Though my Monday Paddington Quilters group is in recess for the summer I thought I’d show you some more of their beautiful work - this time a quilt made by Desley for a friend of hers whose little boy, John, lost his battle with cancer earlier this year. Little John’s mother gave Desley a portfolio of paintings and little notes he had written when he was alive and, with some guidance from Di B, Desley printed these out on Printed Treasures fabric and incorporated them into her quilt. In his short life John touched many people. His quirky paintings and sketches of birds are everywhere on the quilt, but this is the block that really melts my heart. What a heartwarming note for John’s mother to treasure – and what a generous gift from Desley to her friend.
