My next door neighbour, Dorothy, is a quilter too. She had been working away on a colourful kiddies quilt using all kinds of novelty prints. With the binding all stitched in place, she asked me over to have a look at her new quilt. I helped Dorothy pin the quilt up onto the design board, stood back, and snapped a few photos. Very nice indeed. There were flowers, teddies, cats and chickens, together with some nice New Zealand prints as well. Lots of interesting things for a young child to look at.
The pieced back is constructed in hues of pretty blues and pinks. I particularly liked the rainbow print used in the middle. And as every quilter knows, the label on the back is most important too.
Dorothy did a great job, and I’m sure the little girl concerned is going to love her quilt of many colours.
