love bias binding in plaids - there's something about having the checks on the point that really appeals to me.
There was a baby girl born in the shelter about five weeks ago, so it will be for her. When it was bundled up for delivery Dori included a few soft and cuddly stuffed toys made by our friend Nancy - a thoughtful and wonderful parcel for any new mother and child....M
