Folk Baby, 2008, 38" x 33"
GIFTED TO OLIVIA DUNHAM
The top of this quilt is made with just seven strips of fabric. The piecing took about twenty minutes to cut and sew, and the hand stitching about 55 hours—over a five-month period.
Minimal piecing, maximum stitching. I chose this approach because the boxy patterns of the central fabrics, including one by Nancy Crow, already looked like little quilts.
The recipient of this quilt is Liz Holland, the soon-to-be mother of a little baby girl.
