Do's Latest Quilt and Cushions

Isn't this a real beauty????? Please click on the photos to enlarge. You need to enlarge to see the real beauty of her quilt.
This is one of the latest of Do's quilts..and I think is one of the prettiest. It reminds me so of stained glass ... the colors so rich and vibrant.
I'm sure this one will travel about as all her other original designs do..specially the Sampler and the Baby Sunbonnet Sue. Do is a fabulous designer, both of quilts and patterns. She sometimes teases and scolds me for being lazy and not getting on with projects, both quilting and other crafts. I try to tell her how busy I am, but she says"Listen here, you lazy,lazy woman"... :) . Her work is pretty enough to make up for my lazyiness I hope.. :).

Another view of her beautiful quilt and another of her projects. She designed the hanging headboard and the matching cushions to her quilt.
Do is so truly talented..she has taught me so much about quilting, design, color and applique.. aand most important, she is always there to offer encouragement. She has the attitude of never give up and she inspires me to do the same. As you may be able to tell, I deeply respect my friend..and love her dearly. We have laughed together, cried together and shared our families. Do is in England..and I am in Texas..and we may never meet in person, however, most days we do our voice chat over messenger as we've done for the past two years. I love out talks, our brainstorming over projects..out sharing of families... I just deeply love our friendship. So thank you my sweet friend and team blogger friend Do...and thank you for sharing your beautiful quilts and cushions with us.
There is one more project that I will save for another day..another project of Do's. I can't wait for you to see it....


  1. My goodness, what an amazing quilt and headboard. Do is truly an inspiration....this is just lovely. I can not wait to see your next project.
