Humble Quilts doll swap quilt - Birds in the Air... on a slow boat?
This is the quilt I sent over a month ago, and haven't heard whether it's arrived to its destination in Spokane, but I sort of doubt it has. In my last post, I showed you the quilt I received from the swap - from Lori herself - and I love it!
The one I made was inspired by a quilt I saw in the book Hidden Treasures by Lori Lee Triplett and Kay Triplett:
I used good Nogawa indigo from the family-run indigo factory David and I visited two years ago. It is the deepest deepest indigo!
I also wanted to use a wide variety of scraps in the quilt, so I used a lot of pinks and browns -
And attached the scrappy border, log cabin style:
See so many special little doll quilts here at Lori's blog.
I don't *think* Robin reads my blog but on the off chance she does - Robin.... so sorry this quilt is late getting to you! I thought it would fly airmail..... birds in the air and all - but instead I'm sure it's on a slow boat!
