Liam’s Baby Quilt

Baby Liam was born just after my Father died, and is all the more precious to us for it. I love bright baby blankets, and machine appliqued this one with a solid satin stitch to withstand the countless washes a really-used-baby-blanket will get. 🙂

Barbara’s Farewell Quilt

I knew exactly what I wanted, that prickly beauty of the pineapple. It was also the perfect symbol for my very hospitable friend, departing, as expats do, for her new life in Texas. I knew I wanted to do a modified log cabin, with shadings, and I knew I wanted to do tufts coming out the center of each cabin. Fresh pineapple is plentiful and delicious in Doha.
