Dawn's quilt

Before my sister Dawn passed away back in July, we tried to finish up her quilting projects.  Dawn and I with some help from her friends, finished up a quilt for her friend Anne.  We had discussed another quilt project she had started at the time also.  That second project didn't get finished until a couple of weeks ago.  With the help of my great friends Penny, Olivia, Paula and Shauna, we were able to get the quilt finished.  I am posting a photo of the quilt, but please don't tell my sister's son Raymond.  It may be a while before he receives it even though it will be heading south in the next few days. 

Dawn chose to do strip pieced blocks for the entire quilt.  She wanted decorative stitching on each seam in the blocks.  Plus she wanted a summer quilt containing no batting.  This is what she got. 

A huge Thanks to all the ladies that were so helpful in helping me finish it!

Hope you are having a great day!
