little sister quilt

Doodle Baby, 2010, 35" x 45"

For Liz Holland’s Baby Girl No. 1, I overly hand stitched her baby quilt for five months. For Baby Girl Number 2, I hand stitched this whole cloth quilt with hot pink and orange threads over a four-month period. Then I doodled, with SetaSkrib dye pens, on the black and white top fabric for almost six hours.

Both the top and backing fabric are vintage African fabrics that Maureen Noble picked up in South Africa 20 years ago.

That is absolutely mind boggling! What a beautiful quilt- this friend must be very special to receive such a glorious gift of love
