Piper's Quilt

This was sent off to my great niece, Piper, in Minnesota soon after her first birthday.



This is my head start on a quilt for a great nephew due to be born in March. The hourglass blocks are 5".

Last week I visited the Virginia Quilt Museum with some friends. I especially enjoyed seeing Dawn's quilt in the American Quilt Study Group's quilt study of civil war era quilts. Her quilt is gorgeous! I'm going to try to get back to Harrisonburg for another look before the exhibit is gone.

  2. Piper's quilt is a great traditional pattern in lively colors--a winning combination. Love how you have worked her name on the back.
    Those hourglass blocks look very crisp in the solids. Wonderful bold graphics to catch the baby's eye.
    You are so good to make quilts for grand nieces and nephews. I didn't even get them to my nieces and nephews, let alone their children.

  10. The placement of light's and darks in Piper's Scrappy Jacob's Ladder is inspired and adds a whole new dimension to the pattern. What a wonderful quilt!
