Yesterday Myrt from my guild came by with bags of donated cotton fabric from an elderly lady who was going into a nursing home. Among the various treaures were five pastel 15" Dresden Plate blocks, which I combined with some of my fabric stash to create this small throw for the chemo patients at our local hospital. Now to quilt it -- I have selected an off white flannel for the backing because I heard that chemo patients often feel chilled as if they can't regulate their temperature at times. I hope this quilt is a comfort to someone.
This is Sue Bennett's quilt that she was gracious enough to give to me to quilt for her. Isn't it beautiful?
In the middle of the quilt is a flag. I quilted the Pledge of Allegiance in the red stripes.
In the next picture you can see a side view of the quilt showing one of the outer borders with feathered half circles in them. These feathered triangles alternate with busy print triangles in which I placed an orange skin (continuous curve) pattern.
